This Back-to-School packet will get you through your first week or two of school! It is ideal for 5th grade students. The lessons include language arts, community building, and mathematics activities. Your students will have fun as they get back in the swing of things at school!
The bundle includes:
Getting to Know You Page with Interview Questions
Adjective Illustration "About Me" for each student
Several pages of math review, including skills such as multiplication, addition, fractions, word problems, and rounding numbers (to the ones and tenths place)
Some journal writing prompts
A narrative writing activity entitled, "Favorite Summer Memory"
Math games to be played using dice
Getting to Know You games to build community
A parts of speech (noun and verb review) activity
Synonym and Antonym usage with a thesaurus
Facts Versus Opinions
I use this packet throughout the first week or two of school. I don’t believe it should be given in one setting, as the kids would become quite tired! Instead, I break it apart to be used over several days. I also use the math games throughout the year, and make them progressively harder as we learn new concepts (such as multi-digit multiplication).
This packet also includes my 5th grade Common Core writing bundle (both the narrative and opinion writing lessons). They are complete with student samples, brainstorming pages, checklists, and more!
Please do NOT purchase this if you have already purchased the 5th grade Common Core bundle or individual opinion or narrative writing lesson from me. Thank you!!
