In fifth grade ELA, we will read a variety of texts, including historical fiction, informational texts, myths, legends, poetry, dramatic texts, and many more! We will write for various audiences, edit and revise writing, and focus on voice, organization, fluency, and conventions. Students will develop vocabulary and word analysis skills. We will also spend time gathering information and researching topics relevant to students' lives. 

Reading takes you places!
