Book List

Language Arts

Students begin English grammar with the parts of speech, as well as continue to progress in spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and English usage guidelines using the literary passages presented in Spelling Wisdom, Book 2, and the guided discovery lessons in Using Language Well, Book 2. The first half of these books is covered in grade 5, the rest is completed in grade 6.

Written narration is continued with increasing expectations, encouraging your student to apply the English usage and mechanics guidelines and grammar he has learned. Rubrics and further instructions are provided in the Using Language Well, Book 2, Teacher Guide and Answer Key to help with this process.


Use any of our SCM living science courses—such as Learning about Birds with Thornton Burgess or Jack’s Insects and its corresponding narration notebook—and feel free to combine your children in grades 1–6. These plans will remind you when to do the next science lesson and keep you moving at an enjoyable pace, with some catch-up days included. Journaling a Year in Nature is recommended for nature study.

Lessons include reminders to work on your choice of math curriculum and typing program.
