Welcome to 5th Grade

All About 5th Grade

  • Welcome to 5th grade! This year you will continue to further your abilities in reading comprehension and fluency as you work in your guided reading group to end the year on a Level V. In writing, you will gain understanding of compound-complex sentences, the use of semicolons, and writing evidence based paragraphs and multi-paragraph pieces. Math will bring with it a deeper understanding of decimals, fractions, measurement, and word problems. You'll forge ahead as you gain more knowledge of life, physical, and earth sciences. Lastly, you'll trace the history of the US after the Civil War to present day while also learning about our government, citizens' rights, and our Constitution. We can't wait to see what you'll be able to accomplish this year as you embark on your final year of elementary school and prepare for middle school and beyond.
