During the month of September, Fifth Graders will be working on their public
speaking skills by giving a series of speeches to their classmates.
In October, November and December, Fifth Graders will be working to improve
their writing skills. They will be writing a series of five paragraph essays
that will focus especially closely on further developing their paragraph writing
skills as well as improving proofreading and editing skills.
They will also learn how to better use Microsoft Word software as well as the
graphic organizing software called Inspiration.
In January, February and March, Fifth graders will be learning how to use
Microsoft Powerpoint. We will be using our state report information to create
slide show presentations.
