Miss Gunn (5th)
Welcome to 5th Grade!
My name is Miss Amanda Gunn and this is my first year at St. Aloysius. I earned my Bachelor's Degree at SUNY Fredonia and my Master's Degree at SUNY Buffalo State. I am NYS certified in Early Childhood (birth -2nd grade) and Childhood (grades 1-6). I am getting married this June and then will become Mrs. Pataye.

Math: We are half way through fractions. They are loving it!
ELA: We are working on Unit 1 of our vocabulary unit. There are quizzes every other week. We will be beginning narrative writing.

Social Studies: We will be beginning the study of Canada's geography, government, culture, and economics. We will begin our focus on the Inuit tribes that live in the Arctic region of North America.
Religion: We are almost done with Unit 2 which includes Jesus Christ, the son of God, The Paschal Mystery, and Thy Kingdom Come!
