5th Grade Top Homeschool Curriculum Picks

Hi everyone! I’m seeing a lot of activity in the COAH Community so I know you are all starting to plan ahead for next year! So today I’m sharing our top 5th grade homeschool curriculum picks! We’ve gotten to the point where we’re pretty pleased with our line up of curriculum. While I like to do a variety of student independent as well as teacher led activities I like to start introducing a little more independent work at this grade level. I think it helps make the transition to 6th grade and above where a lot of their work becomes more independent a bit easier.   I also like to add in something fun and hands-on since this is their last year in elementary school and things get a bit more serious as they continue up the grade levels. I usually try to pick something more engaging for science and history at this stage. It’s the perfect excuse to do fun experiments, and build cool things. It’s also a fun grade to do robotics and electronic lessons.   So let’s get … [Read more...]
