Fifth Grade with Ms. Sanchez 

English Language Arts

The written and spoken word are fostered to promote the joy of reading and writing. Students are encouraged to express feelings, ideas, experiences, and questions clearly with purpose and tell stories in sequential order with understanding.

This is achieved through an integrative approach along these overarching topics:

  • Word Analysis, Fluency, and Systematic Vocabulary Development

  • Literary Response and Analysis

  • Genre Studies

  • The Writing Process

  • Written and Oral Writing Conventions

  • Listening and Speaking Strategies and Applications


Students develop a rich conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and real-world application of the following domains:

  • Number sense

  • Algebraic thinking

  • Measurement and geometry

  • Multiplication and division

  • Mathematical reasoning

Social Studies

Social studies systematically combines multiple fields of social science (i.e., history, government, economics, sociology, geography, and anthropology). Integrated thematic lessons expose students to all aspects of human society and demonstrate the interconnectedness of social relationships.

Focus areas:

  • Physical and Human Geography

  • The land and the first people
