Fifth Grade Literacy

Reading this year will include guided and independent reading at each student’s reading level. Students are expected to keep a Reader’s Notebook where they share their thoughts and feeling about their reading. 

Students will work through the writing process with different pieces throughout the year, including narrative, persuasive, and informational writing. Their Seed Notebook is an important tool for gatherings ideas for future writing pieces.  Students practice the 6 traits of writing: ideas, organization, voice, word choice, conventions, and sentence fluency.
