The variety of testing exercises (including correct sentences interspersed with incorrect sentences) ensures that you have an accurate measure of your child’s understanding of language skills. The 11 tests (including 3 cumulative examinations) and 12 quizzes over grammar, writing, and research skills are correlated with God’s Gift of Language B Writing and Grammar Work-text, 3rd ed., and the Home School Language Arts 5 Curriculum/Lesson Plans. Answers and grading instructions are sold separately in God’s Gift of Language B Quiz and Test Key. Grade 5.
Students refine all skills in The Abeka® Language Artts Grade 5 (Level B), aiming for varied reading and writing (emphasizing research skills). A complete Language Arts program requires both a Child and a Parent Kit. Child Kits contain the texts, readers, and all essential materials. Parent Kits include full lesson plans, answer keys, and level-based required materials. Additional lesson plans, student consumables, and reinforcement/enrichment ELA items are available on the Rainbow Resource website.
The Abeka® distinctives start very early and flow through all levels, such as a cursive-first handwriting approach (starts in K and reviewed up to 6), thorough grammar (with diagramming), foundation-based composition skills (begins in 1st grade) and listening/speaking skills (including reading aloud and poetry memorization). All with Christian, patriotic-focused content in a spiral format with detailed teacher instruction. In 1st grade, skills introduced in previous years (phonics/reading, optional cursive, poetry, and vocabulary skills) are enriched with creative writing and sentence-level mechanics, weekly spelling tests, and oral reading. In Grade 2, transition to reading comprehension and beginning literature analysis occurs. Grade 3 begins the four-pronged emphasis of reading skills (analysis & discussion), writing (academic & creative), spelling/poetry, and grammar. Grade 4 (Level A) adds speed reading, the writing process, researching, and diagramming. Students refine all skills in Grade 5 (B), aiming for varied reading and writing (emphasizing research skills), as they head for Grade 6 (C), which cements the elementary skills in preparation for Abeka® upper-level courses.
Language arts programs listed in this section cover most areas of language arts (reading/literature, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting) in one curriculum, although some skill areas may be covered with less intensity than a focused, stand-alone course.
