Welcome to My Fifth Grade Classroom

Hello! My name is Alexandra Medley and I teach fifth grade here at KIS. I am so excited to start my fourth year of teaching! I was born and raised in Kannapolis and I cannot imagine teaching anywhere else! I went to elementary, middle and high school in Kannapolis City Schools. I graduated from UNCC in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a concentration in Mathematics. I love this school and 5th grade!! GO WONDERS!!

Feel free to contact me by email or by school phone at (704) 932-4161.

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:

Educational Philosophy/Vision: I believe in creating a positive communicative classroom where the students feel safe to share ideas with their peers and teacher.

Upcoming NC Check in Dates:

Social Studies: We are currently learning about the Government of the US. 

Science: We are learning about Force and Motion! There are a lot of vocabulary words such as force, motion, gravity, momentum, inertia, speed, velocity, distance, time, mass, matter, constant, decreasing, increasing, acceleration, friction, balanced force and unbalanced force.

Math: We are currently studying multiplying and dividing fractions! At the end of this unit your child should be able to add/subtract/multiply/divide decimals & fractions. Please be sure to continue these skills with your child at home. We are constantly reviewing these concepts in class but it would help them to practice at home.

Things parents/guardians can do to help:
  • Check planners every night for homework and important information.  Please sign them each night. 
  • Please check your class dojo daily to see your child's progress.
  • Look for the Tuesday Night Folder that comes home each week!
