Our English and Language Arts (ELA) block will consist of reading, language arts, grammar, and word study. We will use novels, long and short term project based learning, published writing works, and other methods to accomplish our ELA goals this year. In fifth grade, you will be expected to read every day. For some that might be difficult at first. See me; I have some ideas to help you learn to love reading!
The most important thing that you can do this year is to keep up with your work! If you get behind, it will be very difficult to catch up. Please see me before this happens. We can work together to help you make a plan for success.
