I’ve structured this page for those who like to piece together their own curriculum but I know there are a lot of people (seems like most I encounter) who just appreciate to find a trusted curriculum that will package it all together for them in a box for a reasonable price. If that is you, this is my best recommendation: Memoria Press Fifth Grade Classical Core Complete Set.

Memoria Press Fifth Grade Classical Core Curriculum

For those eclectic folks who like a bit from this and a bit from that, look down below to get ideas from my best suggestions from varying different curriculums. All curriculums mentioned below I have used and loved.


Suggested Summer Reading (before 6th grade): The Story of the World, Vol. 2

Concerning Composition: Students should complete Classical Composition I before moving on to Classical Composition II:Narrative. Please consult our Classical Composition Sequence Chart if you have any questions.

Fifth Grade Read-Aloud Set

We focus on geography in grades 3-6 in our Classical Core Curriculum because it is beneficial for students to know where the historical events they study take place in the context of each other. But we realize that the grammar school years are a great time to introduce American history too. So we offer four sets of American biographies and novels as a supplement to our 3rd through 6th grade Classical Core packages.
