Goal

The goal of this project is to enhance the science AND reading curriculum of our 5th grade students! 

 

What will be done with my students

These workbooks will be used for their numerous science based passages (almost ALL the nonfiction passages are on a science concept!), as well as in reading whole group and small group instruction.

The books have been used in my Extended Learning Program as a small group tutoring resource. As they were being used, we realized what a valuable resource they were for driving our reading instruction, AND that they reinforce science concepts that will be tested on the SSA!
 

 

Benefits to my students

The benefit to my students is that they are being exposed to many science passages on topics that are covered in fifth grade, as well as topics that were covered previously in third and fourth grades. In fifth grade, the students take the SSA - Science Standards Assessment. This test not only assesses fifth grade standards, but third and fourth as well. The science topics presented in the Ready booklets cover multi-grade concepts that will reinforce any prior knowledge and fill the gaps.

The booklets are also an AMAZING reading resource! Each lesson is aligned to a standard. 

 

Describe the Students

My students astound me everyday. I taught 5th grade last year, and decided to departmentalize. They are amazing young ladies and gentleman, and they DESPERATELY want to make learning gains and to be successful but because most of them are English language learners and/or socioeconomically challenged, they often struggle to make the necessary gains needed each school year.

High Point is considered a "transformation zone." We follow an Instructional Focus Calendar, with standards sometimes switching everyday! Because of this, it is sometimes difficult to use the modules provided by the district.

My school draws from a very low-income community, and due to the financial status of the area and the student population, all students receive free lunch! My school is very lucky to receive Title I funding and corporate donations, and my students are so grateful. High Point is a positive, beautiful, safe environment for children to learn in and I know that our students would be so appreciative of these materials!
