• Welcome to 5th Grade at South Jackson Elementary!

    Welcome to 5th grade at South Jackson Elementary School! We strive every day to provide an academically challenging environment and classrooms that provide a safe and accepting space for students to learn and grow. 

    Our classrooms are designed to provide engaging and rigorous lessons to challenge students to use their problem-solving skills and creativity across all academic subjects. In math this year, our students will learn about various topics ranging from operations using whole numbers, decimals, and fractions to geometry skills about shapes, measurements, and coordinate grids. In reading, we will discuss aspects of both nonfiction and fiction passages. In writing, we will focus on narrative, informational, and opinionated writings along with a word study to enhance vocabulary and understanding. In social studies, we will learn about history from 1900 to the present day. In science, we will discuss the classification of animals and plants, cells, inherited traits, electricity, magnetism, Earth science, and physical and chemical changes. We look forward to a great year in 5th grade!
