What should be taught to 5th grade home school students?
Teach them to like learning. Show them nature and connect it to what is in the textbooks.
If they like to learn, they will be the ones to teach themselves and self learning is a very important skill. Teach them to help others and to seek out their dreams.
Everything they learn now will determine what they want to do in the future. A kid who is exposed to a lot of video games will probably go in the direction of computers or gaming but they may be so addicted that they won't do any studying at all.
A kid who is exposed to nature a lot may be interested in science, astronomy, biology, etc.
First and foremost, don't get too impatient with them and if they don't understand, don't scream at them. Even now in college, I still have an automatic feeling of annoyance whenever I'm around my dad because for a long time, he screamed and beat me for not understanding his math.
Thank you very much I have been home schooling my son for the last 3 years because he is highly mature for a 10 year old and teach him 3 grade levels at a time to keep him from becoming bored. I am always trying to come up with ideas for learning.
Your local school district can tell what the curriculum is and what the textbook list is for 5th-6th-7th graders at a public school. If they aren't communicative, try asking at a local private school where they might be a little more friendly. Whatever answer you get, you can use that as the minimal curriculum for your own kids.
It's great to supplement regular classroom learning with hands on experiences outside the home and relate it to what they've learned before. I think one of the best things to encourage learning and critical thinking skills is simply to have conversations with your children. Ask them what they think about things, what they've learned, what they are interested in learning more about.
If you're not doing a Christian based home school curriculum, you might find these links for free secular home schooling resources helpful:

Thank you, Yes I have already exhausted all my resources in our little town and I have been going online and buying his books and printing out his work. The school doesn't care for the way I teach my child for he is too advanced for a 10 year old.
Go to your state education website. On the website should be a print out of what every grade level should know. Print this out, write on it if you wish. But follow it. Plan out what your child should learn to graduate high school for the next couple of years as is the usual homeschool goal.
