5th Grade is working on building academic vocabulary in all subject areas. We are currently studying the Maya, Aztecs and Inca civilizations for language arts. Next we will begin a unit on poetry and then we’ll be reading Don Quixote. In math we are building our place value understanding with decimals before studying two modules on fractions. For science we are studying Earth’s Systems and Earth’s natural resources. In social studies we are studying U.S. History from native groups and European explorers through the U.S. Constitution. Finally we are staying active by playing soccer, basketball, and kickball. We are also preparing ourselves for the Physical Fitness test this spring.
