5th Grade Overview
5th grade is an exciting year at VCS! The curriculum includes American history studies; an introduction to pre-algebra concepts and geometry as well as continuing foundational math skills; investigating scientific concepts according to God's Word; a full language arts study including spelling, essay writing and novels; plus a Biblical Choices curriculum that encourages students to evaluate their choices based on Biblical principles and examples.
In addition to the standard curriculum, 5th grade offers many special events and projects. Writing skills are enhanced and developed with the writing of president reports, reading response journaling, and researching the more in-depth state reports. Our 55 Club provides opportunity for leadership and bonding between 5th graders and their kindergarten buddies. The spring "Amerikids" musical performance unites our American history studies with on-stage speaking and musical skills. The year culminates with four days and three nights of outdoor education at Alliance Redwoods Christian Conference Grounds, as well as a week of hands-on science and math activities.
