Grade 5

  • Reading

    Sunrise 2nd Edition

    Teach students not just to read well, but to think well! This half-year course includes five LightUnit workbooks, a reader, and a Teacher’s Guide. The Answer Keys are not required if you have the Teacher’s Guide.

    In addition to developing their comprehension and thinking skills, students learn to analyze, discern, and apply what they read in way that pleases God.

    As a five-LightUnit course, Reading 5 takes only one semester to complete. Having class every other day is one way to spread the course over the entire school year.

  • Bible

    Sunrise Edition

    This latest addition to our new Sunrise Bible program begins a study of the Old Testament, starting with Creation and ending with the life of Moses. Each lesson contains a well-written Bible story followed by workbook activities. Map exercises help students understand the geography corresponding to the lessons.

    The Teacher's Guide contains reproductions of the LightUnit pages with answers filled in.

  • Language Arts

    Sunrise 2nd Edition

    Sunrise 2nd Edition Language Arts 500 includes grammar, spelling, and penmanship. New skills are introduced daily and secured by frequent review. Students learn to recognize parts of speech and understand the functions that each part of speech can perform. This course also deals with sentence structure, including discussions of complements.

    The Answer Key is spiral bound and contains reproductions of the LightUnit pages with answers.

    The Teacher's Guide provides teaching notes, spelling word lists, LightUnit pages with answers, and alternate LightUnit tests.

  • Math

    Sunrise Edition

    Math LightUnit 501 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Math 500. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.

    The remaining LightUnits introduce new skills and concepts in incremental, continuously reviewed steps. We teach the metric system simultaneously with the U.S. system of measurement.

    Daily speed drills continue to cement the basic number facts into the child’s memory. Along with the usual fifth-grade math skills of reducing, carrying and borrowing with fractions, multiplying and dividing decimals, and applying the four operations to increasingly complex problems, we lay a foundation for later geometry and algebra in gentle, painless steps.

    LightUnit themes in story problems give students a window into actual Christian missionary activities around the world.

    The Teacher's Guides give teaching tips, extra practice, solutions, LightUnit answers, and alternate LightUnit tests. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guides are purchased.

    Textbook Study Method

    Now this time-tested math program is also available in a full-color textbook. The format and appearance are new, but we have kept the incremental approach to learning and the same scope and sequence as the LightUnits.

    This course includes a textbook that is attractively and professionally formatted with colorful pictures and illustrations. It uses the same learning approach as LightUnits: spiral, incremental learning, continuous review. The Teacher’s Guide is full-color, and includes reproductions of all textbook pages with answers. The Full Solution Answer Key shows each problem with its solution for the textbook, quizzes, and tests. The Student Pack includes consumable quizzes, tests, and daily speed/mastery drills.

  • Science

    Sunrise Edition

    This course uses the textbook God’s Marvelous Gifts to introduce the student to the rich resources created by God for life in this world.

    Science 500 covers the physical world, plants, the heavens, animal life, and the human body. The reading level is appropriate for either fourth or fifth graders.

    You have two options for this course.  Both require the textbook. The LightUnit option provides the standard Sunrise format in exercises, quizzes, self checks, and tests. Answer keys are required, but the Teacher's Guide is optional. The study-by-textbook option uses questions in the textbook and requires a student test packet and a Teacher's Guide for answers.

    Teacher material contains answers for the text, teaching helps, and enrichment. Both methods cover a year’s work.

  • Social Studies

    Sunrise Edition

    North America Is the Lord’s is a comprehensive history and geography of Anglo-America from a God-centered perspective.

    This study credits God, the Creator, as the sovereign Lord. It describes opposing forces in history: the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. Social values belonging to God’s kingdom are upheld. This book counters the humanistic idea that we control our destinies, and that our land thrives because of our own ingenuity.

    You have two options for this course: use the LightUnit study guides, or follow the textbook exercises.

    The Study-Guide LightUnits are self-directed study guides for the textbook. Each LightUnit includes two quizzes, a self check and a test.

    For a textbook study, use the study-by-textbook materials in place of the LightUnits. Test packets may be ordered separately.
