In grades 5 and 6, we set the foundation for the rest of your life. During these pivotal years, students are learning to be critical thinkers. Much of the foundational work for skill building has occured during their Kindergartern through fourth grade years, and now we are transitioning our students into the realms of deep conceptual thought and independent thinking.
Each day is begun with their homeroom teacher spending time with God through worship and Bible instruction. At F. H. Jenkins we firmly believe that Christ is at the center of all learning and we aim to start every morning learning of Him.
At F. H. Jenkins we use the GO Math! K-8 program. This program provides engaging and interactive lessons that lead students to deeper conceptual understandings of the standards. We also use the By Design science curriculum. This curriculum teaches science from a Christian perspective and encourages inquiry as a primary method for learning. Finally, students are engaged in rigorous literacy instruction that pushes them to be critical analysts and evaluators of text. Pathways curriculum is used as a tool to guide students toward literacy success.
