5th Grade Language Arts

Academic Year Language Arts

In our fifth grade course, students will learn the art of research and essay writing, applying advanced grammar skills in the construction of each written piece. They will continue developing deep vocabularies through the study of classic words and Latin and Greek stems. This course will expand on fifth grade reading and writing objectives for written communication, oral communication, literature, and syntax. We use Michael Clay Thompson's language arts series to challenge our high-achieving students.

Reading Sources

By introducing our students to complex passages from some of the world's greatest writers, we teach students both how to understand intricately-expressed ideas as well as to convey their own insights. Below is a sample of the high-quality classic literature and primary sources from which course material is drawn:
  • Politics and the English Language by George Orwell
  • Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
  • Common Sense by Thomas Paine
  • Anne of Green Gables by Elizabeth Montgomery
  • The Philosophy of Composition by Edgar Allen Poe
  • Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
  • White Fang by Jack London
  • Second Inaugural Address by Abraham Lincoln
  • Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by Benjamin Franklin
  • Federalist Papers by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay
"AoPS Academy is such a valuable resource for my two daughters and our family.  We kept hitting brick walls with our former school and the Director of AoPS Academy was the first person to honestly explain to us options and provide us with information so that we could make informed decisions about their education.  For that we are forever grateful and trust him beyond measure. AoPS Academy is far more than just an after-school academic training center. They have gone above and beyond to help our children's talents develop into their full potential.  Art of Problem Solving Academy will continue to be a key part of our long-term education plan.  The results have been amazing! They are truly my children’s first school, even though they are an after-school program!"
