I have an interview tomorrow (11/11/15) for a 5th grade LTS job that would go the rest of the school year. I have not taught 5th before. Any suggestions for how to prepare are welcome! Thanks!

Check out the grade level standards for your state, to see what is expected. Will you have a grade level team to work with? If so, they will be able to help a lot. If not, see if the 4th grade teacher (and 6th, if they have one there) will be helpful.

If you have taught an upper elementary grade before, you'll be in familiar waters. It's similar only with different academic standards. If you've never taught anything near to it, you will need to adjust your style in terms of how you deal with them. They are sensitive about things like being treated like babies, but really still are children. They can take sarcasm and a harsher tone than early elementary, but like all students, they want to know that you like them, notice them, value them as people and that you care.

for your helpful suggestions! I didn't get the job, but that's okay. After the interview, I didn't think it was the best spot for me.
