Fifth Grade Homeschool Curriculum

Establishing Connections Between Subject Matter

5th Grade Homeschool Curriculum

In Calvert's Fifth Grade Homeschool Curriculum, students learn the connections between American history, literature, and geography by reading classic historical novels such as Sing Down the Moon and The Sign of the Beaver.

Essential writing skills continue to be developed, including paragraphing, outlining, and summarizing. Your child will write original reports, stories, and essays using the lessons about sentence types in our grammar unit.

Calvert is now offering two choices for Math: Our classic Calvert Math covers multiplication up to three digits, geometry, multiplying and dividing fractions, and introduces integers. In Math in Focus, students read and write numbers to 10,000,000; multiply and divide by tens, hundreds, and thousands.

Advances in Technology, Geography, and Art

Technology instruction includes research skills and basic HTML. In Science your child will study plants, weather, climates, and ecosystems. The Geography unit focuses on regions of the United States.

Most exciting and unique to Calvert is our inclusion of Art History in the Fifth Grade homeschool curriculum. Your child’s classical education will include picture study and A Child’s History of Art: Painting, another text written by Virgil Hillyer, Calvert's first Head Master.
