• Grade 5 Literacy Description


    Word Study documents include a scope and sequence for the Working With Words block. Resources include the Nifty Thrifty Fifty word list, Word Wall Template and suggested Chants. Fifth grade documents also include a Working With Words Block Training Tool and Common Understandings.

    Common Core State Standards provide the structure for eight performance-based units of study. Close Read units developed by our Basal Alignment Project team make up four of these units. Genres studied include poetry, fiction and an increasing emphasis on informational literature in an effort to increase middle-school readiness.

    Competencies for each unit will be addressed through guided and independent practice throughout the block framework.
