Homeschool Curriculum 2015 - Grade 5

Homeschool Curriculum 2015

Fifth Grader Homeschooling 2015 

If you noticed in the About Me section of Loving Heart Designs- I mentioned that I have been homeschooling since 1989 with all five of our children. I normally pass down curriculum from year to year but unfortunately shortly after a divorce in 2011 books went missing and I have had to rebuild our curriculum for my youngest child. Curriculum can be expensive but it helps if you can purchase used or from discount sales. I choose to continue using Easy Grammar that is published by Wanda Phillips. As for math, we are using something completely new and exciting called Singapore Mathematics by Marshall Cavendish Education. I found a bulk set of all five books on eBay brand new and very affordable. The Easy Grammar System was purchased from my favorite online store called Christianbook.com. You  can find other homeschool curriculum like Easy Grammar and  Singapore Mathematics at Christianbook.com. I have shopped with Christianbook.com for decades and have purchased used from eBay with successful results.

Students learn grammar faster and easier when they're actually writing and editing texts; this hands-on approach to grammar is just one of the reasons why Easy Grammar is so successful. Utilizing the prepositional approach, students memorize prepositions to then eliminate from sentences, making finding the noun and verb much easier. Concepts are reviewed and introduced throughout the school year; this, accompanied with reviews helps to ensure engaged, mastery learning for all elementary aged children.
Workbook pages with answers overlaid face reproducible workbook pages for students to complete. "To the teacher" notes address areas of importance and teaching tips. A writing section is also included. Workbook to teacher's textcorrelations are noted in the back. Tests included. 700 pages, indexed, softcover. Pages are reproducible. Grade 5.
