In 5th grade, students learn to identify an author’s purpose, views, and beliefs. They continue to develop vocabulary through the study of literature and learn to use various forms of writing, including poetry, research, and open-ended responses. Handwriting, spelling, grammar, and mechanics continue to be part of the language arts curriculum. In math, students expand their mastery of addition and subtraction with fractions and develop an understanding of multiplication and division of fractions. They also develop an understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths and learn about volume. In social studies, students explore Chinese history and culture. In science, students learn about plants, ecosystems, states of matter, and weather.
