    Communications:  The 5th grade reading anthology, Pearson Scott Foresman Reading Street, consists of a variety of fiction and non fiction reading selections.  Included in our weekly readings are the spelling words and grammar activities. Each theme also includes a Reading-Writing Workshop and leveled readers.  Throughout the school year we enhance our curriculum by assigning a variety of book projects and novel studies.

    Mathematics:  Our district's curriculum is Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's Math Expressions.  This program provides students with a daily workbook for classroom lessons, follow-up practice, and an online resource for parents and students.  We also incorporate daily word problems and technology to enhance students' mathematical skills. 

    Social Studies:  Fifth graders study American History from Native Americans through the Civil War. Students enjoy researching famous explorers and creating dodecahedrons. 

    Science/Health:  Topics we study in 5th grade are: 

    • Earth's Changing Surface
    • Ecosystems
    • Forces in Motion
    • PEAK- Police Educating Area Kids
