Dear fifth grade students and parents,
It's hard to believe that we are almost halfway through second quarter, and the holidays are quickly approaching! During second 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. They will also begin writing multi-paragraph essays using the steps of the writing process. In math, the students will learn decimal place value and rounding as well as decimal/fraction equivalents and comparing and ordering both fractions and decimals. During Social Studies the students will finish learning about the southeast region of the United States and begin learning about the midwest region. For science the students will finish learning all about oceanography and begin learning about cells.
