Fifth Grade Teachers
Ms. FountainMrs. Comstock
In fifth grade, we use the workshop model in many subject areas. We incorporate the Thinking Strategies into everything we do!
In math we cover volume, multi-digit multiplication and division, decimals, fractions, convert measurement, and classify shapes.
Our Reader's Workshop gives agency and choice with conferring each day. We also have a handful of novels that we read as a whole class, which expose us to a variety of genres.
We write every day! Our major pieces of writing are narrative, informational, persuasive and memoir.
We journey through history from the beginning of exploration all the way through the Revolutionary War. We also cover map skills and the 50 states and capitals.
Science takes us through explorations about the Earth and Sun, Mixtures and Solutions, and Living Systems.
