Welcome to the 5th Grade Teacher page
Fifth Grade is part of our upper school at St. Rose of Lima. Students utilize writing across the curriculum as well as technology in all content areas. Internet safety and using the world wide web appropriately is important as we prepare our students for the future. STREAM activities span the subjects as the students utilize their skills and apply them, often overlapping them to demonstrate their knowledge.The fifth-grade religion curriculum focuses on the seven sacraments as well as a deeper understanding of the Mass. Service opportunities and prayer are applied to real-world issues. Leading opportunities for reading and proclaiming the "Word" at Mass prepares students as they grow more fully into the Church and gain confidence in speaking. Math, science, and social studies require more reading, writing, and providing evidence to demonstrate knowledge in these contents. Students need to write in various styles and reading and understanding non-fiction text is essential.
