5th Grade

  • In 5th Grade, students will be exposed to various forms of literature in our Amplify Reading Program.  Story vocabulary, essential reading skills, and complimentary writing skills will be modeled and instructed.  Students will develop reading strategies that will increase reading fluency and reading comprehension.  Students will increase writing skills as they brainstorm topics, create rough drafts, edit pieces, and then publish work.

    In Social Studies, students will study the past in the United States as we look at key points in our nation's history.  We explore our Constitution, and focus on key map skills, as well as National Holidays and Historic Events.
