Welcome to Mrs. Guy's ELA Classroom!

I'm Katie Guy! This is my 11th year teaching in Lexington and my fourth year teaching 5th Grade ELA.

I live in Galion with my husband, Jeremy, my daugthers, Liz, Emily, and Evie, and our two fur babies, Sissy and Ginger.

Below you will find an outline of the larger scale items for throughout the year.

I am excited to see the growth in all of my students!



Each student is asked to read daily at home for at least 20 minutes.

Each week students will be asked to complete:

- a weekly ELA packet that includes reading, writing, and language skills as homework

- a weekly response letter that will be completed in class to show knowledge of our weekly focus skills

- an indepth study of new vocabulary words in class 

- a spelling study activity every three weeks in class that coverse words from our vocabulary study



- one writing assignment every gradping period that focuses on the skills taught during that time frame

- one book study every grading period that focuses on the skills taught during that time frame



- Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) to show strengths and weaknesses in fluency, comprehension, and reading strategies

- weekly skill checks to assess students on their knowledge of current focous skills

- a daily language practice that spirals all ELA content
