Writing

We can:

  • Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas
     and information clearly.

  • Introduce a topic clearly, provide a general observation and focus, and
    group related information logically; include formatting (e.g., headings),
    illustrations, and multimedia when useful to aiding comprehension.
  • Develop the topic with facts, definitions, concrete details, quotations,
    and other information and examples related to the topic.
  • Link ideas within and across categories of information using words,
    phrases, and clauses (eg., in contrast, especially).
  • Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using
    effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.
  • Use a variety of transitional words, phrases, and clauses to manage the
    sequence of events.
  • Use concrete words and phrases and sensory details to convey
    experiences and events precisely.
  • Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and
    organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
  • With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and
    strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or
    trying a new approach.
  • Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to inform about or explain the topic.
  • Provide a concluding statement or section related to the information or explanation provided.
  • Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.                                                                             
  • Conduct short research projects that use several sources to build knowledge through investigation of different aspects of a text.
  • Recall relevant information from experiences or gather relevant information from print and digital sources; summarize or paraphrase information in notes and finished work, and provide a list of resources.
  • Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
  • Apply grade 5 Reading standards to literature(eg. Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or story events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text.)

Math

​We can:

  • Recognize that in a multi-digit number, a digit in one place represents 10 times as much as it represents in the place to its right and 1/10 of what it represents in the place to its left.
  • Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths. Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form
  • Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and <, symbols to record the results of comparisons.
  • Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.
  • Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
