Grade 5

Rebecca MacPherson

Welcome to fifth grade! Here at Danbury Elementary, we have been off to a fantastic start this year. As a class, we have been getting to know each other better and exploring all kinds of new information.

In math, we are currently learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide by decimals all the way into the thousandths place value. We have been using money a lot in order to show how what we are learning in class can relate outside of our classroom.

In ELA, we have been exploring all different kinds of fifth grade text from informational text about the transcontinental railroad to fun tall tales about thunder. We have also just begun a fictional writing unit where we are creating books to read to the younger students in our school. Check back to see the books that we have created as a class.
