This bundle is aligned with Treasures 5th Grade Units 1 - 6. This full-year bundle is packed full of engaging activities perfect for whole group, CENTERS, EARLY FINISHERS, HOMEWORK, SUB PLANS, ELA ROTATIONS, & STATIONS. Great for TEST PREP too:)
First, this package contains Fifth Grade CLOZE (fill in the blank) worksheets to teach, re-teach, practice, or assess vocabulary in the fifth grade Treasures anthologies from units 1 through 6 (all units for the entire year- unit names and stories are listed below). 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. We included the key vocabulary words from the following anthologies:
Unit 1 Challenges: Miss Alaineus, Davy Crockett Saves the World, Forests of the World, Ultimate Field Trip 5: Blasting Off to Space Academy), Pipiolo and the Roof Dogs
Unit 2 Discoveries: Shiloh, Rattlers!, Maya Lin, Architect of Memory, The Night of San Juan, Black Cowboy Wild Horses
Unit 3 Turning Points: Sleds on Boston Common, When Esther Morris Headed West, Beyond the Horizon, My Great-Grandmother’s Gourd, Zathura
Unit 4 Experiences: Goin’ Someplace Special, Carlos and the Skunk, Getting Out the Vote, Hurricanes, The Catch of the Day
Unit 5 Achievements: Spirit of Endurance, Westlandia, A Historic Journey, The Unbreakable Code, The Gri Gri Tree
Unit 6 Great Ideas: The Golden Mare, the Firebird, and the Magic Ring, Skunk Scout, A Dream Comes True, Up in the Air: The Story of Balloon Haiku, Hidden Worlds
Second, this package also contains fifth grade crosswords puzzles to teach, re-teach, practice, or assess vocabulary in the fifth grade Treasures reading units 1 though 6. Each unit contains a crossword puzzle, answer key, and word bank for each story in each unit (stories and units shown above). We have used these puzzles to challenge students, to enrich and engage learning, and as a center or centers with teacher or parent helpers to teach and provide practice for reading vocabulary and definitions.
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.
These worksheets are also included within our Treasures Unit Products.
