  • New School Year
    Welcome to 5th Grade Social Studies!  Your students don't have to worry about being new to 5th grade because I'm new too!  My name is Cathleen Rahimzadeh and I know many of your children from my time as a Title I aide at Kit Carson.  I returned to school for my Master's degree in teaching and was fortunate to be hired to teach my very favorite subject:  social studies.

    We'll ease into the year with locker assignments, learning our way around the 5th grade planners, and practicing procedures.  I have several "get to know you" activities I think your children will enjoy.  For Wednesday and Thursday we'll stay with our homerooms, but on Friday the students will meet their other three teachers, just for about 20 minutes each.  On Monday, August 20th we'll begin our geography unit.

    My goal for this year is to foster in your children a love of history and social studies.  I hope they'll enjoy learning about early American settlers and acting out stories from the Revolutionary War.  Map skills will be embedded throughout the year, and we even have a class entitled "chocolate economics!"

    Thanks for sharing your students with me.  I think it's going to be a fantastic year!
