This Grade 5 English class builds on the grammar and punctuation lessons taught in the corresponding Grade 4 English class. This course combines three different learning methods–videos, reading, and writing–to create an effective learning atmosphere.
This class goes beyond the basics of grammar, covered in 4th grade, and explores several different types of writing and how to use good punctuation. Students will also learn basic proofreading and editing skills to improve their own writing, week to week.
The video lessons each introduce the topic for the day, provide examples of the new topic, and review material covered in the previous lesson’s worksheet.
The daily reading assignments are a chosen at an age-appropriate level to help your child enjoy the class. But these stories also reinforce the video lessons by giving the student constant examples of good grammar. The daily worksheets and weekly writing assignments both help your student to demonstrate his understanding of the lessons, and provide another reinforcement of the topics being learned.
Each week has 4 lessons of new material, followed by 1 review lesson, just like all of the other The Good Curriculum classes.
