What we learn
4th and 5th Grade by the Standards
All students receive instruction where they are at as learners. What that means is most learners will be performing math and reading activities at grade level. In mathematics I will teach two lessons each day. Students pre-test at the start of each unit. If they master a lower grade level they will be challenged at the higher grade.
Reading is taught using both 4th and 5th grade reading materials. The students meet learning targets by reading articles and novels. This reading is supported by Accelerated Reader and Lexia computer programs.
Science and social studies are taught through reading and doing. In school years beginning with an odd number (like 2017) 5th grade standards are taught. In even years, 4th grade standards are taught. So, students who are with me for 2 years will cover all the required content.
