I can’t believe my baby is in 5th grade! Time sure flies.
It’s been such a blessing to see him grow, learn, and mature. I take all that I’ve gotten to know about him into consideration when choosing his homeschool curriculum. Here’s what 5th grade will look like for him.

Trail Guide To Learning
Homeschool curriculum planning for my 5th grader is really easy. We are entering our 3rd year of using Trail Guide to Learning and we are still loving it. Trail Guide was the perfect curriculum for my son. It is hands-on, contains stories of adventure and interesting people, and is not boring. (5 Reasons To Love Trail Guide To Learning)
This three year elementary curriculum encompasses all subjects except for math. I love that it comes in one big box that contains just about everything we need to get started. Each day is planned out for us, so I can literally open the book and go the first day of school!
Since we take our time and tend to rabbit trail, we will be spending some time at the beginning of the new school year finishing up Trail Guide’s Paths of Settlement (which is year 2) before moving on to Paths of Progress.
Even though Trail Guide To Learning contains all subjects except for math, my son needs some extra grammar help, so I’ll be adding Easy Grammar 5 to his curriculum. It is a simple way to learn grammar that worked well with my daughter. It only takes a few minutes a day.
Singapore Math has been a homeschool staple since we started homeschooling 6 years ago. This fall, my son will start Singapore math 5a.
Singapore Math has been a great choice for our kids. They love the problem solving approach and real life examples.
That’s it for 5th grade, unless you count the woodworking lessons he gets from a family friend and travel hockey that takes most of our time. It sounds like it will be a fun year!
