In reading, the students will read from a variety of chapter books such as Crash by Jerry Spinally and Absolutely Normal Chaos by Sharon Creech.
Fifth grade continues to build important reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Students read more challenging literature, articles, and other sources of information to grow their vocabulary. Students understand and summarize what they have learned, supporting their points with evidence. Students continue to develop their ability to gather, organize, interpret, and present information.
