Writing, math, science, and logic are some of the most essential 5th-grade subjects as they form a foundational platform for kids to learn other subjects with greater efficiency. 5th graders read many types of literature and informational material, think critically about what they read, and discuss it with the teacher and other students. They write for many different purposes and learn new writing techniques, including making effective transitions, using dialogue to advance the plot and creating a mood, such as suspense. In math they work with fractions, decimals, negative numbers and very large numbers (in the billions). They focus on multiplying and dividing multi-digit numbers.
