·Every standard listed has an assessment and a cover page with space to document the pre/post-assessment score and the "I can" statements.

Check out the 30+ page preview for a closer look at some of what is included in these assessments.

To be honest... I went back and forth over purchasing this. It was A LOT of money for me to spend on one item. I kept telling myself... is it worth it??? Well, yes it is! I am asked to create all my own assessments. It is pretty stressful and time consuming. Having some of the work done has been just a life saver. You have helped me to create high quality assessments and lessons. Thanks so much!

Looking forward to using this with my 6th graders. My current curriculum is over 10 years old and doesn't translate well to common core. I'm starting from scratch creating tests to meet the new standards. I hope you create a 6th grade version in the future.

Holy smokes I love this. I debated buying it all of my Winter break because of the price. When I finally decided to purchase it, I discovered I'm sad I discovered it half way through the year! Next year I will be using it from the get go. Great resources that have helped guide my teaching, especially as a new teacher. I don't always get to use the resources and assessment in it due to time restraints, bu when I do I'm never disappointed at the quality.

The more I make my way through this bundle the more I realize it has. Amazing resource! And the fact that you wrote the informative pieces for the reading informational part is crazy. There really is something for every standard. I am using it with the Coach book for CCSS. My school doesn't have a reading series, so this has been a life saver. Wish I found it months ago. Thank you.

I see that you have added a Table of Content but when I print it for my binder to keep, it would be nice to have page numbers. Also, I don't know if it was done intentionally or if it was an accident but some of the questions for the story, Tunnel are not with the other questions. It is on page 37, after the next story.

Miss Nannini,

I absolutely LOVE your time and devotion to education! I have most of your products and appreciate your efforts greatly! I was wondering if your district or you yourself follow a pacing guide/ curriculum map throughout the year. Would you be willing to share this with me as our district is making changes to ours to fit the common core. I would appreciate any insight you may have to offer!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 7, 2014Kristine Nannini answered:
Hello! Thank you so much for your kind words! They mean so much! I currently do not have a curriculum map for either math or ELA. I tend to think this is a good thing, because it allows me to be flexible and teach to my students' needs. I just always make sure I roughly plan out the standards for the year and modify this plan as I go, to make sure I'm covering every standard and not leaving anything out. Make sense? I do know that EngageNY has some pretty intense curriculum maps that have received some mixed reviews from New York teachers. If your district is really looking for some intense maps, you may want to check these out. I hope this helps! Don't hesitate to email me at nannini.kristine@yahoo.com if you need more help! Have a great day!

On  December 4, 2013Made for the Middle (TpT Seller) asked:
I have seen the questions about sixth grade (I also teach sixth). Would you recommend purchasing the fifth grade version anyway and adapting it sixth? Or, would you wait until a time you (hopefully) get the chance to create a sixth grade version? I just wasn't sure how easy it was to adapt this and if it would be worth it. I have seen the wonderful feedback and am very interested in this and the student data tracking binder. Thanks for any advice.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 4, 2013Kristine Nannini answered:
Hello! Thanks so much for your question! I do 100% believe you can adapt this for your students. The 5th and 6th grade standards are different, but each grade level builds on the next. In my own classroom I have used grades 3, 4, and 5. Not all of my students are reading at a 5th grade level. Also, I have had many teachers write to me to tell me they are using all of the content for lessons, and extra practice instead of an assessment. So, if you find the standards are that different, that is always an option! I hope this helps! Let me know if I can help you with anything else! Have a great night!

I can't find anyone who has really focused on making 5.rl.9 have you created anything like this or do you have a decent amount in this packet?

Can you help me to better understand your R.F5.3 section. Are there actual phonics lessons attached to specific words?

Thanks so much,
Jackie
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 9, 2013Kristine Nannini answered:
Hi Jackie- Thanks so much for your questions! First, for 5.RL.7 I have images, a clickable video, and a passage that students use to understand the use of multimedia elements and how they contribute to the meaning and tone/mood of the text. For 5.RL.9, the standard doesn't call for poetry, but instead for students to compare and contrast stories in the same genre (e.g. mysteries, adventure stories, etc.). For this standard, I have two passages that fall under the genre of adventure stories/mythology that students compare and contrast. Lastly, for standard 5.RF.3, I don't have any "lessons" because this is an assessment, but I have teaching notes for every standard in this entire document. For 5.RF.3 I include assessments in which students decode and define multisyllabic words, irregularly spelled words, and roots and affixes. I hope this helps! :) If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to email me at nannini.kristine@yahoo.com. Thanks so much! Have a great day!

I was just wondering about how many questions are there for each reading passage?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 22, 2013Kristine Nannini answered:
Hello! Each section is different. In both the Reading Literature and Reading Informational section each standard has 5 questions with about 2 to 3 multiple choice and 2 to 3 constructed response questions for each standard. The Language assessment has assessments for each substandard (5.L.1a, 5.L.1b, 5.L.1c, etc.) and there are 10 questions for each substandard. For the Reading Foundational Skills section there aren't "assessment questions" but instead fluency passages and decoding words/definitions, etc. For each of these sections there are 3 fluency passages of increasing difficulty and 3 decoding words/definitions of increasing difficulty. For the Writing section there are 3 writing prompts for the main standards (5.W.1, 5.W.2, 5.W.3) with 4 levels of continuum answer key papers, for the substandards (5.W.1a, 5.W.1b, 5.W.1c, etc.) there are partially completed writing papers that the students are to complete. For the rest of the writing standards, I believe I have included a letter in the preview that spells out exactly what is in the writing section. Last, for the Speaking and Listening section I have rubrics with scoring sheets (that you can also read about/see in the preview). I hope this makes sense!! :) Feel free to email me at nannini.kristine@yahoo.com if you have more questions. Thanks! Take care!

Do you happen to have the Lexile level of each passage? Thanks
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 12, 2013Kristine Nannini answered:
Thanks so much for your question. I have checked every passage on the Lexile Leveler as well as the Questar DRP (Degree of Reading Program) Analyzer. Every passage has a Lexile range of about 850L to 1010 L. According to the updated Lexile Leveler for the 2013 Common Core Standards, the text measured for a 5th grade student should fall anywhere from 830L to 1010L. According the the Questar DRP Analyzer, the passages fall between a DRP value of 52-63. Obviously I did my best to meet the wide range of readers in the classroom and keep them rigorous enough to meet the needs of the Common Core. I hope this helps!

Thank you for your purchases! I always recommend putting in a ticket to TpT. They are fabulous with helping you out! In the meantime, here is what I recommend:

If you are a Mac user, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader X. If doing that doesn't work, try these options:
-If you're a Mac user, switch browsers (if you're currently using Firefox, try using Internet Explorer or Safari).
-Make sure you check Adobe under "open with" to verify that that Adobe is the program you're using to open the document and not "preview".
-Try opening the document from an entirely different computer (open directly from TpT)

Like I mentioned above, your best bet is to contact TpT's customer service. They are awesome at helping out with this kind of stuff! Please let me know if you still need more help. Take care!
