Summer Program: Fifth Grade
Games to Build Vocabulary, Writing, and Spelling Skills
VocabularySpellingCity's Summer Program for fifth grade students provides five lessons per week for eight weeks (i.e. 40 daily assignments) to help students in grade five build their literacy skills and keep their minds sharp over the summer.
Online summer lessons include vocabulary, spelling, grammar and writing assignments focusing on a range of subjects appropriate to 5th grade. Each day's lesson is organized around a word list and has four games or activities. The word lists and activities are structured to optimize engagement and learning. Math, science and social studies lists are included and used with definition games, sentence games, or writing activities to engage prior knowledge and build mastery of academic vocabulary.
VocabularySpellingCity's Summer Program for fifth grade students includes two spelling/phonics lessons, a grammar lesson and a vocabulary lesson per week.

Some assignments include summer writing practice as well. All activities and test scores are recorded, and student records may be accessed by parents at any time.
