Curriculum and Standards The State of California publishes frameworks which contain the content standards for each subject, by grade level for elementary schools. Below is a link to the website and the frameworks for language arts, math, science, and social studies. The core curriculum used in elementary schools in Charter Oak Unified School District are: Language Arts  California Treasures by Macmillan/McGrawHill Math  Envision Math by Pearson Scott Foresman History  Reflections by Harcourt Science  California Science by Harcourt

Essential concepts to work on in fifth grade know antonyms, synonyms, homographs and multiple meaning words understand function and effect of literary devices (symbolism, metaphor, imagery) identify main problem or conflict of a story and how it was resolved draw inferences, conclusions, and generalizations and use evidence from the text to support these contrast motives, appearances, and actions of characters in a story and how these affect the plot or theme use quotation marks around the exact words of the speaker and titles of poems, songs, and short stories write multiple paragraph essays that include an introduction, supporting paragraphs, transitions to link paragraphs, and a summarizing conclusion paragraph revise writing to improve focus and clarity by adding, deleting, combining, and rearranging sentences and words add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals, add with negative numbers, subtract positive numbers from negative numbers add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with like and unlike denominators and write answer in simplest form find decimal and percent equivalents for a fraction (i.e. 1/2=.5=50%) and compute the percent of a whole number determine prime factors of all numbers through 50 and write the numbers as the product of their prime factors by using exponents to show multiples of a factor identify and represent on a number line decimals, fractions, mixed numbers, and positive and negative numbers use a letter to represent an unknown number, write and evaluate simple algebraic expressions in one variable by substitution solve problems involving linear functions, write equation, graph resulting ordered pairs on a grid identify and graph ordered pairs in four quadrants of a coordinate plane know sum of angles in a triangle is 180 degrees and of a quadrilateral is 360 degrees and use this to solve problems measure, identify, and draw angles, perpendicular and parallel lines, rectangles, circles, and triangles using a ruler, compass, and protractor understand volume and compute volume of a rectangular solid identify ordered pairs of data from a graph and interpret a graph
