Welcome to Fifth Grade!
During the fifth grade year, students are encouraged to work
independently and to develop a strong sense of responsibility. In math,
we place a strong emphasis on decimals, fractions, and geometry. In
language arts, we focus on strengthening reading comprehension skills
and the development of comprehensive writing skills. In social
studies, we focus primarily on Virginia history. In science, we lead
explorations into the fields of biology, chemistry, earth science, and
physics. We also focus on developing strong computer skills.
