If you are considering homeschooling your fifth-grader, I’m so glad you’re here. I’m going to share my favorite resources, teaching strategies, and planning tips.
Bible – When my boys were younger, we used resources like The Jesus Storybook Bible for our Bible time. I know we will continue to enjoy that book as a family (It is truly beautiful!).
As far as Scripture memory goes, we are part of a local AWANA program. Throughout the school year, our memory work comes directly from our handbooks.
Language Arts – My kiddos are second generation Abeka students. Abeka’s phonics program was used to teach me to read, and as a classroom teacher.
Handwriting – In the early years, we begin with Abeka’s manuscript option for handwriting. In the second-grade year, we begin learning cursive using Abeka’s cursive option…
Creative Writing – This is an area where I like to add in some additional activities – fun writing prompts, out-loud storytelling games, various holiday activities, etc.
