Students will reinforce their understanding of grammar in fifth grade, preparing them for more advanced studies of literature in middle school.  We will introduce homeschoolers to predicates, Latin roots, possessives, and reading comprehension.  We will spend a few days covering troublesome words such as sit vs. set, raise vs. rise, and let vs. leave to ensure that students have a basic grasp of which to choose in particular situations.  Homeschool students will learn how to use a dictionary and thesaurus to build their vocabulary and writing techniques as well as double check their writing for mistakes.
