This 5th Grade Interactive English Language Arts journal includes everything you need to get your ELA journals going in the right direction. When I say mini I mean that it doesn't have an interactive activity for each and every single standard. It's a large resource. I used a similar version last year in my 4th Grade class and I have been adding things all summer to make it even better!
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE DESCRIPTION AND DOWNLOAD THE PREVIEW FILE AND ASK ANY QUESTIONS!! Thanks!!
It's in an easy to follow order with the Common Core standards aligned to specific vocabulary words. Each part of the Common Core (Literature, Informational Text, Foundational Skills, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language) is broken down to make your life more simplified. ALL Standards are included in this packet, but some may not be listed on the product page. This is a 100 page document that provides you with ways to guide your journals daily/weekly. Each time you teach a lesson this journal can be used for note taking and creating new journal entries with each "I Can" statement for the fifth grade ELA common core included in a cut out form. A good chuck of this document is the "I Can" statements in a cut-out form for your students to use with journal entries each time they take notes while learning something new. Students can easily cut and paste each one into their journals when you teach it. Each day you cover an "I can" statement, you can use this interactive tool to guide students into a better understanding of the core content and improve their writing all year long. Students take vocabulary notes that connect to the "I Can" statement for that day. Then wrap it up by completing 1 of the 11 interactive activities I've came up with to add to your class.
You can also use the 21 extra foldables to add more interactive activities to your journals-of course you'll have to get crafty! If that isn't enough, turn to the back of the packet and look at the sheet that gives you 10 more ways to make your journals interactive and beneficial. The ELA Common Core vocabulary is included in a teacher friendly guide to make taking notes a snap.
