Dear fifth grade students and parents,
It's hard to believe that February and March flew by as quickly as they did! This will be a busy month in fifth grade as students begin preparing for the upcoming SOLs in mid May. During fourth quarter in language arts the students will continue to work on their reading and comprehension skills, practice with the various steps of the writing process to help strengthen the composition of their writing, and continue building their vocabulary through our word study units. In math, the students will finish learning about fractions and learn all about geometry and measurement. During Social Studies the students will finish learning about the Sothwest region of the United States and learn about the Rocky Mountain region. For science the students will finish learning about classification of living organisms and will begin learning about atoms and elements.
