Fifth-graders continue to develop a wide range of applied strategies to comprehend functional, informational, and literary texts. To achieve this, teachers place emphasis on reading, literature, research and inquiry, and oral and visual communication. Ideas, opinions, and information are expressed through narrative, descriptive, expository, and persuasive writing. Research and inquiry provide opportunities for students to use search strategies.
