2
Fifth Grade Curriculum
3
English Language Arts
  • Lead 21- A reading and writing that connects
    students writing with great works of literature.
    Many of the sessions connect the lesson objective
    with an example from a published piece of reading
    and writing.
  • The students will be involved in reading groups
    and will be exposed to various genres of reading.
  • The students will take the New York State ELA
    Assessment on May 17th 18th.

4
Everyday Math
  • The students will be learning about estimation,
    geometry, algebra, area, volume, capacity,
    computation, fractions, decimals, percents, and
    probability.
  • Your children will take the New York State Math
    Assessment on May 23rd and 24th.
  • Students should transport their Student Reference
    Book to and from school each day.
  • I have included the family letter in your packet
    tonight.

5
Social Studies
  • Students will be discussing the history,
    geography, economy and politics of Canada, the US
    and Latin America.
  • New York State has cancelled the 5th grade state
    assessment this year, but Frontier has decided to
    give their own assessment in November.

Science and Health
  • The students will be actively engaged in the
    following science kits Meet the Creatures,
    Electromagnetism and Ecosystems.
  • The students will take classes on life skills
    through Western New York United.

Highlights
8
Homework Policy
  • The students will receive homework nightly. (ie.
    study link, social studies terms etc.)
  • All of their homework assignments are listed on
    the agenda board in the front of the room.
    Students receive ample time to fill out their
    agenda. It is a great form of communication
    between teacher and parents.
  • If a family emergency presents itself and
    prevents your child from completing homework,
    simply call or write. (athletic schedules are
    not an excuse)

9
Attendance
  • The district emphasizes the importance of school
    attendance and that appointments should be
    scheduled after school hours when possible.
  • Parents must notify the school when their child
    is absent and an excuse must be sent when the
    child returns to school.
  • All missed work will be placed in the childs
    mailbox.

10
Snacks
  • The 5th grade students have an early lunch,
    therefore an afternoon snack is encouraged. It
    must be nutritious. (fruits, vegetables,
    pretzels etc.)
