About Me
Hello! My name is Mr. Annan and this is my seventh year teaching 5th grade at Onalaska. This year I am teaching Science. More accurately, we'll be covering Physical Sciences, Biology, Astronomy, and Chemistry. Be sure to head over to my classroom page HERE to see what we've been experimenting on in our labs!

Weekly Format
For 5th grade this year, students will be rotating between the four 5th grade teachers to be taught their core subjects. Mr. Smaciarz will be teaching Math, Mrs. Morast will be teaching ELA, Mrs. Card will be teaching ELA Extension, and I will be teaching Science.We believe that students beginning a rotating schedule in 5th grade is a great preview for middle school. In middle school they will go from rotating to four different classes, to seven. 

Students are expected to keep up with all science work. Science work consists of two parts: 
  • Lab packets that we work on together as a class.
  • Notebook work that consists of vocabulary definitions and success criteria.
This will become homework if not completed in class. All science work is designed to be used as a study guide for the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS).

Grading Policy and Missing Work
Students are responsible for all work assigned each week. Homework will always be due on a Friday, unless otherwise stated. Homework is considered LATE if it is not completed and turned in by Friday of the assigned week. LATE work will be docked points from the overall score. This format was designed to fit a routine that is upheld throughout the year. In the event of absence students are required to grab work for the days missed. In the event of an extended absence, students are required to request work prior to absence.
