Home Mrs. Spencer 5th Grade Reading

Students in 5th grade will be asked to come up higher as we analyze and think critically about the novels and passages we read.  Vocabulary is a key part of all that we do.  Weekly lessons will require students to use analogies, context clues, synonyms, antonyms and higher order thinking skills.
Good thought for the week
 Never underestimate the power of expectation.
