LANGUAGE ARTS is designed to invite young learners to a variety of grammar and writing skills that are always integrated in all subject areas. The primary goal in language arts is to develop life-long writers and readers that can effectively express and communicate ideas. For this instruction to be workable, students will be guided through the basic grammar function, functional vocabulary words, and basic writing forms in which the writing process will be applied to essay writing.
Our focus this year in Social Studies is the United States. We are starting the year in the section titled "American People, American Land" which gives an overview of the nation. Later, we will learn the history of this country starting with the people who explored the world and discovered America.In addition, students in grade 5 will understand the impact of geography on the early colonists. Also, a close examination of the evolution of the rights of American citizens, and global local issues of equity. We will explore the causes of both the Revolutionary War and Civil War. Collaboration among pupils is emphasized as technology is used for research and projects as we emphasize the responsibilities of a democratic nation. Tests and portfolio evaluation will be used to track a students progress.
