Mrs. Amy Starr

Welcome to Mrs. Starr's 5th grade ELA page!  I am passionate about helping our students grow in their mastery of ELA concepts, as well as fostering a caring and positive learning community.  Feel free to email me at with any questions or concerns as I look forward to partnering with you and your child this year.  Also, you can reach me at FMS at 931.438.2533.  Please view the Assignments page to see helpful learning tools for our class throughout the year.  Reading and writing is at the heart of all learning, and since we are ALL life long learners, I look forward to assisting your learning growth this year!

  • Please work toward our quarterly nine weeks reading goal of 300 pages.  You may choose any book, from the FMS library, the public library, or your home library.  Students have set a nightly reading goal and should be reading each night toward the goal, as well as logging in their reading logs at least twice a week.  Quizzes may be taken during break on Wednesdays and Thursdays, or during their weekly Media Center/Library rotation.  Great reading rewards ([insert] free pizza, ice cream, Top 10 Reader, and reading reward parties) await when you achieve your reading goal!!!
