Welcome to Mrs. Shields' Classroom!
Mrs. Amari Shields
Science and Writing Teacher
Hello everyone! I am Amari Shields and I am a 5th Grade Science and Writing Teacher. I'm so excited for the 2018-2019 school year and everything we have lined up for our students this year!
Fifth grade is a very special time for students in science. For the first time ever, they are being exposed to intense science instruction, very similar to the kind of classes they will have in middle school. It is my job to help them prepare for the Science STAAR test they will be taking in May and become responsible scientists ready to answer questions on a journey to make the world a better place.
Here's a window into the fun we have in our classroom!
We are starting a new incentive program in our class called the SHOGUN SHOWDOWN! Our science class has been transformed into a mystical world where we are using our knowledge to battle those that stand in our way!
