Our main goal in 5th grade Reading is to learn to love Reading!! As we achieve this goal, students also become proficient in all areas of the Reading/LA curriculum by exploring various literary genres and by participating in dramatic productions, student-led book clubs, engaging projects, and-for the first time ever- a fifth grade website! Remember, Reading is the one subject where success translates into success in all other subjects!
Technology is another vital part of the 5th grade curriculum. Students regularly use laptops and iPads as research, writing, and learning application tools and become skilled in determining appropriate, reliable sites to use in any educational endeavor. Our Accelerated Reader program encourages students to READ, READ, READ by incorporating numerous rewards- lunch and a movie, lunch with a friend, special snacks, monthly free book drawings, and much, much more!
