Why you'll love this resource:
Also, I do want to suggest a great set of reading games which would go well with this reading unit. There is a game for EACH READING STANDARD!!! It comes in a set of 10 for fiction, a set of 10 for nonfiction, or a bundle of 20 reading games specifically for 4th and 5th grades!
If you'd like to focus on idioms in particular, please take a peek at this deeply discounted 3 set bundle of task cards. With 96 task cards, your students will have lots of opportunities to learn a wide variety of idioms.
If you're looking for more reading materials for 4th, and 5th grades, please check these out:
