Fifth Grade Curriculum

Safer, Smarter Kids currently spans from pre-K through third grade, with fourth and fifth grade installments available for classroom use in the 2016-2017 school year.

The fifth grade curriculum builds upon and expands the concept of kid’s rights introduced in fourth grade. It provides strategies for children to identify their inner courage and make choices that can keep them safe during this challenging developmental transition from children to adolescents. Emphasis is placed on teaching children how to react to pressure from peers including, bullying and the setting of personal boundaries. Lesson 5 discusses some of the concerns that children may have as they transition to middle school and models appropriate responses, so children are armed with relatable dialogue that they can use in their everyday lives.
