Fifth Grade Curriculum Notes
Fifth grade is both a challenging and exciting year for students. A conceptual theme links each subject together so that learning can remain connected and meaningful for students.

Organization, study techniques, and setting goals are all skills that students work on continually throughout the year. Students are responsible for keeping their own assignment notebook, filing their own papers, developing time management skills, and planning and completing many projects. These skills are necessary for their success in middle school and are practiced daily in fifth grade.

Fifth grade students will continue to review basic skills as well as explore new concepts. Students will be involved with whole numbers, decimals, fractions, percentages, ratios, beginning algebra, and beginning geometry. Problem-solving is an important concept integrated throughout the year so that each student can become more independent both as an individual and as a group member to find solutions. Students will work with manipulatives to build concrete skills into abstract skills. Math journals are also used to reinforce vocabulary and note taking along with itslearning. Mastery of elementary math skills is an essential component of fifth grade so that students will be successful in future years.

Homework and class work will be accessible through itslearning. Students can access DreamBOX here.

Class news will be sent through Skyward.
