• Welcome to Mrs. Zelins' Class 


    Welcome to fifth grade!  Fifth grade is a milestone year for students in Hamilton.  Not only is it their last year of elementary school, but they begin the transition to middle school and becoming more independent and responsible.  Many things are learned this year to help prepare the students for middle school in areas such as academics, working together in groups, and taking responsibility.  Academically, students continue to build on comprehension strategies in Reading, improve their Writing, and learn more advanced content and strategies in math.  I look forward to a great school year!
