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. View the course scope and sequence.

  • Bible

    Sunrise Edition

    After working through Bible 5, students will see the Old Testament with new eyes! This course begins a study of the Old Testament, starting with Creation and ending with Moses.

    Each lesson includes a well-written Bible story followed by student exercises under different headings, each with a specific focus: Know God, Know Your Bible, Those Curious Customs, and Take It to Heart. Lay of the Land map exercises help students understand the geography of the stories.

    As a five-LightUnit course, Bible 5 takes only one semester to complete. Having class two or three times a week spreads the course over the entire school year.

    This course consists of five LightUnit workbooks and one Teacher’s Guide. Two Answer Keys are optional. View the course scope and sequence.

  • Language Arts

    Sunrise 2nd Edition

    Language Arts 5 integrates grammar, spelling, and penmanship into one easy-to-use course. Use Christian Light’s Language Arts Diagnostic Test to place students new to the curriculum. New concepts are not tested until they have been reviewed at least four times.

    In addition to working with grammar, language mechanics, and sentence diagramming, students write a research paper, study poetry, and give a book report. Most LightUnits include two creative writing lessons. The three spelling lists in each LightUnit include twenty words each.

    The course consists of ten LightUnit workbooks and two Teacher’s Guides. The Answer Keys are not required if you purchase the Teacher’s Guides. View the course scope and sequence.

     

  • Math

    Sunrise Edition

    Sunrise Math 5 teaches new skills and concepts in incremental, continuously reviewed steps. Concepts are tested only after being reviewed for five days or more. Use Christian Light’s Math Diagnostic Test to place students new to the curriculum.

    Along with general fifth-grade math skills of reducing, carrying and borrowing with fractions, multiplying and dividing decimals, and applying the four operations to increasingly complex problems, Math 5 continues building a foundation for later geometry and algebra. The themes in the story problems relate to Christian ministries around the world. View the course scope and sequence.

    Math 5 offers two study options:

    LightUnit Study Method

    LightUnit workbooks allow students to do their work right on the page. They can be less intimidating to students and easier to handle than a textbook. The LightUnit study method consists of ten LightUnits and two Teacher’s Guides. Two Answer Keys are optional.

    Textbook Study Method

    The textbook uses the same methodology and covers the same material as the LightUnits, though the sequence is sometimes different. The textbook is more colorful than the LightUnits and makes it easier for students to refer to previous lessons. Students must write their answers on other paper (except on quizzes and tests).

    The textbook study method consists of one Textbook, one pack of Student Material, and either a Teacher’s Guide or a Full Solution Answer Key (your choice).

  • Science

    Sunrise Edition

    Science 5 uses the textbook God’s Marvelous Gifts to introduce the student to the rich resources God has created. Students explore the physical world, plants, the heavens, animal life, and the human body. Science supplies for this course are available from Home Science Tools. View the course scope and sequence.

    There are two study options. Both options require the textbook.

    LightUnit Study Method

    The LightUnit study is recommended for homeschools and schools where teacher involvement is limited. Five LightUnit workbooks provide exercises, daily review, quizzes, and tests. This study method includes five LightUnit workbooks, a textbook, and two Answer Keys. There is no Teacher’s Guide.

    Textbook Study Method

    The Textbook study uses the questions provided in the textbook. This method is better suited for classrooms where teachers provide instruction and review. This study method consists of a textbook, Tests Pack, and a Teacher’s Guide. We recommend this course for 4th grade when using the Textbook study.

  • Social Studies

    Sunrise Edition

    Social Studies 5 is based on the textbook North America Is the Lord’s. Students explore the history and geography of the United States and Canada. The textbook honors God’s sovereignty in history, countering the humanistic view that nations control their own destinies. Christian Light Social Studies courses reflect the Anabaptist perspectives of the two-kingdom concept of separation of church and state and non-participation in war.

    There are two study options. Both options require the textbook.

    LightUnit Study Method

    The LightUnit study is recommended for homeschools and schools where teacher involvement is limited. LightUnits provide exercises, daily review, quizzes, and tests. Unlike most Christian Light courses, this course consists of nine LightUnit workbooks instead of ten or five. In addition to the nine LightUnit workbooks, this study method includes a textbook and two Answer Keys. There is no Teacher’s Guide. View the course scope and sequence.

    Textbook Study Method

    The Textbook study uses the questions provided in the textbook. This method is better suited for classrooms where teachers provide instruction and review. This course consists of a textbook, Chapter Tests, and an Answer Key.
