Welcome to Miss Gering's Page!
I am so excited to be at OHI this year with your students!
I am a literacy and social studies teacher here at OHI! I will be updating my page throughout the year with what we have been doing in class!
In my classroom, I think it is incredibly important to give students any tools that they may need to succeed. If there is anything I can do to help your student in class I am happy to work with you to figure out how to make that work. I believe that every student is capable of anything as long as they have someone willing to put in the work and guide them.
So far we have:
- learned how to read a map, map key, and a compass rose and we have made our own map!
- learned the continents and oceans
- learned the 50 states
- started learning about origin stories and Native American culture
- talked about Lewis and Clark and their expedition
So far we have:
- read a story about overcoming challenges
- read three different texts about Native American culture and the Lewis and Clark expedition
- written summaries
- talked about main ideas and key details in texts
- done independent reading
- practiced lots of notice and wonder charts
- had lots of group discussions
A Little Bit About Me!
My name is Rylee Gering and I am a first-year teacher! I just moved to Oak Harbor this summer after living in Bellingham and getting my degree at Western Washington University! I am SO excited to be teaching 5th-grade social studies and literacy this year! I have lived in Washington my whole life and love this area. I enjoy taking my dog out for walks and hiking as well as singing and doing fun craft projects.
