5th Grade Curriculum

My youngest will be in fifth grade this coming school year, 2020-2021. Here is what I have set aside for her school work:

Bible – GraceLink.net – Primary

We also read Young Disciple Magazine for our family devotional.


Three stones

Stones by the river bank in the Greenbrier section of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Language Arts – Wordly Wise 3000, Book 4-5 (vocabulary);

Logic of English Essentials, Level A; this represents mostly spelling, but there are grammar and vocabulary concepts, as well as punctuation rules being taught here. We hope to move from level A to level B and finish all lessons. We will see what kind of speed we can adopt. Spelling is a growth area for this student and we just take it at her pace.

Spelling Bee (word list and participation in our “school” level bee at a local homeschool group);

Writing with Ease (Book 3);

Rod and Staff Grammar;

Mensa for Kids Reading List for grades 4th-6th (so not the entire list, continuing on it and pacing ourselves through it)

Math – Math Mammoth, 5th grade


Other subjects

Social Studies – Story of the World, Vol. 3, Early Modern Period; geography lesson plans based on reference books I have around the house (Famous Places etc); Tennessee History for Kids booklets


Science – Science Olympiad (if there is one this year), Nature Study (we follow Handbook of Nature Study suggestions), Christian Schools International Science Textbook


Music – Violin; Youth Orchestra (if they will NOT require masks); piano


Physical Education – Taekwondo; hiking with Wild + Free Great Smoky Mountains


Art – Classes at Art Studio of the Smokies


French – French for Children, Primer A + B


Romanian – I read to them from the story books I have in Romanian plus I speak to them in Romanian as much as possible.


Latin – Latin for Children, Primer A


I hope this gives you some options and ideas. Of course, there are so many programs that are just as good as what I have picked. So do feel free to ask me questions.
