Learning from Home with Usborne - 5th Grade

Most of the United States and in other countries as well, schools are closed due to the COVID19 virus threat.  Public schools and probably many, if not all, private schools have implemented their learning from home programs.  Students are sort of half homeschooled and half still in public school as they remain in contact with their teachers for part of the day for a few hours of pubic school instruction.  In response to this widespread pandemic, Usborne Books & More has added a new category to their line of educational books called Learning from Home.  The following books are recommended for students in the 5th grade.

A Year in My Life
A Year in My Life
A kids’ journal quite unlike any other, this beautifully illustrated book invites children to record a year of their life by filling in the 365 quirky drawing and writing activities—one for every day of the year. Activities are fun, quick—so no excuse to miss any days!—and imaginatively offbeat, so journalers might be invited to “Draw a scene that happened today, but give the people animal heads” or “Write down every feeling you remember feeling today” or simply just “Sum up today in a single word.”  At the end of the 365 days, children will end up with an amusing, creative, and offbeat record of a year in their life to treasure in years to come.

Race to the End of the World (Book 1)
Adventure and danger lie just off the edge of the map in this swashbuckling trilogy.
Quinn's older brothers may long for adventure, but he is content with his quiet life on the farm. Destiny, however, has other plans.

The king is determined to create the first map of the world and has scoured the kingdom for boys who could become mapmakers. When Quinn is chosen for the king's training school, he's amazed - but that is nothing compared to his shock when he is selected as one of the three mapmakers and finds himself on board a ship, competing for the big prize.

So begins Quinn's reluctant journey deep into the unknown, with only his photographic memory and skills learned on the farm to help him. He’s on a ship captained by a slave, with a stowaway girl on board – and a mysterious sea monster that seems to be following them. Hot on their trail are the other competitors for the king's prize, who will stop at nothing to win.

Perfect for readers who love stories filled with adventure and suspense, The Mapmaker Chronicles are one-part fantasy, one-part quest, one-part high-seas action. Filled with strong, feisty characters who learn resilience, perseverance and the importance of friendship, each book transports readers to faraway lands.
