5th Grade Teachers are involving students in a number of activities to improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
There are a number of listening/writing activities we are sharing to prepare for the Riverside Tests.
Children get a variety of opportunities to speak both formally and informally in the 5th grade classroom.
Books currently being read in 5th grade:
Mrs. Bowers/ Mr. Morgan - Harriet the Spy
Mrs. Guardino - Maniac Magee
Mrs. Beattie - Ella Enchanted
Mr. DeMarco/ Ms. Hunter - Save Queen of Sheba,
We are all trying to improve our students' ability to write three paragraph essays.
