What's Happening in 5th Grade?

Mrs. Eichar's Class

What Have We Been Learning?

Here's what we learned in February:

Reading - Point of View

Writing - Ecosystem Research and Opinion Writing

Math - Place Value/Multiplying and Dividing Decimals

Science - Life Science

Social Studies - Western Hemisphere

What's Next?


We are reviewing concepts learned earlier in the year, as well as learning how to analyze the author's craft - why the author chose certain structures for the plot or language within the story.


Our focus will be on how writers use figurative language within their writing. We'll look at how that is done through narrative, informational, and opinion writing.


We are moving on to learn about volume! As we discover important concepts about this type of measurement, we'll develop a formula to use.


We are wrapping up our life science unit and will begin learning about sound towards the end of the month.

Social Studies

We will continue to learn about the Western Hemisphere, specifically the government and rights of citizens.
