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
"One of the best decisions I ever made was to send my son to AoPS Academy for improving his math skills. The results are simply amazing! In addition to dramatically improving his math skills, my son also enjoys the social environment that the academy offers. Personally, I am very impressed with the quality of the entire staff (teaching and non-teaching alike). I would not hesitate to recommend AoPS Academy to any parent who is serious about developing their child's academic potential in a safe and stimulating environment."
