Welcome to 5th Grade Reading! See below for information on electronic lessons!
"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one." 

  My name is Carrie Gullett and I teach 5th grade English Language Arts. This is my sixth year in this position and my ninth year teaching ELA at WMS. I received my Bachelor's degree in Middle Childhood Education from Shawnee State University in 2009. I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree through the University of the Cumberlands. I am extremely excited and proud to be teaching 5th grade!

 In my classroom, we will focus on close reading of both literary and informational text. Students will learn to utilize a vast array of reading skills to aide them in recalling relevant and important information from what they read. We will also focus on writing in response to reading and developing skills to answer short answer and extended response questions thoroughly and accurately.

2020-2021 School Year

Hello and welcome to 5th grade reading!
I will be your child's teacher this year and I look forward to making the most of our unique situation and schedule for the upcoming school year. For weekly agendas and class information, please use the link below to visit my Virtual Classroom. Please contact me during planning period or email me anytime. I will return your calls/emails as promptly as possible!

Important Information
  1. Have your child access their Google Classroom for Reading in order to view their assignments. Topics are sorted by week in order for them to easily locate their work.
  2. Students can continue taking AR tests through Renaissance Place from home. Use this link to take tests between the hours of 8:00-3:30.

Contact Information
Email me at or call the school during my planning period (1:56-2:45).
Course Information
All students are required to meet their individualized AR goals each grading period. Check your child's AR chart to see their goal which has been determined using their STAR test results and individual needs. AR will be a graded assignment.
*All students have weekly informational articles which they must read and respond to by Friday of each week. This assignment, aside from AR, will most likely be your child's only homework assignment each week for reading class. We work hard in class and get the job done- after-school time is for studying, time with family, and being a kid! :)
