English Language Arts: (condensed from the National PTA Parent Guide to Student Success)
In 5th grade, students read widely and deeply from a range of high-quality, increasingly challenging fiction and nonfiction from diverse cultures and time periods. Building knowledge about subjects through research projects and responding analytically to literary and informational sources are key. Students write stories or essays that are several paragraphs long. By devoting significant time and effort to producing numerous written pieces over short and extended timeframes throughout the year, they also will gain control over many conventions of grammar, usage, and punctuation.
