Looking for a way to get your kids to actually do their reading or
This weekly system involves one short, 2-3 paragraph reading about
a 5th grade NGSS topic. Each reading is an overview of the topic
which could be used as either an introduction or review.
There is one passage per topic. Potentially 5 weeks work of homework in all.
This could also be used as a small group activity using stations.
The reading has daily writing response questions (Monday-Thursday)
which require students to go back into the text and think deeply about
the topic. You could also read this to your class on Fridays and have a discussion
about the vocabulary before assigning it for the next week.
The beauty of this system is the pacing.
Students can choose to do each assignment on the given day
or complete it based around their own schedule.
Either way, all four days are handed in on Friday to be graded.
Some of the ELA concepts practiced with the questions include: making inferences, identifying main idea and details, and working with cause and effect.
I have included an answer key but several of the questions are open-ended so student
answers may vary.
