Homeschooling Fifth-Grade

If you’re new to This Little Home of Mine, I’m Elizabeth. I am a former elementary school teacher who is now homeschooling my kids. In this story, I’m sharing all about homeschooling fifth-grade!

Not sure what resources to buy? Not sure how to get organized? Not sure how to homeschool multiple kids? This book will answer your questions and more!

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.

Math – In the summer months, Usborne Activity Books have been great for extra reinforcement – with Abeka’s math curriculum being our go-to throughout the year.
