January 2017 ~ What’s New in Fifth Grade? 


During the month of January, we will begin our in depth study on fractions.  We will learn to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators, including mixed numbers.  We will also solve word problems containing fractions.  Lastly, we will estimate fractions and use fractional models in our work.

In science, we will continue to learn and use the microscope.  We will conduct labs using the microscope and also learn to identify the many different parts. We will discuss cell theory and view many different types of slides.

In social studies, we will continue to discuss cultural diversity and use our novel Esperanza Rising to discuss the geographical setting and the plight of the characters in the book. We will also compare cultures around the world and note the similarities and differences in lifestyle, recreation and cuisine.

In ELA, we will begin our study on the rainforest.  We will read a non-fiction book, which focuses on a scientists study on the rainforest.  We will research the parts of the rainforest and the fauna and flora within the rainforest.
