Moving from middle school to fifth

Hey all!

This coming school year, 2020-2021, I will be moving from teaching middle school to teaching fifth grade.

For the last seven years I've been teaching 6th, 7th, or 8th grade, either math or science in schools with poverty levels between 97% and 75%. This coming school year I will be teaching fifth grade, all content areas, in a school with a poverty level around 52%. So there's a lot of changes in both content and student population.

I'm both excited and nervous about this change, as I haven't worked with fifth grade since my student teaching in 2007. I'm looking for any suggestions, resources, advice, etc that people can offer so that I can be better prepared come August.
