2020 Fifth-Grade Curriculum Kit
(Free Ground Shipping on your entire order when you purchase 2020 Fifth-Grade Curriculum Kit)
This year you will love helping your child continue building his language, math, and thinking skills. He will study the science of the Industrial Age, learn about American history, and make his own stop-motion short films. With colorful geography, robust STEM kits, and more hands-on materials that develop logical thinking, this year will be a year packed with happy memories for both of you!
We asked parents who used our Fifth-Grade Kit how long their student spent on "school,” and they estimated that they spent 2-5 hours a day on their kit. That variation is likely to be impacted by how in-depth you take your child's studies, what your child's learning approach is, how distractible he is, and much more. You’ll be able to plan yours to work best for you with your access to the online Timberdoodle Scheduler, included with your kit. Make sure you allow yourself and your child some time to find your own rhythm!

Everything I need for a great, productive school year! My son has especially been pleased with the hands on learning included in the curriculum this year!
This is our first year homeschooling and I needed a curriculum that was easy to use and fun for him. This was perfect. It came with everything we needed (plus a few extra gifts), it is easy for me to teach and my son enjoys it all but one. The only subject that neither of us like on this is the LA. I rather have a chapter book that we can read, answer questions and learn from rather than lots of short stories (that are not very short). But that is the only complaint we have. Thank you for making our transition an easy one.
I love the customized curriculum kits. This is the second one I have ordered for my son (the last one was 2nd grade). The ability to customize his curriculum without having to order from several different companies is great. This year we are especially enjoying the history curriculum. Spelling You See is also really good. My son hates studying spelling words, but Spelling You See allows him to learn to spell while hardly realizing he is learning it. He enjoys the history facts in each lesson as well.
We love this kit! It is so easy to use. Everything that you need is included! We love that there are "fun things and fun activities" included.
