Timberdoodle's Scheduling Helps Guide

Daily 6-Trait Writing

With 125 dynamic writing lessons, Daily 6-Trait Writing will provide your child practice and instruction concerning all the essential skills necessary to becoming a competent writer. Research proves that a solid understanding of the six traits of writing improves a child's ability to write successfully and just fifteen minutes or less a day is all it will take. Daily 6-Trait Writing is correlated to state standards for educators, with a dash of fun for our apprentice writers.

The Word Roots series teaches children the meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes commonly used in English. Learning word elements dramatically improves spelling and the ability to decode unfamiliar words. Plus, it is now considered a mandatory topic in many states, so you'll want to be sure you cover it.

Word Roots A2

Sequential Spelling DVD

Your child will continue with Sequential Spelling 4. It is not only the most logical spelling program we've seen, but it is also one of the easiest to use. Using the computer DVD, your child will type in each spelling word on his daily list and correct any mistakes. 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.

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 other. With only a few minutes of work, your child will review the language arts she's already learned, then be introduced to new topics. Language Lessons for the Secondary Child 1 covers such topics as advanced grammar instruction, writing (with a focus on poetry and creativity), picture study, intense copy work, narration, writing prompts, and more. What a great way to cultivate language skills in your fifth grader!

Because so many parents have requested it, we also include the Answer Key, so you'll have a handy reference to check your child's work.

Teaching Textbooks Math 5

This year your child will continue with our favorite math program ever. Teaching Textbooks Math 5 is a full-year curriculum designed to be completed on the computer. The friendly lessons and automatic grading mean that this program will be a blessing to both you and your child! (Not sure if this is the correct level to start your child in? Have him take this free placement test and make sure.)

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.

Critical & Creative

Doodle America

Doodling books are great for any age, encouraging imagination, creative thinking and story-inventing abilities, so why not tie that in with your history theme this year? Doodle America does just that, covering historical events, places of interest, and fascinating facts from sea to shining sea.

(also includes everything in Basic Package)
Timberdoodle's Complete Curriculum Kits include everything listed above plus science, history, construction, readers, and additional hands-on tools to add sparkle to your learning time.

Pathway Reader Fifth Grade

Designed to be used in Amish classrooms, these basal readers are solidly wholesome, with none of the fantasy that is commonplace in both Christian and secular readers. Because the Amish don't use electricity, you won't find stories dealing with the latest in films, computers, or TVs. Instead, the stories are centered on farm life, with horse auctions, harvests, and LARGE families. With simple typesetting and a few black-and-white sketches, these hardback books are not splashy, but are lovely in their simplicity.

One note: While we believe that reading is the single most important skill to foster in your fifth-grader, you'll notice that we did not include many 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.

The goal is simple: Choose a challenge from the glossy, spiral-bound booklet and then make the right connections to build a path by arranging the sturdy plastic maze tiles. Challenges seem simple at first: Build a road from the white cat to the gray mouse. But keep in mind that all roads must connect to something with no dead ends and you'll find that even the "simple" challenges take some brain-power. There are forty-eight multi-level challenges with over 1,000 solutions ranging from easy to difficult. (Challenge twenty: Both dogs to the bone. Mouse to the garbage. Dogs must not be able to get to the mouse.)

Cat & Mouse

Keva Brain Builders

Can your 5th grader look at a technical drawing and build a 3-D object? An essential STEM skill, 3-D visualization is the backbone of many professions. Keva Brain Builders will help your child strengthen his 3-D visualization skills using technical drawings and the highly acclaimed Keva planks. With 30 challenge cards and 20 Keva planks, your child will be asked to build a familiar object after seeing its front, top, and side technical drawing. Answers are provided. From lemonade stand to toboggan, rowboat, or even cannon, Keva Brain Builders make learning this skill fun.

A colorful, conversational approach to science, Exploring Creation with Zoology is also very easy to teach. This program uses a notebook-based approach, meaning that as you go through the course your child will be asked to write, draw, or dictate the results of his experiments into a notebook. Not only will this help him retain what he learns, but at the end of the year you will have a lovely record of his work! The hands-on experiments sprinkled throughout the book are sure to be a highlight for both of you. Your Complete Curriculum includes the Exploring Creation with Zoology 3 hardbound textbook and a Notebooking Journal. One note: Don't feel you need to fill in every spot in the notebook; pick and choose what your time and your child's interest allows!

Extreme Dot to Dot - US History

Unlike conventional dot-to-dot puzzles that reveal too much of the picture and ruin the mystery, the Extreme Dot-to-Dot puzzles are intricate and so challenging that when your child looks at a page, he will have no idea what the result will be. That means Extreme Dot-to-Dot USA History will not only reinforce your student's history lessons this year, it will also provide a workout for your child's problem-solving and thinking skills!

With a more interesting approach than most textbooks, America the Beautiful's all-in-one American history, geography, and literature course covers not only historical events from 1000 A.D. to the present, but also natural, God-created attractions; major landmarks; biographies; and what daily life looked like during various eras. Daily, child-pleasing portions guide your student effortlessly through American history, incorporating a plethora of historical photographs, color photos, illustrations, and artwork, plus the reasonably large font with generous amounts of white space.. Bundle includes two textbooks, We the People companion text, plus Answer Key, Timeline, and Maps.

America The Beautiful Bundle

USA Puzzle

Clever! Just when you think there are no new ways to craft a United States jigsaw puzzle, someone proves you wrong. In this case, it is the same company which produces the widely popular, 600-piece Global Puzzle included in fourth grade. What makes the United States Puzzle so distinctive? First, the United States Puzzle is in fact shaped like the United States, with all its beautiful contours. If you have only experienced puzzles with straight edges, you are in for a treat. Second, each state is a puzzle in itself; for example, the state of Washington is made of eight pieces, those pieces together forming the actual shape of Washington. Finally, a surprising bonus is that each state is overlaid with its own symbolic flag. Imagine how much your fifth grader will learn about the USA this year!

When one of our children was a preschooler, we received the best advice a parent of a kinesthetic child could receive: Let her wiggle. And wiggle she did. I don't think she sat for schoolwork for many years. Thinking Putty offers your child a way to move without becoming a distraction. An impressive, adult-sized handful of high-quality, moldable putty, the non-toxic, non-gooey Thinking Putty will bounce, stretch, tear, drip, snap, even shatter. Finally, your little wiggler will be able to sit and listen!

Thinking Putty

Spectrum Test Practice Grade 5

Spectrum Test Practice offers a comprehensive and sequential way to practice the content areas offered on numerous standardized tests, plus access to online state-specific test practice. The up-to-date content reflects national standards and includes practice tests in reading, language arts, and math.

Smencils (Scented Pencils) are made from 100% recycled newspapers; you can even see the layers of recycled newspaper when you sharpen them! Individually packed in their own freshness tubes (made of corn-based biodegradable plastic), guaranteed to keep the delicious aromas fresh for two years. (One Smencil included with each Complete Curriculum).

Gourmet Scented Pencil

(also includes everything in Basic and Complete Packages)
Our Elite Curriculum Kits include all of the materials listed above along with even more bells and whistles such as a survival book, a movie-making kit, Kids' Translations of USA documents, and even a build-your-own Animal Virus model!

Brick City

Focusing on real-world iconic architecture from major cities across the world, Brick City is a combination of showcase and idea book. Brick City will provide your Lego fan a vision for something beyond artillery and aircraft, and give any student an appreciation for architecture. Brick City is not only filled with interesting bits of historical information covering over 100 landmarks, but the author also includes advice on construction techniques, color blending, and more. Includes two bonus posters.

Editor-in-Chief is our favorite program to bridge the gap between grammar head knowledge and practical application. Your children will delight in finding the errors in content, grammar, punctuation, and usage in each exercise. And catching the occasional discrepancies between pictures and the text add an extra element of fun! Detailed solutions are included.

Editor-In-Chief Level 1

Show Me How to Survive

We want kids to read, so we move mountains (of books) looking for any title that will cause a reluctant reader to crack open a book. Show Me How to Survive is one such title. This is not necessarily because your child will need to know how to disarm a shooter, survive a shipwreck, or rescue-breathe for a dog, but because its hundreds of illustrations and sparse text make for an irresistible mix for readers and non-readers alike. Colorful, insightful, and maybe just a bit quirky, this visual guide demystifies 175 events, everything from the essential to the unusual, each explained in nearly wordless, step-by-step illustrations. You'll also find this to be the perfect idea generator for Movie Maker!

When you pledge your allegiance what exactly are you saying? When a flag is spangled is that good or bad? Does the Declaration of Independence promise happiness to all USA citizens? Kids' Translations Collection answers these and other questions in a format that children will find simple, engaging, and memorable, with timelines, a glossary, lots of illustrations, photos, and even a "Why do I care?" section.

Kids' Translations set of 5

4D Science Animal Cell Model

All the complexities of cells can be hard to digest with just book learning. The Animal Cell Model provides a unique way for learning the essential components to these building blocks of life. Each six-inch Cell Model contains twenty-four super-detailed, detachable pieces and features cutaway sections of the various cell parts. Assemble and disassemble as many times as you like, as these science puzzles are made to last.

This very cool kit is a complete introduction to stop-motion animation and filmmaking. With over 290 pages of step-by-step tutorials and hundreds of illustrations, your student will learn how to write screenplays and draw storyboards; how to make a character walk, run, or talk; and finally how to edit scenes and add voices and sound effects. With the StopMotion Explosion Animation Set, your children could research and animate just about anything. The included camera attaches to your computer via a USB cable and utilizes frame-grabbing software that takes all the frames and sticks them together to make a film. You can preview and tweak your animations using onion-skinning, use the included software to add audio and character voices, then enhance and morph the sounds using hundreds of audio effects and free recording software. The kit includes the StopMotion Explosion Book; a CD with sound effects, software for Windows or Mac OS X computers, and a storyboard template; and a specially selected Windows- and Mac OS X-compatible camera with 800x600 image resolution, quality optics with smooth manual focus down to 3cm, and full control of exposure, color, and white balance.
