5th Grade Curriculum Overview
At St. John's Lutheran School, fifth graders focus on strengthening skills across the curriculum and especially in language arts and math as preparation for middle school. Hands-on activities are utilized whenever possible, while worksheets and workbooks are used to practice and master educational skills.
- Religion — Fifth graders study Old Testament stories and discover how they relate to us today. They learn about the promises God makes to us and about the coming of Jesus and the role of the shepherds, the wise men, and Mary. They study the seasons of the church year and what the liturgical colors mean that are associated with each season.
