Ms. Sudduth

Welcome to Fifth Grade English Language Arts!


Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 School year! I am so honored and excited to be your child's Fifth Grade Language Arts teacher! 

About Me
 My name is Mrs. Sudduth. I am a Colonial Beach School alumnus! Go Drifters!  I received my Bachelors degree in Interdisciplinary Studies through WGU. My husband R.J. and I have three amazing children: Cheyenne, Alexandra (Ally), and Tristan. Some things I LOVE to do include playing guitar, singing, antique shopping, walking/hiking, and spending as much time as possible with my family! 

We are so excited to implement our new HMH Into Reading curriculum. Students will be diving into many authentic texts to build our reading skills. Students will have weekly assignments that will be completed during station time daily and due at the end of the week. In addition to classwork, students will have homework due on Fridays, Spelling Quizzes, writing assignments & projects, and unit tests.  The grading will be weighed as follows:
Tests & Projects - 45%
Quizzes - 25%
Classwork 20%
Homework - 10%
*Please check PowerSchool OFTEN for updated grades, missing assignments, and late work.

 Some GREAT resources we will be using in the classroom can also be accessed at home!!! This websites include:
