Product Description
Teach students how to construct the meaning of words and phrases with this bundle, which contains multiple resources. I created these resources to address CCSS RL.5.4 and RI 5.4: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes.

I created these resources after a friend asked me if I had any materials that would address RL and RI 5.4. When I first glanced at the standard, I immediately thought of the context clues, inference, and figurative language bundles I already have listed in my store. However, when I lstudied the standard a bit more closely, and read through her district's assessment for this standard, I realized that none of my previously-created materials proved to be a good match for teaching this standard. As a result, I decided to create these resources in a way that I felt would best match the standards.

This bundle includes:
1. a 46-slide PowerPoint, which includes 8 practice passages!
2. a 5-page matching PowerPoint companion handout
3. 24 task cards Students read a passage, and then answer the three multiple choice questions that follow. (8 passages are included.)
4. 2 worksheets with sentence starters Students read one fiction passage and one nonfiction passage, and then answer the questions that follow by writing complete sentences.
5. a 2-passage assessment Students read one fiction and one nonfiction passage, and then answer the mutliple choice questions that follow.
6. 5 days of Lesson Plans This document shows how I intend to use these resources over a 5-day period.
7. 1 Partner Play After reading the script with a partner, students can work together to answer the follow-up questions in which they write the meaning of the underlined words in the scripts.

One more note... I created these with the fifth grade standards in mind, but I know that 4th grade and 6th grade have nearly identical standards. I believe these materials could be used as a strong base to teach CCSS RL.4.4 and RI 4.4 as well as CCSS RL.6.4 and RI 6.4. (Fourth and sixth grade teachers may need to add a few pieces to address allusions to Greek mythology (4th grade) and connotations (6th grade).
