Language Arts
Etowah County has adopted a new reading series ReadingWonders by McGraw-Hill which will support our new Alabama CCRS that will be implemented during the 2013-2014 school year.  Reading Wonders is a researched base program that effectively meets the new CCRS.  Students will receive instruction in the following areas:
Accessing Complex Text
Close Reading of Text
Finding and Using Text Evidence
Decoding Multisyllabic Words
Writing About Reading
Research and Inquiry
The series has excellent literature along with leveled readers that will be both challenging and interesting reading for all of the children.
Weekly Assessment focuses on two key areas of English Language Arts, reading and language.  Students will read two selections each week and respond to items focusing on Comprehension Skills and Vocabulary Strategies.
Our school uses Go Math which was adopted by the Etowah County School System to supplement the new 2013 CCRS.
The fifth grade curriculum focuses on physical science, life science, and earth and space science. The Alabama Course of Study is used as the guide for science instruction. 
United States History
