Tyler Belanger-Grade 5

Dear Everyone,
    I am pleased to inform you that you have found the page to Mr. Belanger's 5th Grade Class of Witchcraft and Wizardry at Gilbert Elementary School. During the fifth grade year here, students will participate in many different subjects. 
    In potions (science) students will learn about the weather, landforms, rocks and minerals, and matter. Transfiguration (math) requires students to step outside of their comfort zone and turn the whole numbers we love so much into decimals and fractions. Once that has been completed we will learn to transfigure those into subtraction, multiplication, addition, and division sentences. History of Magic and Muggle Studies (Social Studies) puts a focus on North American history, the 50 states, as well as Civics and Government. Reading and writing will also be a large part of the curriculum and will help students develop efficient skills and practices in those areas.
 Information about the Headmaster of Room 20:
     My name is Tyler Belanger and I am one of the fifth grade teachers at Gilbert Elementary School. This is my second year teaching here at Gilbert and I absolutely love it! I graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington in May 2016 with a double major in elementary education and psychology as well as a minor in special education. 
     As you may have noticed, I am a big fan of the Harry Potter series and it is because of this that we will also be doing a whole unit on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by JK Rowling (one of my favorite books). Below are some links to a few web sites that the class uses on a daily basis. 

    If you need to contact me for any reason please feel free to send an email to tyler.belanger@augustaschools.org or call my school extension (3620)
