Exploring Good Writing – 5th Grade

This is just a summary of what I hope to cover each quarter, subject to change based on the abilities of specific students in the class and the pacing of the subject lessons as they are happening.

Specific hours may be subject to change! Mondays and Wednesdays.  Off during holidays that fall on a Monday.

5th grade – 10:15am-11:30am

Reading assignments will coincide with Exploring The Eastern Hemisphere.  Do not panic!  Upon confirmation of your child’s enrollment, you will receive an email not only confirming your child’s seat in the class that quarter but also be given a list of books your child can read (pick one!).

We have a lot of different skills to tackle in order to bring a 5th grader from writing in Elementary School to being successful in Middle School, so we will be working on:

  • Latin
  • Grammar
  • Vocabulary
  • Short writing assignments
  • Multiple paragraph essays
  • Using a Student Planner
  • Poetry

Supplies are a 3 ring binder with 5 tabs exclusively for this subject, a composition notebook (can be the same as the one for Social Studies), a student planner, lined paper and a PEN.  We will write exclusively in pen to get comfortable with editing.

I look forward to Exploring Language Arts with you!

Registration is open for the 2019-2020 school year.
