Welcome to Miss Tangredi and Miss Gilmartin’s Class Page!

 

Welcome to 5th Grade!

We are so excited to meet all of you!

 

Your child will engage in many new and exciting topics this year!

Science: 

We will engage in the Project the Lead Way units: Inputs and Outputs of the Human Brain, Robotics, and Infectious Diseases.

Math:

We will be extending their knowledge about place value, multiplications and division, area and fractions.  They will be diving into the world of decimals, volume and coordinate geometry.

Social Studies:

The students will learn about geography, government, ancient civilizations(Maya, Aztec and Inca) and cultures of the Western Hemisphere.

Reading: 

The students will explore narrative and informational texts to dig deeper into literal, interpretative, and analytical aspects of the texts. The students will work in genre book clubs to collaborate with their peers as a way to extend their own analysis of a text.

Writing:

The students will engage in narrative, informational, and opinion writing. They will work through each part of the writing process to grow their ideas into completed writing pieces.

Spelling:

The students will engage in the Words Their Way spelling program. This developmental spelling program will target their individualized spelling needs through word sorts, word hunts, and sentence building.

Please check out the School Supply List Page on the 5th grade page.

See you in September!
