Fifth Grade News

Welcome to the Fifth Grade Cafe!


This week we practiced identifying theme. We also looked at two fictional stories and compared how they approached a similar theme.


We focused on including all elements of a story into our writing this week. The students made sure their stories had a definite problem and worked on telling it in a way that would interest the reader.


This week in math, we renamed units within the metric system using our knowledge of the base ten system. We also compared decimals.

A Peek into Next Week

Reading: Next week we will continue our focus on literature. We will discuss and write about how an image enhances our understanding of a story. We will also analyze characters by comparing and contrasting their qualities and support with evidence.

Writing: Next week in writing we elaborate on important parts of our story in order to draw out the tension.

Math: We will continue working with decimals. We will round decimals to any given place value.
