Making Meaningful Connections Across Subjects

In our 5th Grade program, your child will begin to draw meaningful connections between American History, Literature, and Geography as they read texts ranging from the Newbery award-winning Hatchet to the illustrated Explorers of North America

With Edmentum’s Calvert Learning Lessons as your guide, you will help your child:

  • Continue to develop strong writing skills, composing a short story, op-ed, narrative, and explanatory texts using the ELA course.
  • Develop literary analysis skills while exploring themes, characters, setting, and conflict in texts chosen to engage your child’s imagination.
  • Explore how the Earth’s geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere interact.
  • Investigate the history of the U.S. and his/her home state from Reconstruction through the modern era.
  • Continue developing strong number-sense, mental-math, and problem-solving skills while learning to multiply two-digit numbers, practicing long division, and working with decimals and fractions.
