Welcome back! It sure is going to be a great year! The fifth grade students cannot wait to enjoy all of their special privileges, starting with Safety Patrol. Look for the children in the orange belts each morning and afternoon to see our positive role models keeping the students of Knollwood safe.
Don’t worry, with all of these special privileges we are still extremely focused on learning and starting to prepare for our big entrance into Central Middle School.
The first novel we are reading in Language Arts is, Frindle, by Andrew Clements. We are also reviewing the different types of figurative language that will be used in our future writing pieces.
Math is everywhere! We are kicking off the year with place value and algebraic concepts. The fifth grade students will also sharpen their problem solving skills as we combat multi-step problems.
Have you ever felt like you were in outer space? We feel like that everyday in science as we explore the solar system and beyond. Our first science unit is out of this world!
It is an exciting year in social studies. We have started the year exploring geography. We are also following current events.
Fifth grade is in full force and we are looking forward to many of the exciting events at Knollwood School this year!
