About the Class
Fifth Grade is a truly exciting time! It is a time of learning more and taking on more responsibility. In our class, we will be covering Math, English, History, Science and Bible. The students will also be taking PE courses as well as Spanish, Computer, Art and Music outside of class.
Curriculum: Students will be challenged in all subjects through a professional and current curriculum. The curriculum will include Saxon Math, Open Court Reading, and Scott Foresman Science.
What are we going to be doing in class? : We will be learning the core subjects such as Math, Science, English and Bible. We will also be learning about how to read, write and present ideas in an organized structure. Finally, and most importantly, students will learn life lessons as they relate to the Bible and other topics. Students will not only learn the information, but, learn the “why” and the “how.”
Grading: The grading scale is an A-F scale (see student handbook for details). Students will be graded on not only if they answered correctly on a problem, but, if they truly put forth effort. For larger projects a rubric will be handed out to each student.
Homework: Homework will be given nightly in typically no more than 2 subjects (e.g. Math and History, etc.). This does not count long term assignments or projects or classwork that students did not complete in-class. Students at the Fifth Grade Level will have anywhere between 1 hour to an hour and a half of homework per evening as per standards.
Late Work: No late work will be accepted. Any late work will receive a ‘0’ in the grade book. If your student is sick or you and your student are planning to be on vacation please email me so we can make arrangements prior to returning to school.
Rules: 1. Come to class on time and ready to learn. 2. Pay attention and be respectful to the teacher and each other. 3. Follow all directions. 4. Do you work and turn it in on time.5. Be respectful and participate always and often. Please follow your student’s progress on classroom dojo.
Projects: All projects given will be given with significant advanced notice. Book reports will have at least 1 month or more advanced notice prior to a due date. Each project that will need to be worked on at home will come with clear and concise directions and instruction, and I will be available for questions.
