Mrs. Ewing's 5th Grade

The next best thing to being there.

5th Grade Schedule-Revised!

You will be placed in a group at the end of the first week of school, so the order that you have Science, SS, Reading and Math will be determined by what group you’re in.

We launched this schedule with last year’s group and had great success!

Important Points:

  • Each student has Writing with his/her homeroom teacher.
  • All other classes: Math, Science, Social Studies, and Reading/Language will be with the teacher who specializes in that subject area.  We refer to these classes as “Block Classes”.
  • On Monday – Thursday, we run our Block Schedule.  With the block schedule, each student has homeroom for a few minutes, then will have two block classes and related arts before lunch.  After lunch, students will go to a Focus, for specialized instruction in a particular subject area.  Students will be in homeroom for Writing, and Recess the rest of the afternoon.
  • Students will have two of his/her block classes on Monday/Wednesday and the other two on Tuesday/Thursday.
  • On Fridays, we run our “Mini-Schedule” where we have all of our classes for 40 minutes.

This type of schedule makes for some interesting adjustments, one of which is homework.  Generally, homework that is assigned will not be due until two days later, unless the teacher makes arrangements to collect it sooner.
