Good morning! Today I’m sharing what we do on a daily basis for 5th grade in my What’s in the Workbox Wednesday post. These are Tinkerbell’s workboxes and she does complete all of these activities each day, with the exception of art which we currently only done once a week.
Let’s get started: Watch my What’s in the Workbox 5th Grade video here!
5th Grade Curriculum:
- Art: World’s Greatest Artists 2 and Draw Write Now books
- Bible: Word of Life Quiet Time devotion
- English/Grammar: IEW Fix It Grammar
- History: Abeka 5th Grade
- Literature: Classical Literature Units
- Math: Math U See Epsilon
- Music: Choir (at our options program)
- P.E.: Swim Team, Inline Hockey, PE at Options
- Science: Abeka 5th Grade maybe a scientist unit if we can fit it in!
- Spelling: Spelling You See D
- Typing: Typing Web
- Writing: Institute for Excellence in Writing Group A Continuation
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:
- 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.
- Music – Choir and basic instruments.

I hope this helps some of you out, I know getting started can be overwhelming! I wrote a book called Homeschooling 101 that will help answer all of your questions on how to get started homeschooling, choosing curriculum, creating lesson plans, etc. For more information on homeschooling check out my Homeschooling 101: A guide to getting started!

I love seeing your room set-up and everything you guys are working on. As a fellow homeschool family, it’s always fun to see what others are using because we have found what may work one year, may not work the next for us. So, it keeps me fresh on curriculum and supplies! We have the same desks and absolutely LOVE them! Thanks for your videos! I learn a lot from them!
What grade did you stop doing aloud readers? Or did you follow A Beka for that? I know that is coming up for us, but not sure when to expect it. Thanks!!
I couldn’t find the video you mentioned about your new set up. I would love to know the reasoning why you switched the desk set up. Was it hard for kids to concentrate being at the same table? Thanks you.
Hi Taryn, Sorry it is here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BPF5CkhgSUm/?taken-by=ericaarndt
We just moved around for a change of pace. They did fine at one big desk, but everyone is excited to have their own more private desks now too. I think it just depends on your space, and needs. We like to move things around just to keep them new and fun. They’ll often switch which desks they sit at as well if I’m not up for a big move.
