Fifth Grade Reading Room 203
Welcome to the Grade 5 Reading site. I've included information about the main components of our class along with links to some of the reference pages you will use throughout the year. Please refer to this home page for information about assignment due dates, vocabulary activities and book club meeting dates.
November 28- December 2
Students will work independently and in small groups this week to prepare for a quiz over the vocabulary units 1, 2, 3 and 4. Part one of the quiz will consist of matching words with meanings using the same format found on each of the unit practice sheets. Students will be allowed to use the master list of word parts (green sheet) for this part of the quiz. Part two will involve writing a definition or a sentence for a few of the vocabulary words chosen at random from each list. Students should find opportunities to use the vocabulary words in conversation whenever possible to help prepare for this part of the review. The quiz is scheduled for the final class of this week. Groups 1 and 3 will have the quiz on Thursday. Groups 5, 6, 7 and 8 will take the quiz on Friday.
Each group will choose a book this week to read for the next set of book club meetings.
We are also working to support the reading expectations of the Social Studies Seven Wonders of the World project. Students are using strategies specific to reading for information while learning details from the fact cards used for the Social Studies unit of instruction.
