Fifth Grade Has Been Hard at Work!

Our fifth graders have been working hard, and it’s apparent from the work displayed in the hallways and classrooms of our school.  Here’s some of what they’ve been learning:

Students in the DL classes in read the book Esperanza Rising.  Read what a 5th grade student wrote about it here:  Esperanza Rising.

In language arts, students developed an understanding of timelines by making a personal timeline of their own life.  This supports their understanding of informational text and meets this state objective:  We can recognize characteristics and structures of informational text, including features such as insets, timelines, and sidebars.











In science, students continue to learn specific vocabulary so that they can communicate about scientific topics.
