This is the scope and sequence or "year at a glance" I have created and used for my district for all 5th grade.
I have been a firth grade teacher for 3 years and have used this scope and sequence every year. It allows me to have taught all TEKS prior to the STAAR test and it has time incorporated for review!!!
I attribute my students great STAAR scores due to this framework and the time allotted for review.
The last two units are Adaptations and Life Cycles. I have given 2 weeks for each unit but I have been able to teach each unit in 1 week allowing for even more time for review at the end.
It contains the order and time frame for each TEKS that should be taught. Each TEK is in categorized units.
This is a great resource for teachers working at charter schools, private schools, or an other school that gives teachers the freedom to design their own curriculum as the school year progresses.
It is based on a 37 week school year not including the school holiday weeks.
