2  The 5 th grade Language Arts curriculum emphasizes Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary, Grammar, Spelling and Writing.  We will explore many topics through daily reading and writing practice, stories, poetry, technology, activities, songs, and projects.

3 Students will participate in literature circles this year. They will be learning to read a book at home on their own, and preparing to participate in a group discussion at school.  Fill out a journal or worksheet with their assigned role.  Share their thoughts and questions with a small group once a week.  Read a set amount of pages a week/night.

4 Students will have a spelling test each week. They will take a pre-test on the first day of the week and will test on the last day in that week.  They will be asked to bring their pre-test home.  They will be tested on 10 words each week.  Students will also receive a grade for spelling on writing assignments.

5 Writing Notebook Fluency Strategies Expanding Topics Sharing their Writing Strategies for Editing th Grade Writing Writer’s Workshop Students need a spiral notebook every day in class to complete these activities!

6  Students will be graded in the following areas: ◦ Class work/Homework ◦ Writing Exercises ◦ Quizzes ◦ Tests ◦ Responsibility (parent signature, textbook covered, etc.) ◦ Assignment Book (1 st hour teacher)  I will do my best to update grades as quickly as possible!

7 Homework Policy All assigned work must be completed and handed in ON TIME to receive full credit. Late Work: Oops! Mistakes and emergencies happen, so each student will be allowed one late assignment coupon per trimester. This coupon allows a student to turn in a completed assignment late, to receive full credit. After this coupon has been used, all further late assignments will be worth half credit. Make-up Work Policy As stated in the HMS handbook, students will have 2 days for every day absent to make up their work (2 days absent = 4 days to complete work) After this amount of time the late work policy goes into effect. **If your child is going to be absent for a planned event (vacation, doctor) try to let me know and I can get work out to you in advance.

8 GRADES Responsibility: participation, planner, sign & returns, book covered, etc. Homework: includes daily class work and work assigned to be done at home. Assessment: Spelling tests each week; Mid-Unit and End-Unit Assessments every two to three weeks. HOMEWORK/DAILY WORK : Please check your child’s planner for any homework that is given on a daily basis. You can also find homework listed on our classroom webpage.

9 There are many things you can do to support your child’s success: ◦ Sign the assignment book each night ◦ Create good study habits ◦ Check SchoolView ◦ Guide homework; read each night ◦ Study Spelling and Vocabulary words
