Fourth Grade

Fourth grade students at Mary, Seat of Wisdom School are introduced to numerous academic challenges and opportunities, designed to solidify their knowledge of basic concepts and develop their sense of responsibility. Beginning in the fourth grade, students are evaluated for their mathematical skills and placed in either a regular or accelerated program. In Language Arts, students explore creative, narrative, expository, and descriptive writing by reading novels, biographies, and poetry and by writing and presenting book reports.

Beginning in 4th Grade, students are issued an iPad for their use. Students learn to use online tools, often can access their textbooks, and learn to track and complete assignments using Google Classroom. Responsibility for the iPad and learning how to manage internet access and social media are elements of learning too.

Fifth Grade

Fifth grade students at Mary, Seat of Wisdom are guided towards greater independence, responsibility, and respect for themselves and others. The fifth grade Language Arts curriculum focuses on the mechanics of language and on improving writing skills. Both the accelerated and regular math classes require a new level of responsibility for the students to keep track of homework, quizzes and tests. Fifth grade students learn to master basic study skills, including outlining, recognizing context clues, maps, charts and graphs. A Family Life unit is included with the standard Science curriculum. The Religion curriculum consists of a detailed study of the seven Sacraments through the Finding God textbook.  In addition to academics, fifth grade is a special time at Mary Seat of Wisdom School, as the students star in our annual production of “The Nutcracker”— a 40+ year school tradition.

Each child will receive a school-owned iPad to support the fifth grade curriculum. Responsibility for the iPad and learning how to manage internet access and social media are elements of learning too.
