Welcome to Ms. Romero's Fifth Grade Class!

Social Studies students in the fifth grade will have an opportunity this year to look at the world community and develop a global perspective. Through the study of history and government, map skills, and integration with their other subjects, students will develop an understanding and an appreciation of all God's people. The world will be studied through the seven continents. The students should be able to integrate writing skills into the curriculum, as well as making links to other curriculum areas.
 
Fifth grade students will recognize and apply the integration of language arts daily. Skills will be modeled by the teacher and practiced by the student. Students will increase reading fluency and comprehension and further develop writing skills.
 
The fifth grade Math curriculum is based on the skills introduced and mastered in Kindergarten through fourth
grades, which spiral to the fifth grade level. Rising fifth graders should have mastered: 1) Addition/Subtraction of
whole numbers, decimals and fractions; 2) Multiplication of three-digit whole numbers and decimals x whole
numbers. Emphasis is placed on the following skills:
- Add, subtract, multiply and divide whole numbers with place values to the ten thousands (divisors to the hundreds);
- Add, subtract, multiply and divide decimals with place values to the thousandths;
- Add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions and mixed numbers, expressing answers in simplest form;
- Multiply and divide mentally by 10, 100, and 1,000
- Compare and convert among fractions, decimals, and percentages;
- Multiply two decimals to the thousandths place;
- Find and use the mean, median, mode and range of a given set of numbers
