Item Description...
Provides parents with instructions to help educate their children, covering reading, writing, math, science, and social studies for fifth graders.

Publishers Description
This brand-new and important workbook gives parents easy-to-apply methods for educating their fifth-grade children, whether as home schoolers with parents taking full control of their childA's studies, or as parents cooperating with their childA's teachers in standard classroom settings. The book gives parents guiding principles for teaching reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. Pages are perforated for multipurpose use, which can include independent learning by children or shared learning when kids and parents work together. Four curriculum sections are designed to guide teaching parents: Promoting literacyA-reading, writing, listening, and speaking . . . MathA-number patterns, problem solving, and other math-related concepts . . . ScienceA-life, earth, and physical sciences . . . and Social StudiesA-history, geography, economics, and culture. Each section outlines subject matter for children to learn, preceded by planning and implementation strategies for parents. Parents get advice on ways to enhance the childA's learning experience. They include Teaching Tips, or ways to explain difficult concepts to children, and ways to assess a childA's success in grasping the given material. There is also advice on integrating the Arts, with suggestions for interactive learning in music and art; and activities and Games to promote hands-on learning experiences that relate to specific subject content. In each subject section a special feature titled In Your Community describes ways to explore the community where the family lives, taking advantage of local cultural affairs, business activities, environmental concerns, and government functions. Though the book is written primarily for parents, fifth-grade classroom teachers looking for new ideas and methods will also find inspiration. This book is one of three titles that introduce teaching methods and offer practical curriculum guides for different grade levels: grades three, five, and six. Additional titles for other KA-6 grades are currently in preparation. All books feature maps, photos, and illustrations, many in color.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not what I was looking for...  Dec 7, 2007
The details about it were misleading and I ended up returning it. It would be useful if I was looking for lesson plan ideas but I wasn't.
Appears to be a good book, but there are many errors in it.  Dec 5, 2006
This book for the most part seems to be a good teaching tool, however there are errors in the math assessment given at the end of the lessons. There are two problems given that they have solved incorrectly. Also, the answer key is not very useful as several of the answers given are incorrect. One problem in the test asks for the perimeter of a rectangle, however the answer key gives the answer for the area of the rectangle. It takes up too much time to have to verify which answers are correct in the book and which are incorrect. It makes me question the quality of the content of the rest of the book.
Making the Grade is a Good Resource and Practice Tool  Oct 12, 2005
Making the grade is an excellent resource. There are practice pages to help my child better understand the subject(s) she is learning in school. The book has been a great resource for me to turn to when helping her with her homework.
Good supplement  Sep 16, 2005
This was a good supplement to an already swamped homeschooling mom. The lessons are broken down into finer components and very well meshed together to teach the whole of the subject at hand.

I enjoy the structure of all these books in this series. This one touches on subjects perhaps I wasn't aware of that children this age should know or subjects that I needed refreshing up on.

There are many ideas and spring board activities that can be made from this book. It is a definite recommendation for homeschoolers or parents (even teachers!) that need to give their children a boost in confidence, knowledge and studies.
Finally, a workbook that won't bore a kid!  Jul 21, 2004
I bought this book for my little brother who was having some difficulty in school. The summer break would put him even more behind so in search of an activity book, a fell upon this one, and I have to say it's one of the more intresting work books out there. It's not about ripping out a sheet and hoping they get the answers right. With this book, I've learned how to help my brother learn the new and old concepts a little better. Writing, reading,, it's all in there! He was actually having fun. And let's face it. If they're not having fun, they're not going to learn. I recommend this book to anyone whose looking for a new approach to teaching their own kids. (God, I sound like an infomercial.)
