At last, Literacy Centers designed specifically for Fifth Grade students that will help on their reading journey.
These centers coordinate with the 5th grade Journeys series published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt*. The centers can stand on their own and you do not have to be using this reading text book in order to use the centers in your classroom.
There are six literacy centers for each of the five weeks. Set 6 is for weeks 26-30. The literacy centers in this packet are designed to give your students time to practice the literacy skills and strategies that have been presented in class lessons. You do not have to use all six centers every week. Choose the centers that meet the needs of your students and your curriculum.
