General Information about 5th Grade

Our main focus in fifth grade is for students to develop an Independent Reading Life. Students are expected to ready everyday for extended period of time both at home and school to build reading stamina. In the same way a long-distance athlete needs to develop stamina for running, our fifth graders need to build reading stamina, especially when they complete the End-of-Grade tests. Apart from testing, being able to read for long periods of time will be a strength in middle school and eventually the workplace. 

Durning writing, we will focus on a variety of genres including essays, poetry, memoirs, historical fiction, and research pieces. Our new curriculum, Common Core, places a high emphasis on grammar, therefore students will have to demonstrate command of the conventions of Standard English grammar, as well as capitalization and punctuation.

It is important to realize that the math instruction your child receive today may be very different from the instruction we received in our own school experience. Our classrooms have transformed into math communities where instruction is richer in problem solving, reasonings, communication, and making mathematical connections with the real world

Your child will be introduced to a variety of strategies, by the teacher as well as peers, of which many may seem strange to you. Through number talks we encourage our students to approach math problems in a variety of ways. It is up the student to select the method that works best for them. 

Fifth Grade Science Units
1) Ecosystems
2) Forces and Genetics
3) Weather
4) Matter and Energy
5) Systems of the Body

Social Studies
We will study the geography, history, governments, and cultures of North America (The United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean). We are committed to help prepare a new generation for  leadership in the global marketplace.

As well as following all school rules, it is very important that each child do his or her best to contribute to a positive classroom environment. Rewards for good behavior will be given as well as consequences for inappropriate behavior. You will be informed of any behavior by either a note in the agenda, and/or a phone call. Every child has the right to an education and no one should be denied his or her right to learn. By encouraging you child to behave in a positive and respectful manner, we can ensure a positive learning experience for all.

Homework is assigned on a daily basis as an extension of the skills taught in class that day. It is very important that your child do his or her homework nightly. Your child will be required to write his or her assignments in the agenda daily. This will help keep you informed of what he or she has for homework. Homework is due the following school day unless otherwise noted. If it is not turned in on the next school day, they may bring it in the following school day with a 10-point reduction on that assignment. If it is still not turned in, their grade will be mark incomplete until the assignment is completed. 

Signed Test and Signed Papers
Tests will be given on a regular basis. The will be sent home to be signed and should be returned within the next two school days. Paper will be sent home periodically in the front pocket for you to look over. 

We hope this gives you an idea for the year. As you can tell the agenda is or main form of quick communication , so please make sure it accompanies your child each day. We are here for you and your child. We are looking forward to a very rewarding and exciting year. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
