Procedures Each classroom has procedures and expectations that have been explained to students.

Pencils, red pens, colored pencils, glue, and scissors should be brought to class every day.
Discipline In order to maintain an environment conducive to learning, appropriate behavior and work habits are expected from your child. Your child will be warned about inappropriate choices. After a warning, students will receive a conduct mark. Other negative consequences can result in loss of a privilege, lunch detention, alternate seating, and student conferences.

Reading Language Arts Fifth Grade Reading Course Overview The English Language Arts & Reading Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) are organized into the following strands: -Reading, where students read and understand a wide variety of literary and informational texts; -Writing, where students compose a variety of written texts with a clear controlling idea, coherent organization, and sufficient detail; -Research, where students are expected to know how to locate a range of relevant sources and evaluate, synthesize, and present ideas and information; -Listening and Speaking, where students listen and respond to the ideas of others while contributing their own ideas in conversations and in groups; and -Oral and Written Conventions, where students learn how to use the oral and written conventions of the English language in speak-ing and writing. The standards are cumulative--students will continue to address earlier standards as needed while they attend to standards for their grade. In fifth grade, students will engage in activities that build on their prior knowledge and skills in order to strengthen their reading, writing, and oral language skills. Students should read and write on a daily basis.
