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 has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
