Hi, I will have a couple 5th graders this year (one-room school) and was wondering what a typical 5th grade language arts program includes. In 1st-4th we did Language, Spelling, Phonics, Reading and Writing Workshop. I used Vowac Phonics which doesn't have a 5th grade level. I would like to have more focus on reading comprehension/response, vocabulary development, and writing. Any suggestions? I don't really know what "normal" schools do for 5th grade!
