5th Grade Page




with Mrs. Nyhus


Wow - what a wonderful year in 5th grade!  Thank you for partnering with us in your child's education this year.  I am confident they will all be wonderful middle school students!


My 3 wishes for each student this summer:

1.  Read, Read, Read!

2.  Spend time outside with family and friends as much as possible.

3. Try something new!  You never know what interest/skill you will discover!

Please feel reach out at anytime by email at nyhusm@mmsaschool.org.

Our Language Arts curriculum will cover a wide variety of topics.  We will do the majority of our learning through novels such as Wonder and A Long Walk To Water.  We will have a strong spelling curriculum that focuses on the concepts to apply spelling skills to all words along with learning roots.  As always, we will focus on our writing with
the parts of speech and structure throughout the year. 


Our math work is all encompassing.  We begin the year with a focus on our math facts.  This leads us to a lot of
work with fractions, decimals, and percents.  There will be the beginnings of algebra and fun with geometry.


In religion, we learn how we worship as Christians.  We celebrate the Eucharist.  We celebrate God's healing love
and worship God by living in love.


Science gives us a plethora of knowledge!  We will have units on cells and body systems, ecosystems, natural resources, the solar system, simple machines, and so much more!  Science includes a variety of fun experiments
and challenges.


Our social studies is focused on the formation of the United States.  We begin with American Indians along with a research project.  We learn about the colonies, the revolution, and creating the new republic.
