Grade 5 ELA/ Social Studies
This year, we will begin with Unit 1 in Reading Street. These stories are all about adventurers and building courage. Fifth graders will write a variety of open responses, opinion pieces, and narratives. Also, we will be starting our first class novel, Hatchet, which is full of adventure.
In Social Studies, we begin with geography and how to read maps. We will then be studying the ancient civilizations!
Please remember to initial your child's agenda book to record their independent reading.
