**Grades 4-5 Version** Level A
The topics included in this huge worksheet packet are the same as in my Interactive Reading Literature Notebook. Scroll down for a list of lessons and topics.
For each of the 24 lessons, there is a 20-item practice, followed by a 20-item assessment. The items on the assessment are similar in content and in format to the items on the practice so that your students are prepared for each assessment.
Most lessons are 2 pages, so I run them front and back and recommend that you do the same whenever possible.
UPDATE: October 2018: These files are now EDITABLE in MS Word, so you can customize them as needed for your own students! Please note that your ability to edit these documents relies upon your fluency in MS Word. I'm sorry that I can't offer technical assistance with this feature. Thanks for your understanding.
This resource is jam-packed with content
specifically designed to practice and assess the lessons in the Interactive Reading Literature Notebook. So that these printables are grade-level appropriate, I am releasing three sets:
Set 1 – Grades 4-5 (Level A)
Each set includes unique content, which means that the questions and passages are all completely different, and leveled, for each packet. If you differentiate in your reading classes, I highly recommend that you purchase all 3 sets. Sets 2 and 3 will be released in the month of November. A bundle is available to purchase all 3 sets here.
Since there are 3 sets and two similar worksheets for each lesson (one practice and one assessment), I have included this information at the bottom right corner of each page It either reads Practice or Assessment, followed by the level. The lesson number and topic are always at the top left.
