Topics of Study


We are currently reading the mystery novel, When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. Students are engaged in discussions regarding the mysterious notes left for Miranda as well as applying our reading strategies to build our reading muscles.

Students are working on their fifth grade memoirs. Students reflect back on their time here at Lyncrest from grades K-5 and compose an essay including all their favorite memories. Students are also finishing our Poetry Unit by creating a booklet of various types of poems that we have studied. 

We have finished Unit 8 of the Everyday Math Program and will be practicing long division to prepare for 6th grade math. Students will also create a Geometric Dream House from various polygons and will need to find the area of each room and the entire house.

Science/Social Studies
We are currently studying Ancient Civilizations, focusing on the Maya, Inca, and Aztec cultures. Students are also working on their tri-fold display and presentation for the 5th Grade Ancient Civilization Fair. Students will focus on one aspect of life from any of the cultures we are studying.
