Welcome to my class!

My name is Ben Anderson and this is my seventh year teaching fifth grade at HLWW Middle School.  I teach Reading and Math.  I am also the varsity head football coach and an assistant wrestling coach here at the high school.  I grew up in Annandale, MN and graduated college from Saint John's University.  I enjoy fishing, hunting, coaching, playing sports, and spending time with my wife and two younger brothers.  Feel free to contact me by email or phone if you ever have any questions or concerns.  I look forward to an awesome school year here at HLWW Middle School!  Go Lakers!

Reading MCA Sampler

Pearson Access 


Math: Once we are completed with our Star Math Test this week, we will begin a topic that involves using the order of operations to solve the equation.  Students will get familiar with how to write their own equations for work problems and then solve them in the correct order.   

Reading: Students this week are focusing on determining the main idea of a nonfiction text.  We have found that the headings and first few sentences of a paragraph are great places to search for the main idea.
