Students will learn 5th grade curriculum from three teachers that specialize in academic areas.
In math, we will focus on adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. We will also learn more about geometry and the basics of algebra.
In reading we will be focusing on vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. Using the writing process, students will compose pieces of writing that will cover the following genres: Personal Narrative, Persuasive, Poetry, Research Report, Imaginative Narrative, Compare and Contrast, Cause and Effect, and Argumentative.
In science students will be engaged in the use of simple machines, the study of the human body, using mixtures and solutions, and probing the Sun, Moon and Stars.
In social studies students they will delve into a study of geography, traveling through the Revolutionary War, our government, Westward Expansion, and the Idustrial Revolution.
Working together, we will make this your child's best year yet.
