Hello and welcome to fifth grade at PS 452!
We are the fifth grade team and we are your child's teachers this year! The team is made up of Sarah Anthony, Leila El-Azem and Brigida Littles. Every new year is exciting, but this year is particularly special because your children, the pioneers, are our first graduating class! Being supportive and communicative has always been your mode of operation, so we continue to look forward to a successful year! We are hoping to answer general questions on our private website. https://ps452grade5.shutterfly.com/ . Please contact us for passwords and individual concerns.
We are deeply invested in your child's success. We are also dedicated to creating and maintaining classrooms where your child and his or her peers are working hard to meet their academic goals here at PS 452 and beyond. Expectations are always high here at PS 452, but we are expecting even more from our learners this year as we work to prepare them for middle school and beyond.
Our challenging curriculum this year consists of reading and writing workshop where learners will work together in book clubs to analyze themes and engage in debates across fiction, fantasy, social issues, and nonfiction texts. As scientists, learners will explore the topics of variables, nutrition and the environment. In math, fifth graders will construct theories and practices around relationships and operations using fractions, decimals and measurement. In Social Studies students will learn about European Exploration, Latin America, the Civil Rights movement, and Westward Expansion.
