Note: There may be changes to assessments, like the DRA when we are in remote instruction.

  • Writing 


    Students will be moving through three genres of writing in 5th grade; narrative, espository, and persuasive. Embedded within our writing, will be a focus on increased use of mature vocabulary, as well as proper grammar protocol.




    Students will be independently reading in class according to their DRA reading level. DRA levels will be tested in the fall, winter, and spring. Students will choose novels that they wish to read that coincide with their reading level, and students will be responsible for tracking various objectives taught into their reading notebook as they move through the material.
