Fifth grade is an exciting year full of great learning, interesting field trips, and much more. Teaching and learning will focus on the following aspects of  21st century learning: critical thinking, creativity and innovation, collaboration, cross-cultural understanding, communication, computing technology, and career learning. In our classroom we will: persever, create, imagine, be curious, collaborate often, apply knowledge, be purposeful, tolerate failure, think critically, tolerate failure, and take risks. All of these skills and ideas will help us to feel empowered. 

Additionally, we will be taking a design thinking mindset towards the majority of our teaching and learning. Students will be exposed to thinking about problems, empathizing, finding users, creating point of views, and much more. Click here to learn more about design thinking from the Stanford d school.
