READING AND WRITING BY MRS. STRATTON
In fifth grade we participate in whole group novel studies. We be reading 5 different books that connect with specific themes throughout the year. Throughout each novel study students will be learning specific focus skills established in the StoryTown curriculum.
Throughout each novel study, 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 writing will be graded using the rubric link below. 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.
