Hello there my fifth grade students and parents! I am Mrs. Carmen King, teacher of Class 5-KING for 2016-2017. I welcome you all to our classroom home.
I love teaching. It is one of my passions because I love to watch people learn. My favorite subjects are reading and writing. They were my favorite when I was in fifth grade and are still my favorites now. To me there’s nothing better than a great story. I love to read them and I love to write them, as well. I, of course, also like the other subjects: math, social studies, science, music and art. I like to find interesting ways to help students learn new things. One of those interesting ways is through a LATIC. You will learn more about LATIC (including what each letter stands for) when you get to our classroom.
Outside of school I am a wife and a mom. I have two sons, Kenric Jr. and Kijan. They are full of energy and lots of fun. You will sometimes hear a story or two about our family adventures. I hope you will share your family adventures with me, as well.
The last thing I will share about myself is another one of my passions: poetry. You’ll find a few poems sprinkled throughout this webpage. I love words and like to spread them throughout and share them with the universe when I can.
In the rest of this website you will find information about our classroom and curriculum. I hope it is helpful. Enjoy!
If you are a dreamer, come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender, come sit
by the fire
For we have some flax-golden
tales to spin.
