Good morning! Today I’m sharing our 2016-2017 5th Grade homeschool curriculum with you. We’re making some changes around here this year, and I’ll tell you all about it in the video!



So to see what my 5th grader will be doing this year watch our 2016-2017 5th Grade Homeschool Curriculum video here!


5th Grade Curriculum:


Options: We participate in a once a week options program through our local school district. They offer a variety of classes that help supplement our homeschooling. It also provides the kids with a fun day where they get to see their friends and participate in a classroom environment. Here is a list of her classes this year:

  • PE
  • Language Arts – We of course do this at home as well, but I’m finding that it’s a nice supplement to what we’re doing.
  • Science – they get to do fun things like experiments, dissection, electronics, and more.
  • Spanish
  • Music – Choir and basic instruments.

And that’s it for our 5th grade curriculum line up this year! I’ll try to do a mid-year update to let you all know how it’s going. We’re trying some new curriculum this year, so that’s always exciting!

  1. Erica,

    What item specifically did you order for IEW? As I am browsing IEW, there seems to be many options here to order from? Too confusing, but it seems to be taught on DVD? I would love to see you showcase this program to see what this program looks like.

  2. I have been following you for YEARS and really like how you share your homeschool days and curriculum. Personally, our curriculums have matched more and more :). Thanks for helping those in the community!

  3. I’m kind of curious what YOUR day looks like. You mention that you help your kids here and there, but I’m not sure what that looks like. Personally, I feel like I’m constantly teaching and I want to see if that’s normal or if I need to back off some. I do have 5 though, but only teaching 3 school age. Could you post your schedule please?
