Dive into "The Stories We are Told": Hearth & Story’s fifth grade thematic core invites students to embark on a profound journey through four novels in which young protagonists confront the pervasive narratives that society weaves around them. These compelling stories delve into the tales society tells us about identity, class, ways of knowing, history, and the mechanisms shaping our world.

Explore Poetry Without the Fuss: In Hearth & Story’s Fifth Grade Poetry homeschool course, the magic of poetry will come to life within the walls of your home. Enter the enchanting world of poetry with our warm and welcoming program that's designed especially for fifth grade homeschool students. Some students shy away from poetry because it can be challenging to understand and often features old-fashioned language or stodgy themes. At Hearth & Story, we recognized this issue and curated a special list of thirty poems and twenty literary term flashcards featuring a variety of engaging topics specifically designed to resonate with young creative minds… and without a lot of the “thou” and “doth” stuff we often associate with poetry class. Each poem comes with both a homeschool lesson and a simple coloring page students can work on while discussing the poem, allowing students to add their own personal touches to these literary treasures.


Delve into the Works of Hans Christian Andersen: Our fifth grade short story series include three timeless tales by Hans Christian Andersen— "The Emperor's New Clothes," "The Steadfast Tin Soldier," and "The Nightingale.” These units include the full text of each story as well as thought-provoking questions, engaging writing activities, and other fun exercises that transform reading time into a delightful adventure. These tales are designed to spark creativity and critical thinking, making them an integral and memorable part of your homeschool literature journey.
