No-prep, 5th grade reading "true stories" reading skill practice! With this resource, students will read interesting stories about famous people that are rarely told. After each passage students will respond to critical thinking reading questions directly aligned to the 5th Grade Common Core Reading Standards, but suitable to any 5th Grade Curriculum.The “true stories” have been collected to motivate students to want to learn about historical events and leaders in our country as well as become more critical readers. I have listed the standards that correlate to each story.
The passages could be used as daily warm-ups, sponge activities, reviews or part of a history unit that integrates language arts with social studies. I have tried to compile as many standards as possible in the twelve “true” stories in an authentic way in order for students to make the appropriate connections.
