Welcome to 5th Grade at ICA!
5th Grade is an exciting time in a child’s educational journey. They are making the transition between elementary and middle school and my goal is to make that transition seamless.
Our day begins with a morning meeting. It’s a time to gather together for discussion and team-building activities. Then it’s off to our core curriculum! Religion focuses on the sacraments and the liturgy, with the highlight of the year: The Living Stations. Science explores everything from volcanoes and hurricanes to biomes and energy. We engage in as many experiments as possible to bring science to life. Social Studies takes a look at early American history from the natives to the Civil War. One highlight of our year is when students become Loyalists and Patriots and take part in key events of the Revolution! Language Arts consists of spelling, vocabulary, grammar, and writing. We take part in a writing workshop to hone our writing skills and get individualized instruction. Reading takes us to new times and places as we take on novel studies to strengthen our reading skills. When it comes to math, 5th Grade students have the opportunity to switch classes. They travel to Mrs. Bailey to learn more about fractions, decimals, geometry, and more!
5th Grade is more than just hitting the books. We play games to extend our learning and we utilize technology as much as possible. We take field trips to further our understanding of local history and science. We are also hard at work on becoming responsible citizens. We have classroom jobs and take care of our class pet, Draco. Our bearded dragon is 1 year old and loves to watch us during the day!
ICA offers our 5th Grade students a safe place to learn and grow. It is a place where they can use their faith in all aspects of love, learning, and leadership.
