5th Grade is an exciting year for our students. They are being prepared to leave elementary and enter middle school. In math students learn how to solve problems with fractions, decimals, integers and all the skills necessary to succeed in pre-algebra. Students learn early American history in Social Studies. The focus in science is living organisms, weather, and the solar system. In Literature we read several novels throughout the year and also grow their understanding of informational texts. We celebrate our Catholic identity throughout all subjects especially in religion where we focus on the scriptures and prayer life. Our students have access to a Chromebook and we use many online resources including IXL, BrainPOP, and KAHOOT.
