What's Happening in 5th Grade

Reading

Students will read fiction text and describe how the character changes throughout the story and the plot of the story. Students will also be reading nonfiction text to find the main idea and supporting details.

Math

Students will round numbers to the nearest thousandth and determine the probability of a sample space. We will compare and order decimals and fractions.

Social Studies

We will learn about the features, resources, and states of the Northeast and Southeast. We will also compose letters from the point of view of immigrants fighting for working rights.

Writing

We will begin working on composing more powerful personal narrative stories using strategies we have previously learned as well as strategies we will be learning.

Science

We are looking inside the earth to learn how plate tectonics affect the earth’s crust, and the stages and products of the rock cycle. We are also reviewing 4th grade’s Natural Resources through our project presentations!

Reminders

Students will begin the D.A.R.E. program. Our first D.A.R.E. date s October 21. Please remind your child to charge their laptops every night. So far, the students have been doing a wonderful job with laptops. Thank you to the parents that attended Back-to-School Night. Conferences will be held at the end of October and November.
