CURRICULUM INFORMATION

RELIGION

Emphasis is placed on how Jesus plays a pivotal role in our daily lives. This sharing of faith includes: instruction in scripture; the experience of prayer and liturgy; the ability to relate teachings to life experiences; the knowledge of the rich heritage we share in time, place and people; and the profound respect for and love of the Catholic Church.

Language Arts/Literature
Literature is used for oral reading, vocabulary, comprehension, decoding skills, inferences, and critical reading/thinking strategies. Textbooks as well as novels are used to accomplish these goals. The major areas of the English curriculum include: writing, grammar, correct usage, mechanics, dictionary and library skills, speaking and listening skills, and literature. The “Six Traits of Writing” are utilized in the writing process. (Sentence Fluency, Ideas & Content, Organization, Conventions, Voice, and Word Choice) The major books of study are Where the Red Fern Grows, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Island on Bird Street.

Math

New concepts are introduced in small increments and are continually practiced. Number sense, computation in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, geometry, algebra, measurement, and fractions are a major focus at this grade level. They will also focus on data analysis and probability, reasoning and proof, with a great focus on problem solving.

Science

Glencoe Science: An Introduction to the Life, Earth, and Physical Sciences starts students off on the right foot in their secondary science education.
