Fifth Grade


(10 years)

The Fifth Graders day is traditionally organized to include science, social studies, reading, math, art, music, and physical education, yet we continue to stress a hands-on, concrete approach, individual observation and discovery, and the use of original or personally created materials. The Encore Math  common core program for math is used in the classroom as well as the Pearson Interactive Science. We also use the NYSED program for our English Language Arts program.
