Have you ever stressed about spiraling in all the standards your students need to know by year's end? I did. It seemed as soon as a standard was taught and assessed, it was forgotten the next time I came back to it. That's why I spent a year creating this ELA program and providing a way for students to interactively practice and learn the ELA Common Core Power Standards. This program that allows students to practice the 14 most tested standards for 4th grade. It offers 7 different standards twice a week for students to respond to in their journals (synonym/antonym, multimeaning words, Greek & Latin roots, figurative language, prepositional phrases, conjunctions, spelling/ syllables, appositives, quotation marks/editing, capitalize/underline/quotation marks, prefix/suffix, fact/opinion, simple/compound sentences and apostrophes). The format of the questions changes throughout the year to address the various ways they may be asked. Program is used currently with an overhead projector or ELMO, but pages can also be copied and given to students as independent worksheets. Students write responses in their ELA journals in pencil and then when timer sounds, are called up to correct responses on ELMO and again in red pen in their journals. Test scores have been fantastic since I created the spiral review program six years ago! Greatest growth has been demonstrated on the end-of-year state tests because of the high levels of understanding attained by this point in the year. 4th grade is a twice weekly 57 week program with the answer guide following. Preview sheets are in Word Format and have been modified slightly to fit the document.
