Literacy:

In 5th grade we READ, READ, READ!! We not only read for fun, but we read to learn. My expectation is that you are reading at home. You can read to yourself, read to a family member, a friend, or even to a pet! Great readers practice all the time! Please feel free to email me if you need a good book recommendation!

Here are some of my favorite reading websites! Some of them are websites where you can find reading material and some websites will read aloud stories so that you can enjoy listening to stories!

Writing:

Writing is one of my favorite times of the day! We will be learning about how to write personal narratives, publishing our own fiction story, sharing our opinions through writing, how to research and publish that research, we will be writing step by step instructions, and writing! Along with writing, we will be exploring literature that teaches us about specific types of writing! If you ever write a story in your spare time, please email them to me! Just like reading, the more you practice, the better writer you will be! My email address is knelson6@greeleyschools.org.

 

Social Studies/Science:

In 5th grade science, we will be learning about mixtures and solutions, organisms and structures of those organisms, earth resources, earth landforms, weather, and human growth and development. We will be busy in science doing experiments, going on virtual field trips, and doing lots of fun reading! 

In social studies, fifth graders will learn about the first Americans, the exploration that took place in North America, settlement in our country, life in the Colonies, the American Revolution, and how our country evolved into what it is today.
