Grade 3 - Grade 5

Grades 3-5Grade 3

St Ann Academy’s strong Literacy program continues in third grade. During this year, a major shift occurs from “learning how to read” to “reading to learn”. Reading skills are put to use with more emphasis on Science and Social Studies as specific content areas

Grade 4

Children assume more responsibility for their learning, keeping themselves organized, and keeping track of their assignments. Fourth grade students at St. Ann also start switching classes for some subjects. Two teachers share the instruction for the fourth grade students. The fourth grade homeroom teacher is the Religion, Math and Science teacher for this group.  Students receive instruction from the fifth grade teacher in Literacy and Social Studies.

Grade 5

Students in grade five continue to develop the ability to interpret, recognize and analyze texts through reading a variety of literature. The English Language Arts curriculum is quite rigorous and consists of reading, writing, spelling and vocabulary. Students become proficient writers under the guidance of the fifth grade teacher.  This group of students is taught Religion, Math and Science by the fourth grade teacher.  Science is a hands on approach with many opportunities for STEM experiences.
