 READING / ELA 

Welcome to the Fifth Grade Language Arts!

 

This year we will be taking on exciting content areas in both literature and informational text while emboldening our skills as both an author and critical reader.  We will learn to go deeper, beyond the surface level of the text to learn from our favorite writers.  We begin that work with a first quarter study of the Adventure genre.  We will be reading a tantalizing tale "Fearless" by Elvira Woodruff as we continue to explore the role that the story arch, or plot diagram, plays in mapping out successful stories.  From here we will begin to ask deeper questions pertaining to character change and theme as we analyze classic stories in our Tall Tale study.  Lastly, we will learn to connect the dots between both literature and informational text as we map the plot diagram of some of history's favorite tales, such as the heroics of those involved in the Revolutionary War!
