Welcome to Mrs. Bebell’s Room!
Amy Bebell is the
“All good things are wild and free”
– Henry David Thoreau
Mrs. Bebell is a passionate scientist and she instills this love of all things science in her students. Mrs. Bebell is also excited to be the social studies teacher for grades three through eight this year. The fifth and sixth-grade students begin their day with Mrs. Bebell. Here, they read engaging and rigorous science and social studies texts that make local and global connections. These grade-level texts push the students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers. In addition, students do word work which includes vocabulary building and spelling, independent reading at their individual reading levels, and writing about reading.
During the day, the students in the fifth and sixth-grade classroom stay in their homerooms and the teachers come to them. Mrs. Tapley teaches grade level math to each individual class and Mrs. Baird teaches literacy and writing. Students leave the classroom daily when they attend their two specials.
