Fifth Grade Updates

See what happened in Fifth Grade this month.

June Monthly Update 2019

 

Math 5 and 6- Students will review concepts taught throughout this year and get a jumpstart on new material to prepare for the next year of math instruction.  Students will be navigating different mathematical concepts through a variety of ways to exercise their flexible thinking.

 

Science -  We will continue our study of plant and animal cells using tools for magnification (hand lenses and compound light microscopes) to observe and analyze samples.

Social Studies & Language Arts– Fifth graders will study the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in preparation for our Renaissance Faire Day.  In language arts, we will continue our exploration of poetry which will culminate in the fifth grade tradition of performing Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.  All classes will prepare performances for parents in June. This is a favorite fifth grade tradition at Wolftrap, and we hope to see all families there!

Reading- Get ready for summer reading.  Through a librarian visit, classes will be exploring options for summer reading at Patrick Henry Library in Vienna.
