Mr. Danilack's 5th Grade Homepage
It is my pleasure to be working with the bright and energetic 5th grade students at Valley View School. Every day is a new adventure. One of the highlights of teaching 5th grade is being a part of the students' developmental journey from thinking in concrete terms to thinking in the abstract. Our class works collaboratively to develop higher level, critical thinking skills. By connecting individual thoughts, the students begin to synthesize information and discover the 'bigger picture'. They evaluate themes by making judgments about them and connect those ideas to their own lives. These concepts apply to all academic areas, even math :) We're learning not just content, but more importantly, we're gaining a better understanding of our thinking.
