Hello there! So I have been teaching 1st grade for 3 years (since I started teaching. Though it's been great, it hasn't been what I wanted. I did my student teaching in 5th grade and fell in love with it. Well, I got the best news from my principal who said I get to be in 5th grade next year! Woohoo! So excited, but now I'm slightly scared. They're going from departmentalized to self contained, which is another big deal. So here's my question- What are the major skills or standards that are taught in fifth grade? I've looked at all of the CCSS and old standards for Florida, but it's so overwhelming. I'm just looking for a quick summary of the skills for math, reading, writing, science and social studies. I'm going from teaching basic addition to so much more. Thanks in advance!
