Welcome to Fifth Grade! I am excited to get to know you and be a part of your learning adventure. This year, we will be focused on integrating C5W (Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creativity, Citizenship, and Wellness) as we explore our studies building all-century learners. Problem Based Learning, STEM tasks, and the use of various technology will enable students to analyze, problem solve, create, and reflect on their thinking to better prepare them for middle school and beyond.
We will have blocks dedicated for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies as well as time built in for Encore classes, recess, and lunch. You can expect a lot of reading, writing, problem solving. and FUN during this last year of your elementary school experience. Fifth graders will be well prepared to take the English, Mathematics, and Science SOL (Standards of Learning) state assessments at the end of the year.
We look forward to an amazing year!
