READING AND WRITING BY MRS. STRATTON
In fifth grade we participate in the ARC reading program. We be reading 4 different books that connect with specific themes throughout the year. Throughout each theme students will be learning specific focus skills established in the ARC curriculum.
Students are required to read for at least 30 minutes each night at home. They should record their minutes on their reading log and be ready to turn them in each week with a parents signature.
Throughout each theme, students will be working on multiple writing projects. Students will follow the discussed writing process procedures to create a final writing project. At the beginning of each project students will be given a description of the requirements. Students will be given time to complete the projects in class, but if they need extra time to work on it they can take it home for homework.
