Dorothy Linder Elementary School

Fifth Grade

Welcome to 5th Grade, a year of exciting learning and growth! At Linder, our 5th Grade curriculum is designed to align with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), providing students with a well-rounded education in key subject areas. Throughout the year, students will build upon their prior knowledge and develop a deeper understanding of core concepts. In Language Arts and Reading, students will continue to enhance their reading comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary skills, while also refining their ability to analyze and interpret different types of texts. Writing skills will be further developed as students learn to express their ideas effectively through various genres and formats. In Mathematics, students will delve into numerical operations, algebraic thinking, geometry, and data analysis, strengthening their problem-solving and critical thinking abilities. Science will take students on an exciting journey through the scientific method, exploring topics such as matter, energy, Earth and space, and the interdependence of organisms. Social Studies will deepen students' understanding of U.S. history, geography, economics, and government, fostering their ability to analyze historical events and think critically about their impact on society. Additionally, 5th Grade places a strong emphasis on developing vital social-emotional skills, such as resilience, self-awareness, and responsible decision-making. Through collaborative projects, hands-on experiments, and interactive lessons, our 5th Grade students will thrive in an environment that encourages creativity, curiosity, and a love for learning. Together, we will prepare them for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead, equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed academically and become engaged, informed citizens.
