Welcome to 5th Grade!
In ELA, we follow the New York State curriculum modules which are designed to address CCSS ELA outcomes during our ELA block. The overall focus is to build on students' literacy skills as they develop knowledge about the world. The modules are broken into shorter units, and include assessments in relation to: independent work on reading, writing, speaking, or listening. There are six modules per grade level, beginning with Module 1:Becoming a close reader and writing to learn, titled "Stories of Human Rights."
In Math, we follow the New York State curriculum modules which are designed to address CCSS Math outcomes. "Fifth grade mathematics is about (1) developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions, and developing understanding of the multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions in limited cases (unit fractions divided by whole numbers and whole numbers divided by unit fractions); (2) extending division to two-digit divisors, integrating decimal fractions into the place value system and developing understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths, and developing fluency with whole number and decimal operations; and (3) developing the understanding of volume."
Module 1, Place Value and Decimal Fractions, is the sole module used at this time and will be used along with our current My Math Program. My Math is used for instruction of the remaining topics.
Class Dojo is used to reinforce positive behavior. Parents are encouraged to sign up so they may continue to be informed about their child's day.
