Fifth grade language arts continues to build on the language, vocabulary, writing and reading comprehension skills that students have been learning throughout elementary school. This year, students will learn grade-appropriate vocabulary and expand their knowledge on topics like synonyms, antonyms, prefixes and suffixes, just to name a few. In addition, they will learn a number of grammar skills including the correct use of perfect verb tenses, correlative conjunctions, transitions, and more.

This page provides tons of information on what a fifth grade language arts curriculum should teach, what a 5th grader should know, the various 5th grade language arts objectives, and more.

What Language Arts Concepts Should a 5th Grader Know

This year, students will be learning new language arts skills as well as building their knowledge and mastery on previously learned concepts. In order to do that, students should be comfortable reading and answering questions on a wide variety of texts in a number of different themes and topics. In addition, their writing skills should allow them to create concrete ideas complete with supporting details.

Typically, 5th grade language arts students should be able to:

  • Use pronouns in subjective and objective case
  • Use reference material such as dictionaries, glossaries, and thesauruses
  • Apply knowledge and information from texts to make inferences
  • Decode words using prefixes and suffixes
  • Identify and summarize the theme/main idea of a story
