Most people would recommend size 5 for av5th grader but if you are 5 feet or taller you should use size 6.
Typically for that age girls use the womens size or 28.5.
If your a TRUE basketball player, you should automatically be able to tell if it is a 29.5 (size 7) basketball, BUT, if not, you can ask the person in the store, or it should say size 7 somewhere on the ball.
styrofoam can kill animals on earth and in the ocean. try not to use it p.s writen by 5th grader

I would like to know who's asking about whose books these are.
A size 28.5 would do just fine. but make sure that its as full as it will go or as bouncy as you want it.
Yes, the ring is the same size for women as for men. However, women use smaller balls.
I'm 12. It's true that a 29.5 size basketball would make his game improve, but that would be a training ball for him because a training ball is a size bigger basketball then the one recommended for someone. 28.5 is the right size. I keep 2, a outdoor training ball (29.5) and a indoor regular ball (28.5).
If you mean what sized basketball, then it is a size 6 for any girls playing representative basketball, and size six for boys playing representative basketball until under 16's at which stage they will up-size to a size seven ball. in some organizations grade 1 and 2 use size 5 but the rule varies.
Check into the school systems to see what they offer. Some schools will offer after school tutoring, or offer tutors that have you use online technology. Also check and see what the local colleges are offering, they may have tutors that are very inexpensive to help you with your 5th grader. Another option is www.readandsucceed.com. My 6th grader just enrolled, and they are free and online.
