This is a tool your students can use to track their OWN PROGRESS! Fifth graders will become familiar with Common Core Objectives in relatively kid-friendly language. All ELA standards for Language are covered in this document. Students will shade in boxes based on their progress. There are three levels of student knowledge starting with BEGINNING. As they progress they will shade in DEVELOPING and finally when they have mastered the concept they will shade in MASTERY. All 5th grade common core language objectives are covered. My students add this to their three-ring binder and track their progress throughout the year. They must be able to explain their thinking each time they make progress and prove mastery with each concept. Mastery is shown on assessments, during conferences with students, or on any classroom assignment or project. This will go great with my language assessment pack!
