With my favorite scientist, Albert Einstein

Well, sort of, this was taken in London at Madame Tussauds wax museum last  summer!

Obviously this isn't really Albert Einstein! This was taken last summer at Madame Tussauds wax museum in London, last summer. 

About Me

On the first day of class, we created circle Thinking Maps about ourselves.  The students did a wonderful job with their Thinking Maps! I have the best students, ever! :) 

On my Thinking Map, I included information about my family, educational background, teaching experience, and interests. 

I am originally from Birmingham, Alabama from a family of 7 children!  I grew up on Pensacola Beach every summer from the time I was a baby, until my family finally retired there.

My  husband and I have one son, who recently graduated from Florida State and is currently in law school at the University of Miami. 

I graduated from Florida State University three times! I have a Bachelor of Science (BS),  a Master of Science (MS), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D), all in Science Education. I guess you could say that I love going to school and learning. I still take classes and special workshops when I can. I was a National Writing Workshop fellow this summer at the University of West Florida, and truly enjoyed it! 

I love spending time with my family more than anything. I also love teaching, helping with animal rescue, playing tennis, traveling, going to the beach, and watching Florida State football! Go Noles! And this year, I will be pulling for Miami, except when they play FSU! 

I have included some photos of myself and my family, including my pets for you to see. I have my own mini animal rescue with five cats, two dogs, one turtle, and three frogs!

A special thanks to Olivia for our awesome Frankenstein notepads, to JT's mom for special candy treats, and to Dr. Hahn for a Frankenstein bag filled with goodies!

Another highlight of the day was reading our own original Science Fiction stories to our classmates. We discovered that we have some pretty amazing writers with very creative minds in our class!

Weekly Homework Assignments

Weekly Homework Assignments

English/Language Arts



  • Students should be reading AR books for at least 25 minutes, every night.
  • We will have a spelling test every Thursday and a test from the Wonders Reading book every Friday. Some weeks will be different due to holiday and special programs. 
  • Each day, we will have grammar, reading, and/or writing activities. Homework assignments will vary depending on the skills studied each day. 
  • Students have a Writer's Notebook they will write in most days, as well as an occasional homework writing assignment, such as a story or poem. 
  • In addition to other assignments, students should complete 4 Science Current Events.   If students do not have access to the newspaper, the Internet, or television news, I will provide newspaper clippings to read and summarize.  Four Current Events should summarized on a special form and turned in during a 9 week period for a total of 100 points. These forms are available at any time for students to pick up. 
  • Science tests will take place as we finish each Chapter. Quizzes may be given during each chapter on various topics. 
  • Science Notebooks will be checked for a grade, twice to three times per grading period. There is a rubric to follow on the back of the students' notebooks. 
Social Studies
  • Students will have a Social Studies reader to read every two weeks. There are activities in the reader to complete during the week for homework, as well as online activities. 
  • Students will have a test on the weekly reader in Social Studies approximately every other week. 
  • Each nine weeks, a Civic Responsibility Service Learning project will be assigned. Students will write a proposal and then complete the project,  once it is approved. The project may be as simple as helping a parent around the house, tutoring a little brother or sister, helping a neighbor or larger, such as helping a community or church organization with  a larger project. The project will then be presented using a poster or slide show. 
  • Students will keep their citizenship folders with them for ALL classes. 
  • Each student starts out with 100 points in Citizenship every week. If students do not follow classroom and/or school rules, they will lose points from their teachers. On Fridays, students will be given a weekly Citizenship grade. On the following Monday, they need to bring their signed red Citizenship folders from the previous week back to school.  Please make sure that you ask to see your child's Citizenship folder each weekend, and make sure they bring it to school with them each and every day.

Welcome to 5th Grade!



Hello, students! I am very happy and honored to be your 5th grade teacher this year. You are a wonderful group of young people! I am looking forward to working working with you in Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies! You will love having Mrs. Fox-McClellan for Mathematics!


For parents, this is just a short description of what we will be doing. I will be posting much more information, later. 

Science: We will start the year by looking at The Practice of Science, followed by Chemistry and Energy. There will be lots of fun things to learn! We will be creating an interactive science notebook, doing some fun labs, and doing some reading in science. These readings will not just be from the science book, but also from some excellent fiction books with a science theme. 

The first book is called "The Fourteenth Goldfish". This is very funny and interesting fiction book with lots of good science information! "The Fourteenth Goldfish" was A SUNSHINE STATE AWARD FINALIST in 2016. 


English/Language Arts: We will be using our textbook and workbook, as well as reading some great books along with them. Students will be keeping a writing journal, as well as a daily journal with the book, "Wonder". In your writing journal, we will be creating poetry, thinking maps, studying vocabulary words, and writing books! Yes, writing books! I will be reading a lot of great books to you to get you thinking and writing! I spent this summer at the National Writing Project and got some great ideas! 


Social Studies: In Social Studies, we will start out learning about maps, the earth, the continents, and the oceans of the world.  Each month, we will learn about different continents by using some interesting stories and books. With the new Social Studies readers, we will also be using your Chrome Books to study Social Studies. You will keep a Social Studies folder in class. 


Stay tuned for more information about Dr. Hahn's Fifth Grade Class!

Science Olympiad Winners!

Congratulations to my students who participated in the Science Olympiad competition, this past weekend, at Washington High School. Out of 31 elementary schools, Cordova Park Elementary came in 5th place in the overall competition. Congratulations to those who won medals in a specific event, as well!

Science Olympiad was an extremely fun, team building, and science learning activity! 



Roy Hyatt Environmental Center Field Trip!

The class had a blast at the Roy Hyatt Environmental Center last week! The students were able to do a "Cache the STEM bug" scavenger hunt on the field trip.  The students learned how to go geocaching using a GPS unit, and found wonderful environmental treasures along the way. When they would find a plastic bin, or cache, there was a science activity in it. The "caches" had items such as snake skins, skulls, plants, and all sorts of environmental treasures. The goal was to solve a science mystery using the clues they found, then solving a word scramble. All students had a great time learning, and especially enjoying getting to meet some goats, a bearded dragon and a snake!

Grandparents' Day!

Some of our wonderful grandparents!

Aubrey's M & Ms.jpeg

Who Knew M & Ms could be so beautiful and scientific??!!

Thank you for sharing your photo, Aubrey!


This is what M&Ms dissolving in water looks like. Notice how the colors don't mix. This has to do with molecules. In our next Chapter on Matter, we will further explore such concepts! 


I have also attached on video on what happens when M&Ms dissolve in water. Who knew M&Ms dissolving in water could be so cool?!

Eclipse Video Taken in Smyrna, Tennessee

We have a very special video taken by one of our parents. Mr. Yeager, a pilot, captured this video in Smyrna, Tennessee, one of the locations along the Path of Totality where a total eclipse was visible. In the video, taken at 1:30 in the afternoon, you can see that it looks like a night sky. Very cool! 


Thank you, Mr. Yeager!
