History, Geography, Bible reading and memorization
Complete the epic adventure you started in Intro to American History, Part 1 and experience America's history from the 1850s on. Get to know heroes like Abraham Lincoln, Simon Bolivar, Eleanor Roosevelt and the Wright brothers.
Help children build a firm spiritual foundation as you share daily scripture reading and scripture memorization with the included Sing the Word! CD+digital. Watch their personal journey with the Lord flourish as they develop their own devotional habits.
Includes Sonlight's History / Bible / Literature E, Intro to American History, Year 2 of 2 (4-Day).
Sonlight offers two types of literature: Read-Alouds for parents to share with their children, and Readers for children to read on their own. The Read-Alouds offer more sophisticated story lines and rich discussion points, and the Readers offer age-appropriate reading tied directly into the history content of the program.
This year, students learn to vary sentence length, use active voice, create authentic dialog and more. Dictation exercises provide an opportunity to recognize and imitate writing that shines. Creative expression activities such as mind mapping and letter writing keep them engaged.
All of your Fifth Grade Language Arts assignments are laid out in our Language Arts Instructor's Guide. Each lesson is scripted and includes rubrics (a simple scale so you can easily see where your child is falling on each assignment) in an easy to use format. If you've ever felt intimidated by teaching writing, fear no longer. Mechanics are explained in simple terms, and you can see realistic examples of the type of writing your children should be doing.
Includes Language Arts E (4-Day).
Spelling & Vocabulary
We include Spelling You See E: American Spirit as the default spelling for your children's fifth grade year. The Instructor's Handbook contains an introduction to the philosophy behind Spelling You See and the five development stages of spelling. There are 36 lessons and with the Teacher's Guide you will be able to work through the lessons with instruction on guided reading, chunking, copywork, and dictation to improve spelling. We do offer additional spelling resources as desired. Vocabulary is included with the goal of helping your students develop excellent communication skills.
Hands-on Science with everything you need to teach successfully. Your children will study electricity, magnetism, light, color and lenses as well as space, stars and the planets. They'll make amazing discoveries as they perform over 90 hands-on experiments with the help of our exclusive Discover and Do videos. Includes Science E: Electricity, Magnetism, and Astronomy (4-Day).
Sonlight includes Math-U-See Epsilon in the 5th Grade All-Subjects Package. Building on the foundation of basic operations with whole numbers your children have learned, Epsilon covers these same operations with fractions. Fractions are presented in an intuitive way with visual explanations of equivalent fractions, common denominators, and fractions and numbers larger than 1. Fractions and operations are illustrated using Math-U-See's proprietary Fraction Overlay manipulatives.
A few essential resources make your learning extra rich this year. The All-Subjects package includes a 3” Binder with Tabs to organize your Instructor’s Guides. We recommend adding The Timeline Book, and Markable Map and Markers if you don’t already own them. (The Timeline Book and Markable Map only need to be purchased once. You'll be using them each year).
