Niedert, Kelsey

Welcome to Mrs. Niedert's 5th Grade Math Website!

Week of 3/27/17:

This week we will have our Spring Math MAP Test. We have from Monday - Wednesday during class to complete these. Anyone absent or not finished after that will complete the MAP test in a make-up session.

During class we have started our Geometry unit. In this unit we are focusing on classifying two-dimensional shapes according to their characteristics and attributes. We will be working to create "hierarchies" of shapes so we can give shapes ALL of the names that apply to them from the least to the most specific. We will have a TEST over our Geometry Unit on Tuesday, April 4th.

Here are several helpful videos and practice sites:

​A little about me:
     This is my seventh year of teaching and my third year here at WVMS. For the first four years I taught 7th Grade Math at Oldham County Middle School outside of Louisville. My husband, Chad, and I met at Xavier University - Go Muskies! After getting my Bachelor's at Xavier I received my Master's in Teacher Leadership from Asbury University.
     I love my job here at Walton-Verona and it is because of the wonderful students that I get to know and grow with every day. There will be some challenging moments in Math, but through hard work and fun approaches to learning we will work together to have great success!
     Outside of school I love spending time with my family and friends, exercising, traveling, watching sports, and playing the piano.

Thank you for your support! I look forward to working with you this year!
