Not sure if it’s what I need

I saw this book at a store and it seemed very appealing. A book containing all the knowledge your kid should know seems like a great guide. However, after I had some time to look through it, I’m not sure we will actually use it.

What Your Fifth Grader Needs to Know: Revised Edition

This is one book from the set "What Your Xth Grader Needs to Know" (X = K through 6) edited by Hirsch Jr. I initially purchased the "Second Grader" one for my 7 year old daughter and recently purchased the complete set (since my son will start kindergarten soon). Each book contains American literature, stories/tales from other countries, American and world history, and other knowledge. My daughter enjoys reading from this set of books before her bed time, and I also learnd quite a bit. I highly recommend this set to parents and elementary school teachers.

What Your Fifth Grader Needs to Know, Revised Edition: Fundamentals of a Good Fifth-Grade Education

I found this book to be very informative not only for young students, but also as a refresher for adults. As a future instructor, I find this book helpful not only for information, but also for "short and interesting" presentational information. It is short and to the point. I recommend the series (all grades) to everyone involved with students regardless of age. I have obtained four of the series for the age groups that I am working with currently.

5th Graders

I never took the CSET test, but I plan to take it next January. This book contains everything you can imagine. It first off with a very good display of stories such as King Author. The history part was the best. It contain great information about the mayas and the incas. Also Europeon history is the best since it going into Henry II and his idea of Trial and Jury, and also King John (the only english king with the name John)with his famous document Magna carta. The math and science is good, but could be better. I just wish they go deeper into detail. It would be better if you can purchasse a textbook over these topics. Overall a vbery good book.

Homeschool helper

As a homeschooling mom, I am looking for guidelines to help my daughter advance from the typical public school curriculum. This book covered all areas and then some. I love the extra attention on literature and poetry that usually isn't covered in schools. It is a great addition to any school work, and helps guide parents very well.
