Fifth grade is a momentous year as it concentrates on properly preparing students for their transition into middle school. Organizational skills are stressed along with academic and social responsibilities. One main goal of fifth grade is for students to master their independent learning skills in all subjects by taking ownership in their own progress and being able to reflect on ways that they can improve. Studentsmaster their independence in reading, writing, math, science, Chumash, Hebrew, andhow to creatively use these skills in individual or group projects.
Throughout the year, students move from literal thinking to more abstract thinking bybeing able to prove or justify their answers and thought process. Students continue to develop a love, excitement, and connection to Torah, Judaism and Israel and realize their relevance in life.
