This packet contains fifth Grade CLOZE (fill in the blank) worksheets to teach, re-teach, practice, or assess vocabulary in the fifth grade Common Core Journeys 2014 Edition from units 1 through 6 (all units for the entire year- each unit and story are listed below).
Please Note: We also have the 2011 version of this product in our store.
Also included is the corresponding answer key for each worksheet. When we developed these worksheets we used all of the key vocabulary words and some supplemental words. Some of the words were used within the context of each story, and some of the words we used outside of the story’s context to challenge the students and their understanding of each word’s definition. Vocabulary development is a key focus area in the new Common Core Standards, because students must increase their knowledge of academic language by growing their vocabulary. These worksheets align with the Common Core Standards for Language Arts under Language: Conventions, effective use and vocabulary, understanding words and their relationships, and acquisition of new vocabulary. We included the key vocabulary words from the following anthologies:
Unit 1 – School Spirit!: “A Package for Mrs. Jewls”, “A Royal Mystery”, “Off and Running”, “Double Dutch: A Celebration of Jump Rope, Rhyme, and Sisterhood”, “Elisa’s Diary”
Unit 2 – Wild Encounters: “Quest for the Tree Kangaroo”, “Old Yeller”, “Everglades Forever: Restoring America’s Great Wetland”, “ Storm Warriors”, “Cougars”
Unit 3 - Revolution!: “Dangerous Crossing”, “Can’t You Make Them Behave, King George?”, “They Called Her Molly Pitcher”, “James Forten”, “We Were There, Too!”
Unit 4 – What’s Your Story?: “Lunch Money”, “LAFFF”, “The Dog Newspaper”, “ Darnell Rock Reporting”, “The Black Stallion”
Unit 5 – Under Western Skies: “Tucket’s Travels”, “The Birchbark House”, “Vaqueros: America’s First Cowboys”, “ Rachel’s Journey”, “Lewis and Clark”
Unit 6- Journey to Discovery: “Animals on the Move ”, “Mysteries at Cliff Palace”, “Fossils: A Peek Into the Past”, “The Case of the Missing Deer!”, “Get Lost! The Puzzle of Mazes”
These worksheets are also included within our Common Core Journeys 2014 Edition Unit Products.
