Fifth Grade for Mississippi Students

Everything seems to ramp up in fifth grade. At this stage in a child's development, students are good, logical thinkers and problem-solvers. They can identify needed information and strategies and switch how they think about a challenge until they develop a solution. And for some, this is also when the roller coaster ride of puberty begins. Fifth grade at Mississippi’s tuition-free* Stride K12-powered online school can help students and families navigate this important time.

How does Stride K12-powered fifth grade in Mississippi work?

Stride K12-powered learning offers students experiences that include online and in-person support. State-licensed teachers provide personalized instruction in online classes. As students complete their daily coursework accessed through the online school platform, their Learning Coach is available to offer daily one-to-one support. In grades K–5, the Learning Coach offers about four to six hours of support and helps the student stay on track with their learning schedule, and communicates with teachers via email and phone as needed.

What is the Stride K12 fifth grade curriculum like?

Stride K12's engaging online curriculum is enhanced by hands-on education materials† that help meet the needs of various learning styles. Fifth graders in State's Stride K12-powered online school begin a two-year U.S. history survey from the first North Americans to the Civil War and Reconstruction. In language arts, students read classic fiction and nonfiction. They conduct science experiments building a watershed model, testing cell membrane functions, and analyzing the effects of gravity. And they work with decimals, multiply fractions with whole numbers, and explore angles and shapes to build geometry skills. Students also have access to fifth grade art, music, and world language courses.
