What Will My Student Learn?
Fifth Grade Language Arts Student Books A-D introduce nouns of all types, action, helping, being and linking verbs, verb tenses, subject-verb agreement, forming singular and plural, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, interjections, possessives, contractions, and other grammar concepts. In addition, your student will learn the mechanics of grammar with punctuation marks of all types, capitalization, prefixes, suffixes, misused words and more. There are ample practice exercises and review sections to reinforce what the student has learned. An answer key makes grading and feedback easy for you.
The exercises in the LA student books will help strengthen your student’s understanding of basic grammar concepts. These exercises build upon an introductory understanding of the parts of speech as covered in WinterPromise’s Third or Fourth Grade Language Arts program. The exercises will contain review concepts, but will also increase in difficulty or add new concepts to their knowledge of basic grammar.
SpellWell Book D & DD together provide a year’s worth of spelling lessons. The activities presented in these books are some of the most interesting I’ve ever seen, and really do help your student master their weekly spelling list. Additional spelling practice is included in the front of this guide.
Creative Writing offers weekly ideas that give your child a creative outlet for their imagination and encourage them to express their thoughts in a written form. Your child will work specifically this year on writing a good paragraph, learning key concepts like how to construct a paragraph, outlining a paragraph, and using signal words. Your child will also discover different types of paragraphs, such as the sequence paragraph, the descriptive paragraph, the cause-effect paragraph and a few more. Then, they will write paragraphs themselves, using topics that link in with their chosen main themed study guide, and helpful pages right in their LA student books.
Cursive Writing Practice is included in your LA student books. To help your student learn or reinforce the forms for themselves, the letters are divided into groups of common forms, and each group has a name that serves as a memory device, helping students remember how to form each letter.
