FREE I Can Common Core Standards for grades kindergarten through 5th grade. These are written in kid friendly language. What a great resource. Love the idea of sharing with parents at conferences or providing for older students to monitor their own progress.
Rick's Reading Workshop: Mini-Lesson…This 5th grade teacher is amazing…this lesson really shows students how to stay "present" when they read. He does it by reading and thinking through a book with the students. LOVE!
Differentiated Multi-step Math Word Problems with Graphic Organizer to support students in solving and explaining their answers. Aligned to 4th grade common core but also great for 5th grade. 6 different sets available individually or as a bundle.
A good video to use with elementary students to do human figures in clay. My fourth grade students did very well with this, with me pausing the video after each part to add more instruction. The examples at the beginning and end of the video helped give my students more ideas.
blogger writes, "5th grade teachers - This read aloud is a MUST!! It tells of the true story of Pocahontas. It goes along great with our social studies curriculum and is fun and interesting for students to listen to. I will be reading this for my second read aloud of the year (and it will be my 6th year of reading it aloud to my students - even I love it!)"
