This resource is a compilation of all grammar and vocabulary lessons and activities in the 5th grade Wonders Reading Curriculum for Unit 5. These slides create a visual presentation to help students master 5th grade reading, writing and language standards. The grammar objective for the week is stated in the first slide of the week, so that teachers may refer back to the objective at the start of each lesson.
During my first year using this curriculum, I found that it was very difficult to find all of the resources I needed to teach all reading content. I created these slides as a way to have all grammar and vocabulary lessons in one place that are interactive and engaging.
Through the use of these slides, students engage in activities in small groups, partners, and independently. Students activities include: performing skits, writing poems, creating advertisements, debating, and so on. Students will practice note taking while developing their 5th grade writing and speaking skills and building their vocabularies.
I typically use these slides during a transition back into the classroom. Students may use personal white boards or Reading/Writing notebooks to participate in activities and lessons. Teachers may also simply assign these slides as practice in Google Classroom for students to complete independently or with a partner. If you would like an editable version of these lessons, please let me know! I often like to switch out names for students' names in my class, and it is also nice to allow students to edit the slides if they are to work through them independently.
Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback regarding what you like or what I could do to make them better! Thank you so much!
