5th grade is an important year during which our children learn to transition from elementary school to middle school. Our mornings consist of our math, reading, and writing blocks as these are the foundations on which most of our education rests. During the afternoons, we switch to social studies, science, and spelling/grammar. All of our blocks include direct instruction, independent work time, small group intervention, and centers. Students learn how to take notes by utilizing interactive notebooks which helps prepare them for independent note taking in the coming years.
5th grade is also an exciting year because the students have the opportunity to participate in many clubs. Specifically, this is the first year that students are able to join Kindness Crew, Service Squad, Safety Patrol, and Yearbook. The students are also given monthly jobs for which they can earn “class cash” and spend their money every two weeks in our class store.
