Here's what you get in your Fifth Grade Curriculum Refill:

5th Grade Homeschool Language Arts Language Arts and Reading
When you think of grammar, do you think of endless memorization and lengthy, tedious workbooks, suitable only for the most meticulous older student? If so, you're not thinking of Language Lessons. Language Lessons is the finest implementation of the Charlotte Mason method of instruction we've seen. The short daily lesson may include a picture study with a full-color painting, poetry appreciation, narration, copy work, or more. What a great way to cultivate language skills in your fifth-grader!

Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 5 uses a quick daily lesson approach to build writing skills without overwhelming your student. Sequential Spelling is not only the most logical spelling program we've seen, but it is also one of the easiest to use. Simply read your child one list of words a day to write down, correcting any mistakes as you go. That's it! The sequences are based on building from easy words to advanced words, such as from all, to tall, stall, install, installment, and installation; this is an intuitive approach with no memorization required. Sequential Spelling 4 Student Workbook only is included in the Fifth Grade Curriculum Refill. If your student has not yet completed Sequential Spelling books 1-3, you will want to complete those titles first.

Editor-in-Chief A1 provides a setting for your scholar to take what he's been learning in language and spelling, hone that knowledge, and at the same time enhance his critical thinking and observation skills. Editor-in-Chief improves your child's grammar, punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and attention to detail using a standards-based thinking approach rather than drill and practice. This effective method teaches students to carefully analyze and edit stories that contain errors in writing mechanics and story details. The stories involve mixed-skills practice, starting with easier errors and becoming more challenging as students become adept at the editing process.

5th Grade Homeschool Language Arts Why include Word Roots? Because everyone agrees that children who have a solid grasp of word roots are bound to be children with better spelling and reading comprehension skills, primarily because they have acquired the ability to decode words. We knew we didn't want to teach Latin and Greek roots with a program that was too dull, too schoolish, too intense, or based too heavily on mythology. We also knew that moms are busy enough without another teacher-intensive topic to worry about. With those objectives clarified, it was easy to see that Word Roots is perfect, with its self-teaching, simple, and engaging approach. We've not seen any word roots program more effortless than this one!

While we believe reading is the single most important skill to cultivate in your fifth-grader, you'll notice that we did not include any traditional readers. Don't let this puzzle you. Our experience is that the best way to help your child become an eager reader is to constantly supply him with reading materials that interest him. Future doctors may want to read up on anatomy, young explorers are drawn to the escapades of adventurers young and old, and the baby-lover in your family will be captivated by adoption stories. Assign reading if you must, but encourage it at all costs; a child who enjoys reading will find it easier to excel in every area.
Daily Geography Grade 5 Geography
Basic geography is essential, but done in large, infrequent doses it can become tedious or, worse yet, too quickly forgotten. Daily Geography Grade 5 uses a short daily lesson approach that avoids both pitfalls.
5th Grade Homeschool History All American History
Our complete Fifth Grade Core Curriculum includes the reader, teacher guide, and activity book for All American History Volume 1, making US history come alive from the early explorations through 1840. Of course, the reader and teacher guide are reusable, so our Curriculum Refill just includes a new copy of the All American History Volume I Student Activity Book.
Teaching Textbooks Math 5
Finally, a math text designed specifically for homeschoolers! Teaching Textbooks Math 5's engaging and often humorous text is specifically written to independent learners and generously illustrated with friendly line-drawings. Teaching Textbooks contains far more explanation than any other math program on the market, but because the series was designed for homeschoolers studying independently, it uses far less irrelevant jargon than other textbooks, while still retaining all the terms that students need to know for those important standardized tests.

This program is computer-based, with down-to-earth, step-by-step multimedia lectures, problems, and solutions. After watching the lecture, your child will complete the problems in the workbook, then enter the answers into the computer, where the digital gradebook keeps track for you. Since your math CDs are reusable, we include only the consumable workbook and answer booklet with the Curriculum Refill pack. 5th Grade Homeschool Math

Daily Word Problems Grade 5 Math
Math should be an inherently useful subject, but all too often students get caught up in accurately completing the paperwork of math and never really apply it to real-life problems. Daily Word Problems Grade 5 Math remedies that with a simple problem-a-day approach using story problems to put math in a real-world context.
Critical And Creative Thinking Activities, Grade 5 Zoology 3 Notebooking Journal
Now your school year is even easier. Not strictly a workbook, Zoology 3 Notebooking Journal is designed to help your student track all the science she will learn this year. Includes 200 ready-to-use pages as well as 64 pages of full-color supplements. Our favorites? The suggested schedule, Fascinating Facts Templates, Project Pages, and Scientific Speculation Sheets. Also includes review questions for each lesson, which can be answered orally or as written narration, as well as a final review with fifty questions to test comprehension and retention.
Critical And Creative Thinking Activities, Grade 5Critical & Creative Thinking Activities, Grade 5
Without the ability to think things through thoroughly and logically, your child will be severely handicapped. But that doesn't mean that your child must drill endlessly with boring rules of logic. In fact, this year we will provide you with two different thinking skill books. From brainteasers and logic puzzles to mazes, Venn diagrams, and secret codes, Critical & Creative Thinking Activities has a wealth of mind-boggling activities that your child will enjoy. Exercises include thinking fluency, originality, generalizing, patterning, and problem-solving. Every lesson is based on grade-appropriate themes and is correlated to state standards. Just as important, the presentation is appealing, and many students will find that thinking skills are the highlight of their schoolwork.

Please note: If your child has not yet completed Building Thinking Skills 2, we strongly encourage you to do that this year; the foundational skills covered there will be needed throughout his lifetime. Call us if you would like to substitute that book in this grade.
Spectrum Test Prep Many of you are required by your state to test your child yearly. Spectrum Test Prep gives you a way to prepare for that in a no-stress manner. Includes actual test questions, tips on test preparation, strategies and techniques for answering different kinds of questions, and full-length practice tests.
