At The Reading Nook, we have taken the guesswork out of selecting the best children's books by doing the research for you.  Here you will find high quality children's literature recommended by reading experts.  Your fifth grade child is reading more independently now that he is older; however, does your fifth grader need more help with grammar?  What about writing and spelling?  Did you know that reading and being read to greatly improve these basic skills?  Jim Trelease, author of The Read-Aloud Handbook (Penguin Books, 2001) says, "Grammar is more caught than taught, and the way you catch it is the same way you catch the flu: you're exposed to it.  By hearing and seeing the language spoken and written in meaningful sentences, you begin to imitate the pattern.  And how does one improve writing and spelling?  By reading, reading, reading.  Vocabulary and spelling are not learned by looking words up in the dictionary.  You learn the meanings and spellings in the same way teachers learn the names of students: by seeing them again and again, and making the connection between the two.  Nearly everyone spells by visual memory, not rules."

These suggested books can help your fifth grade student with the basics: reading, writing, and spelling.
