Mrs. Ann Reid
5th Grade Teacher/Assistant Principal
Welcome to the 5th Grade page!
Throughout the school year we explore many new concepts while continuing to build on the basic building blocks. Students begin to move past rote memorization and really get their brains working with our fun and intense curriculum. The Apostles Creed is our focus in Religion and we will learn how to more faithfully live our faith daily. We also learn about the Sacraments and finish the year with a visit to the church to learn about the sacred vessels and vestments. Math skills start with large number multiplication and division skills. As we move through the year we learn about fractions, decimals, and even have an introduction to Algebra.
The 5th grade students hone their reading skills with various types of literature, as well as increase their vocabularies and grammar skills with activities throughout the day. We also work on writing skills with journal writing, learning to take notes in class, stories and even report writing.
A highlight of our year is the Living Wax Museum project- students will take on the persona of a person learned about during our Social Studies journey around the world!
