5th Grade Language Arts Curriculum

This curriculum helps our students to build their skills in reading, writing, vocabulary, and comprehension. It aims at consolidating what they learned in elementary grade. This year, students will learn a higher level of suffixes, prefixes, antonyms, synonyms, and more. In addition to that, they’ll also learn how to use transitions, correlative conjunctions, perfect verb tenses, and other topics.

This page gives you all the information on what your child will learn in this curriculum and the language skills every fifth grader should have.

What Language Arts Concept Should a Fifth Grader Know?

In this Grade, students should exhibit mastery of their previous knowledge and learn new skills here. Fifth graders should be able to read different types of text and understand them. They should also be able to read questions, interpret them, and provide intelligent answers. Students should be able to write simple essays that are clear and devoid of spelling errors and grammatical blunders at this age and level.

We expect all the students of 5th-grade language arts students to be able to handle the following:

  • Make intelligent inferences from texts
  • Master the use of prefixes and suffixes
  • Be able to summarize a long story or text in a few sentences
  • Be able to use pronouns in objective and subjective forms
  • Master the use of thesauruses, glossaries, dictionaries, search engines, and other reference materials.
