5th Graders read Achieve3000 articles and complete the corresponding activity each week for homework. Two weekly activities must be completed with 75% accuracy. Sometimes articles will be free choice, while other times articles will be assigned to align with current topics and concepts being taught across the 5th Grade Curriculum.
To grow as a writer, it is important to write for different purposes over extended periods of time. Each week, students will have the week to complete a writing task to be completed and submitted in the Google Classroom. Submissions should reflect time and effort taken to work through the steps of the writing process.
In addition to weekly assignments, students may also have nightly assignments in the areas of reading, vocabulary, or applications in grammar. Nightly homework can be checked on the calendar located under the homework section of this webpage as well as in students' planners.
