Hi! My name is Karie Rains and I am a 5th grade Language Arts teacher here at WCME. I have been teaching for over 22 years and I have taught many grades. 5th grade is a favorite of mine and I'm so happy to be your child's teacher! This year we are excited to have a brand new reading series and every child will be issued a reading textbook to use for the year. I will give you and your child more information about that later, This year in language arts, your child will work on 3 specific areas in reading: fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary. I am really looking forward to seeing how much growth your child will see in his or her learning. It will be a great year! Please make sure to connect with me on ClassDojo so I can instantly message you about school manners and you can see how your child's behavior is while at school. Feel free to message me at anytime!
