What Your Fifth Grader need to know Sep 27, 2007
This is a wonderful book, not only for your children, but for adults as well. I am currently going for my early childhood education degree and I will be taking the GACE exam and this book was recommended to me to help me study. I also have the 1st grade and 2nd grade version of this book...they are also wonderful!!
What Your Fifth Grader Needs to Know, Revised Edition: Fundamentals of a Good Fifth-Grade Education (Core Knowledge Series) Jun 8, 2007
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.

Great book. I found this book to be very reliable on many of the topics learned in the classroom.

This book might be okay for individual study but is kind of boring. I was looking for something I could work with my fifth grader on. I like the 1st grade book but the upper grades seem to lose interest for the reader.
