GOOGLE SLIDES AND FORMS: All months (Aug-June) have been updated to include Google Slides and self-grading Google Forms.
This resource is a unique way to get your students warmed up in the morning that helps incorporate the 5th Grade Language Standards, Vocabulary Practice, and Reading Comprehension skills.
Each month contains 4-5 weeks of ELA morning work, which will have a theme around the season, national holidays, or events associated with that particular month. The morning work is focused on ELA 5th Grade Common Core Standards. Each day has a thematic structure to cover those Language Standards as well as enhance Vocabulary and Comprehension skills.
Meaningful Monday: Monday is focused on making meaning. Tasks will focus on synonyms, antonyms, vocabulary words, context clues, and making meaning in a short amount of text. Some tasks may require students to make meaning in the text (inference, message, adages, proverbs, etc) or build vocabulary skills.
Text Structure Tuesday: Tuesdays will have a paragraph that requires students to identify the text structure, signal words, and a question or two related to main idea, author's perspective, or vocabulary.
Wordy Wednesday: Wednesday is all about working with words. Tasks include working with shades of meaning, homophones, or a short writing task using pictures or a word bank.
Throwback Thursday: Thursday is all about grammar usage and conventions.
Figurative Friday: Figurative Friday tasks include working with various types of figurative language including similes, metaphors, idioms, and more!
