Mrs. L. Lehmann's 5th Grade

Hello! My name is now Mrs. Lehmann as I just recently got married and I am still so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Mishawaka Catholic School this year! While this has been my first year teaching 5th grade E/LA, Social Studies, and Religion, it also marks my fifth year with MCS. Over the past four years, I have taught Media Arts, Dance, Study Skills, and served as part of the resource team. I continue to look forward to watching my 5th grade students learn, grow, and prepare themselves for their vocations!

God bless!

All my best,
Mrs. L. Lehmann

Story This Week...

Novel Study

*NOTE: I highly recommend that students take home a Journey's Reading Book during the week to read the story once more. We will read the story in class, but rereading material always benefits the reader. 

Read Works

We have started a focus on reading comprehension in 5th grade with a program called Read Works. Students will be reading passages and answering questions to gain more skills in retaining and understanding information. 

How to get students to their assignments from read works

1. Have students go to www.readworks.org/student or click this direct link: Read Works

2. Students enter class code G5VCT5
