Stamford and State Grade Level Expectations

Literacy

 

During May we will begin our fantasy unit and author study on Roald Dahl. We will study his craft and read a book together with the class. At the end of the unit, we will take what we learned and create our very own fantasies.

 

Math

Unit 11 in Everyday Math reviews properties of 3- dimensional shapes and then develops formulas for the volume of prisms and cylinders.

 

Science

This month we  are studying light. We will do various experiments using lasers, flashlights, and other hands on manipulatives. We will also learn the parts of the eye and learn about how we see.

 

Social Studies:

In Social Studies this month, we will continue learning about Westward Expansion and the challenges that the Corps of Discovery encountered on their Journey West. Later, we will learn about the pioneers and The Transcontinental Railroad.

Homework

Although each homework assignment is different, we do have similar expectations for all fifth grade work.  We ask that the students always write both their first and last names, as well as today's date on each assignment.

Of course, students should also be sure to proofread their work after they have completed it.  Proofreading includes first reading over the work to be sure it makes sense and says what you want it to say.  Then, students should check for proper spelling and grammar, especially use of capital letters and punctuation at the end of sentences.  It is so important to show your best work at all times.

At this point, students should be able to do most of their homework independently or with a small amount of assistance.  Parents, we ask you to please check that your child has finished his/her homework, and sign the agenda book each evening.  there is also a space for notes to the teacher if you should need to let us know something.

We thank you for your support in the monitoring of homework.
