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. The social studies curriculum is "My Place in Time and Space." The focus is on strengthening geography skills and learning how to analyze primary sources while learning about history. In science, we lead explorations into the fields of biology, chemistry, earth science, and physics.  We also focus on developing strong computer skills.
