Language Arts & Literature 5

 

The fifth grade language arts course emphasizes writing, reading, and grammar study.  WriteShop,an incremental writing curriculum, aids students in writing with correct structure and appealing style. Grammar concepts are presented in class and practiced at home using A Beka’s Language B. Also, students read uplifting works of literature such as Johnny Tremain, and The Witch of Blackbird pond and poems by American authors, which enhance their fifth grade American history study. The students’ reading skills will increase as they participate in class discussions about the meaning and structure of the literature.
