English 5/6 | 5/6 gr | 2:05-3:35 | Elizabeth Breau | Fifth graders are preparing for middle school, and this class will use poetry, short fiction, and a variety of critical thinking exercises to challenge your student to advance to the next level! Students will read and discuss a wide variety of material while also using a rich, workbook-based curriculum that aligns to the Common Core. When writing, we will emphasize the steps of the writing process: brainstorming, outlining, drafting, peer review, and revision. Students will also complete independent research projects that require them to find and synthesize information from various sources. Weekly assignments will include grammar, vocabulary, and writing. Assessments will include vocabulary tests, grammar quizzes, and writing assignments that are designed to prepare students for PARCC as well as for the more advanced material they will be expected to master in middle school. |

Math 4A | 4 | 8:45-10:00 | Mary Marvin | Math 4A and 4B These classes are identical, that is they will follow the exact same program with the same homework each week. Students will move further into the topic of fractions, including adding and subtracting of mixed numbers, and with different denominators. Fraction multiplication will be introduced. There will be many word problems requiring understanding of these fraction concepts. Long division and multiplication will now include 3 and 4 digit numbers. Second semester will see the introduction of decimals and how they relate to fractions. And geometry will be developed further, with more complex problems on area and perimeter, and now volume of cubes and cuboids. Along with the heavy arithmetic program, students will study exciting topics to prepare them for Math Olympiads, which they’ll start taking this year for the first time. Topics like set theory, probability, logic, and combinatorics will be taught – yes, young kids can do these things, if taught at an age-appropriate level. Students should have a strong mastery of arithmetic through 3rd grade to succeed in this class.

Math 5 | 5 | 10:05-11:35 | Mary Marvin | Math 5 A comprehensive and intensive review of fractions and decimals will be conducted, so students are prepared to move into the harder arithmetic that follows. This will not be merely introductory or basics of fractions and decimals, but will deal with deep problems, both numerical and word problems using these concepts. When this has been mastered fully, students will move to percentages, ratios, and some introductory pre-algebra. Along with the rigorous arithmetic program, Olympiad and contest problems and topics will be included as a part of each lesson. Counting principles, finding probabilities, set theory, geometric problems are some of the topics we will study for the Olympiads. |
