Stamford and State Grade Level Expectations



Realistic Fiction. The purpose of this Realistic Fiction unit is to have students read and think critically about the characteristics of realistic fiction stories. As a summative assessment, students will write a realistic fiction story that demonstrates their understanding of the characteristics of realistic fiction. The targeted Common Core Standards in this unit cover reading, writing, speaking, and listening.




Unit 2 Whole Number Place Value and Operations. In this unit, students explore patterns in the base-10 place-value system and ways of representing large numbers. They apply their understanding of place value when estimating and computing with multidigit whole numbers. Students are introduced to U.S. traditional multiplication and review partial-quotients division.


Science :

Solar Energy. The Solar Energy Module consists of four investigations that allow students to experience solar energy firsthand and to investigate the variables that affect solar-energy transfer.

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.
