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!
This ELA + Math Morning Work is available for the following grade levels:
This is an informational newspaper-style text perfect to teach your students about Veterans Day and may be used over a few days. The questions are offered in two versions: a bingo game and traditional multiple-choice/short response format
Bingo Bingo sheets are included, which have questions from the article. Students read the informational text about Veterans Day. Then, they answer questions on the bingo grid. The grid comes in 26 different versions. Having each student use a different version of the answer grid will allow you to reinforce the content of the informational text by playing a game of bingo possibly on Veterans Day or at the end of the week. The questions range from vocabulary, finding the main idea, using text features, as well as finding key details.
How to Play: The first page is an answer key, which can be used to play the game of bingo. Cut up each square, place in a Ziploc bag or container of your choice and call out questions. Students must answer the question correctly and have 5 in a row. Up, down, or diagonally. Students can use counters or any treats to keep track of the questions called.
Reading Comprehension Questions:The questions are also in a traditional multiple choice and short answer format. Not all answers are included from the Bingo grid and the questions may be slightly different. You would not need to use BOTH formats – pick one or the other.
Thank You Letter:Paper for students to write a Thank You Letter to a veteran is also included.

This resource includes 44 Notebook Anchor Charts & Word Lists to support your students in developing their Language and Vocabulary Skills in Reading and Writing. Some charts are simply word lists, while others are used to teach a particular skill. Please note that a few charts have interactive components, but not all. The charts come two on a page so that they can be glued into an interactive notebook. Hopefully, this saves you in copies as well! We are always looking for ways to improve our resources to be the best quality and meet your needs. We take pride in our work and are open to suggestions, requests, and feedback on ways to improve the quality of our work. If you find that something is missing or you are looking for a specific chart that is not included, please email us at Jessica@theliteracyloft.com. We will always try our best to meet your needs.
Ideas for Classroom Use I created this product for my 4th Graders to use in their Language and Vocabulary Notebook. We use this chart to support our Reading and Writing. Below are some ideas about how I used the charts.
Reading Centers Support: One of our Reading Centers is Language and Vocabulary. If students are practicing a specific skill using a practice sheet or task cards, they can use the chart to help them remember how to use the specific part of speech, punctuation, etc.
Writing Workshop: I used the charts to teach a mini grammar lesson at the beginning of Writer's Workshop or at the end to help students revise and edit their work. If you do not use a Vocabulary Notebook, students could glue some of the charts in their Writing Notebook to help revise and edit for sentence structure, language, and conventions.
Small Group Reading and Writing: If I noticed all of my students were having difficulty with a particular skill such as Verb Tenses. I used the chart for Verb Tenses to pull a small group and teach this lesson. They used the chart to help them complete an activity independently to identify the correct verb tenses.
Quick Vocabulary & Grammar Lessons: If your day is anything like mine, it is jam-packed! I am forever looking for ways to tuck in language, grammar, and vocabulary lessons. By providing students with a chart, I can quickly teach a short lesson and they have the chart in front of them to practice independently. I have also started to create PowerPoints and practice pages that align to these charts to provide an additional resource for whole group lessons. These are NOT in my store yet, but keep an eye out! :)
These are just a few ideas of how to use this resource in your classroom! I would love to see or hear how this resource works for you! As always, please let me know if you are still looking for something else in this resource. Thank you!
