Here is some information regarding the fifth grade resources we will be using in ELA this upcoming year!  Stay tuned for updated information!
The reading program we use is called Making Meaning and it provides great opportunities for students to develop a more sophisticated sense of interpretation using a variety of literary works.  This is a great complement to the Being a Writer system that we have introduced across the grade levels.   I had the opportunity to pilot its use in Grade 2 and am quite confident that it will benefit our students in all aspects of their writing.   Both of these programs are really superb; we are lucky to have them!
We use the Spelling Connections program and you can find word lists, teaching games, and interactive activities on the website.  You can access from the link on my Teacherpage or directly at the  site.  There are also plenty of activities on my LINKS section.  Try some out! Have fun!
