In 5th grade Language Arts we have been studying what it’s like to cross between cultures. We have been reading both fiction and non-fiction stories about people who immigrated to different countries. We also have been learning how to write narratives that include thoughts, feelings and actions.
The students have been writing using specific details and have been learning about first and third person points of view. In Social Studies we have been learning the traits of good citizenship ( patriotism, civic virtue, respect, tolerance, and responsibility). We have been discussing what 5th graders can do to show good citizenship.
