5th Grade ELA & Writing
5th Grade ELA
What's unique about our program is that we meet for two class periods. This allows more time for additional reading and writing practice, group work, and creative activities.
Homework assignments will reinforce and supplement learning that takes places in the classroom. Practice increases confidence in your child's abilities, which often leads to motivation and success. Homework assignments will help students gain a greater understanding of the subject and helps me to evaluate whether your child is grasping important concepts taught in class.
Daily homework will be assigned and will be posted in the "homework" section of my website. However, students will be strongly encouraged to complete their work at school.
Students should be reading for at least 15 minutes every night.
Students will be graded using a point system.
A breakdown of the grade they will receive on 5-week reports and report cards is as follows:
Comprehension - 30% of their grade
Writing - 30% of their grade
Grammar - 10% of their grade
Vocabulary - 10% of their grade
Homework - 10% of their grade
Spelling - 10% of their grade
