This year our students will be participating in whole group instruction for reading. The students will be reading the same novel and will participate in class discussions about the novel they are reading. The students will be reading 3 novels this year as well as several nonfiction texts. After reading, the students will participate in differentiated group activities that allow students to work on skills that are individualized specifically for each student’s needs. Grades will come from vocabulary quizzes, novel tests, daily activities, and projects.

Social Studies

God desires that we learn of the heritage we have. He wants us to acknowledge His hand of leadership in the formation of our nation. The students will be learning about the history of Texas and the impact of different cultures.



The students will be using EnVision Math this year. In addition to using EnVision Math, your child will use IXL, centers, and a variety of other means and methods.



God is the creator of life and the creator of the universe. It is our responsibility to be good stewards of the resources he has given us. We will learn about God’s world by experimenting, reading, and researching.



This year’s Bible curriculum focuses on Good vs. Evil. The students will be analyzing various people from the Bible that have made good and bad decisions. These lessons are designed to help your child become a good Christian leader, to build a biblical worldview, and to have a closer relationship with the Lord.
