Home Students Classroom Pages Grade 5 - Mrs. Viola Welcome to 5th Grade!

Welcome to 5th Grade!

Welcome back to school! I am very excited for the 2017-2018 school year! Here is an overview of what we will be doing throughout the school year!


In Reading, we will begin our school year focusing on our summer reading: Number the Stars. As a class we will be discussing characters, setting, plot, and so much more! Throughout the school year, we will also further our learning of genres by using our Reading Street series as well as completing monthly Book Reports. The theme for September's book report is animals. The students will receive the instructions the first week of school and it will be due September 27th!


Each week we will have a Spelling Test! We use SpellingCity.com so I encourage everyone to explore the website and become familiar with all of the resources that are available. It is a great studying tool!


In Religion, we will begin the year with learning about the Seven Sacraments. Throughout the school year we will also be focusing on Holy Days, and important Religious figures.


In English, we will further our learning of the different parts of Speech: Nouns, Pronouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Avderbs, Interjections, and Conjunctions. Our class will also have a strong focus on writing and learning how to compose different writing pieces such as Descriptive Essays, Narratives, Expository Essays, and Research Reports. The students will also have writing journals where they will be able to express their thoughts and feelings through writing prompts or a specific topic that is given to them. I am looking forward to a great year in English!
