Great Expectations: Partnering for Your Child’s Future

Fifth Grade

Our fifth grade students are learning much more than to read, write, do math, and understand key concepts in science and social studies.

Library and Research: By the end of the year, fifth grade students can use sources to gather background information; write good research questions; find information using print, electronic, and human resources; take different kinds of notes (for example, written and electronic); form an opinion and back it up with evidence; revise their work based on feedback from others; draw conclusions about the theme of a story; and follow safety procedures when using the Internet.
