Mr. Mitchell's Website
Introducing Mr. Mitchell
Welcome to my website for my classes at Rogers Middle School! This is my 10th year teaching middle school, between 5th and 6th grade, and almost 16 years in education total! I am married and have one daughter who attends one of the amazing Pearland Schools in the district! In my spare time, I like sports, to work out, and I like to read (if I have time!). I've taught grades from elementary, to middle school, even junior high level and love my middle school students and their individual unique perspectives on the two subjects I teach. I like to be very creative, hands-on, and learn by doing so that's why I love teaching Science and Social Studies. Both of these subjects are very collaborative and thought-provoking as they bring out creative ideas, interesting thoughts, and inquisitive minds to become HEROES WHO COMPLETE MY ASSIGNMENTS!
I teach 5th grade Science and Social Studies on TEAM 5T, who will all BE HEROES IN THE MAKING! This website will give you valuable resources to assist you in my classroom, as well as give you information on grading, tutorials and my conference times. The tab for class calendar will update for important days when major grades are being taken. There is also a tab for QUICK LINKS which lists websites to review Social Studies content (as well as other content areas) such as games, videos, and other links. We have many exciting things coming soon, so be sure to check back on my page often to keep up!
My conference time is
10:15-10:45 each day.
(Please try to schedule by email or phone
at least 2 days ahead if possible)
Parent and Student Information
Folders will be sent home every Thursday with important information such as graded work, work that needs corrections, accolades, and conduct cards. Conduct cards must be signed and returned NO LATER than Friday the same week.
Parents please remember to check SKYWARD to keep updated on the grades your child is receiving. We have shown all our students how to check SKYWARD themselves so they may stay on top of their work while becoming more independent.
If a student is absent, it is the student's responsibility to get absent work, activities, notes, or tests from the teacher or designated folder in the classroom.
WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, and FRIDAY
8:00 a.m. - 8:25 a.m.
(PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A PASS TO COME DOWN THE HALLWAY IN THE MORNING IF YOU NEED TUTORING)
WEEKLY CHECK IN for CLASS
December 9th - December 13th
This week we will be finishing our discussion on Weather and Climate. We will have a short Common Assessment over Weather and Climate on Tuesday. We will review the assessment on Wednesday and then start on our next unit of study, "Changes to the Earth's Surface" - basically .. LANDFORMS and how they are formed and what the land does to form them in areas all around the U.S. and the world. We will be getting a warmup for this unit, but it will NOT BE GRADED OR PICKED UP UNTIL WE RETURN FROM THE HOLIDAYS. This lesson over LANDFORMS will continue when we come back from the Christmas break - for any testing or other assignments are due.
**REMEMBER NEXT WEEK WE WILL BE REVIEWING ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY FOR OUR SCIENCE BENCHMARK TEST ON THURSDAY DECEMBER 19th!**
(It will be the longest test we have taken so far this year - 32 questions!)
This week in Social Studies we are discussing the Southern Colonies and will end the week with a short review and then QUIZ OVER THE THIRTEEN COLONIES. The students will answer questions over which colony had certain economies, which famous people were associated with which colonies, and what interesting things happened in certain colonies. They have all the information in their notebooks and we will review it before the test at the end of the week!!
ONLY TWO WEEKS TO GO TO THE CHRISTMAS BREAK!!!
