5th Grade Literacy

 
Welcome to Mrs. Fragnito' s 5th grade literacy workshop website. I hope this is the year that you fall in love with reading and writing.
books
Literacy Workshop is the study of all modes of communication - reading, writing, speaking, listening and technology. Students will spend their 5th grade year practicing and advancing skills and strategies which help them become 21st Century communicators.

Book Talks
Four book talks  are required of the students, one per marking period. Please go to the book report tab for further directions.

Homework
Students will have occasional homework besides book talks. Please check google classroom for updates and reminders. 

WRITING WORKSHOP: Students are currently working on their informational essays. These are 5 paragraph essays written on a topic of their choice. Students have taken notes, completed outlines, written drafts and are now revising and publishing. Their work is very impressive and I have learned a great deal about a myriad of topics. Graded essays will be returned to the students after the break - enjoy learning from your child on the topic of their choice!
