THIS IS THE YEAR THAT YOUR CHILD CAN SUCCEED IN MATH!!!
My name is Mr. Sims. Most people describe me as gregarious, avuncular and fun-loving. I would describe myself as passionate for learning. My hope is that I can pass on my desire for lifelong learning to the children that I teach. I hope that all of my students leave my fifth grade classroom loving math!
With that in mind, this website is an amazing tool for your child!
On this website you can find test preparation materials, powerpoints and various other things that will help your student learn to be an independent learner.
Also I have created videos that cover every major topic throughout the year. This is great for you as a parent because you can see how your child learns the concept these days. (And dare I say it might just aid you in helping them with homework in case you've forgotten a concept or two since 5th grade <wink>). These videos are great for your child because they can work at their pace, get tutoring through videos at home and in general become a math stud or studette. In fact, in the past a number of students have jumped ahead in the school year and learned things that we won't even begin until the second semester. If your child has that craving for knowledge, they can literally learn the majority of their 5th grade year as fast as they want.
In closing, I’m looking forward to a wonderful year! Carpe diem!
