Welcome to fifth grade!
Fifth grade is a critical year in your child’s education. Your child will benefit from any help you can give them at home. A positive attitude and good study habits are necessary to be a successful learner. Please support your child by reinforcing what is taught in the classroom. Here is a list of areas we will be focusing on this year.
Reading – Students are now using reading to learn other subjects so we will be focusing on how to comprehend many different kinds of literature. You can help by asking student questions about what their reading and what it means.
Writing – Students will be writing many different types of writing from informational to writing within the subjects. We will focus on making our writing very clear and understandable.
Mathematics – Students will be increasing their expertise in multiplication and division and using those skills to solve problems. They will be expanding their knowledge of fractions and decimals. We will also focus on Geometry and measurement. You can help your student by making sure they know all their multiplication and division facts.
Science –Students will cover all 4 divisions of Science – Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science and Space and Technology.
Social Studies – Students will focus on learning about the history of the United States, with emphasis on the early colonies and the American Revolution.
