Curriculum for Fifth Grade

 

   

 Welcome! Our class will be on its way experiencing our learning. We have been establishing our daily routines and getting involved with interacting with our learning styles and sharing our thinking. We will be writing in our logs daily to keep track of our vocabulary, experiences, and thoughts.

 

Social Studies

It is great to be a fifth grader as we will be learning about the original thirteen colonies and the road to American independence. We are also learning the geography of the US states and capitals. This week we will start the next five states 11-15.

 

 

Reading

We will read stories. We are reading a new story from our text using the timeline of our curriculum. We are developing our reading strategies to make ourselves better readers. We visit the library at school each Friday. This unit, we are answering the Essential Question of " What does it take to put a plan into action?"

We will be working on the parts of speech. We will continue learning meanings of prefixes and suffixes. We will develop ideas in using tables and charts. Specific spelling rules will be coming shortly. Watch for the list of words to come home on Monday! We are also develping writing strategies from our new series. Daily writing is a focus for us.In spelling this week, we will bw working on closed syllables. In Grammar, we will work on prepositional phrases.

Mathematics

 

We will be developing number sense strategies while continuing to develop more speed and accuracy of our basic facts. Fractions, percentages, and decimal numbers will be emphasized in the next months. Our students are writing a "How To" section in their binders to explain how they solve problems and new concepts. This week we will begin working with fractions: adding and subtracting.
