Fifth Grade

Ashley Morris has a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education and  is certified in the Orton Gillingham method of reading instruction. Mrs. Morris has been teaching at SPA for nine years.

In fifth grade students are working on becoming independent, critical thinkers, which extends into all subjects areas.  Mrs. Morris is married with four children, all under the age of six!

In Math we spend a lot of time on 3 digit multiplication, long division, fractions, decimals, and 3-step word problems. In Social Studies the focus is on American History. In English we spend a lot of time on creative writing, parts of speech, and grammar maintenance.
We continue to work on key Reading skills such as cause and effect relationships, making predictions, drawing conclusions, main idea and supporting details, and character and setting. In Science we focus on applying different inquiry skills in all areas of Science, and in Religion we focus on the Rosary, the Sacraments, and ways in which to live out the Gospel in our daily lives.
