5th Grade


Fifth Grade is an exciting year for students.  This is students last year at PS 32 and they feel a sense of responsibility and independence.  

We guide and support this responsibility and independence.  As we begin the year, exploring the reading and writing workshop, students are guiding the discussions around the Writers' Notebooks and Reading Response Notebooks.  We also delve deeper into looking at Document Based Questions, preparing our students to be more analytical writers.  We continue the year exploring non-fiction (feature articles), poetry, social issues through book clubs, and realistic fiction.

We look forward to seeing you in the 5th grade!!
