This year will be utilized to prepare your child for middle school; responsibility and independence should be encouraged! In fifth grade, your child will read and understand a variety of grade level appropriate texts independently for long periods of time. Your child will be able to put reading strategies into practice to identify and understand unknown words they encounter while reading.
