Language Arts


5th graders read a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts through reading lessons. Each week explores a theme, genre study, or author study through the use of interactive read alouds. These highly engaging texts help students to build comprehension skills needed for our book clubs and independent reading. 


5th graders participate in Writing Workshop.  This workshop model provides students with opportunities to write all different types of writing.  We will be focusing on opinion, argument and narrative writing which correlates with the new Common Core Standards.
