Welcome to 5th grade! We will be exploring literature and its connection to great writing throughout the coming months! Using the Storyworks! series to explore different genres and our new American Reading Company books to supplement deeper understandings of theme and inferencing, we will be broadening our exposure to more intermediary texts. With this development we will then be able to morph ourselves into writers beyond your wildest imaginations. Exciting times ahead!
