Fifth Grade Common Core Assessments

I know, another test? Right? Well, we tried to make it as painless as possible with these quick assessments for each standard in our Fifth Grade Common Core Assessments workbook. The truth is, you NEED to test, even if you hate it. Why not make it as simple as possible with ready-made tests, answer keys, and progress reports, so you can get back to teaching and reviewing then? That way you’ve satisfied all the duties you need to while keeping teaching momentum. At 100 pages long, this is pretty short considering all these standards are being tested:

ELA areas assessed: Reading Literature, Reading Informational Text, Reading Foundational Skills, Language, Writing, Speaking & Listening

MATH areas assessed:  Operations and Algebraic Thinking, Numbers and Operations in Base Ten, Geometry, Measurement and Data

Common Core Resources for Homeschool

Every school in the nation, or nearly every state and district, is in one way, shape, or form switching to common core. Some states are doing their own version, but nearly all states have adopted the national standards. What does that mean for homeschooled students? Since most homeschool students still have to take some state assessments, and since those assessments will be soon – if they are not already – aligned to the new national standards instead of old state standards, what is being taught at home might not be adequate anymore. Students might take those state tests and be unprepared for them. The changes might not seem too deep on the surface, but they have reexamined and realigned the way in which students learn, especially the WHEN part of that equation, even if teachers still have some freedom as to the HOW.

Our common core standards workbooks fit into any program. Some might use it as a supplement or as additional practice, but it also works for remediation, or as a core educational material to be supplemented with homeschool lessons and research projects. Take a look at our free samples to see if what we have fits with your homeschool student’s learning.

How to Use the Fifth Grade Common Core Workbook

How to Use the Fifth Grade Common Core Workbook

This 5th grade book is, by a little bit, our largest one. It clocks in at over 900 pages. This is partially because the older students need more engaging activities and more involved resources. We have some serious games in this book that can make for great centers or even whole-class reviews and nice filler activities for 15-45 minutes here and there on those weird schedule days. Yes, we know you’ll use some of these activities during your core instruction or for supplementation, but how about some games for the whole class? Those 5th graders get competitive! How about breaking the class into teams or having some group challenges for some of this?

For Language:

  • Flip-A-Chip: We have some activities on matching idioms to their meanings that could easily be a great team challenge. This activity has 2 modes to help teach figurative language and vocabulary.
  • Ping Pong: The teams match multiple meaning words or test themselves on new vocabulary
  • Tweeter: Students practice adding details and summarizing in this cute version of the popular online messaging site.
  • Research & Report: ready-made multi-subject cards help you set up some team or individual research projects
  • Scrabble: A spelling game like the popular board game but with 5th grade vocab words
  • Are you Smarter than a 5th grader?: challenge your own 5th graders with these multi-subject question and answer cards

For Math:

  • Graphing Patterns: Use X/Y in/out boxes to have teams graph lines
  • Dancing Decimals: practice exponents, decimal places, and place value with this game
  • Round and Round: Practice rounding numbers to the nearest whole number, tenth, or hundredth
  • Monster Mingo: a multiplication bingo game!
  • Risk!: A division board game
  • It’s PBJ Time!: Practice your fractions with this game!

And this is just the tip of the iceberg, folks. Don’t forget we have an activity for EVERY language and math standard, as well as graphic organizers, worksheets, and other resources that support learning those standards.

 

For more ideas, take a look at our free previews of the Fifth Grade Common Core Workbook to find things that you can use in your room in your own particular style. Every teacher has their own way of doing things, and we just want to support you! Hopefully it’s an adventure for everyone involved.

What is Common Core?

What is Common Core?

What is Common Core?

The Common Core Standards can be confusing, frustrating, and stressful for teachers, parents, and even the kids. Nearly every state in the country is adopting the common core standards in one fashion or another, but what is common core really?

Common Core is a set of standards designed to make sure that students are receiving a similar education no matter where they live. Previously, certain skills might be taught in one state at different grade level than in another. Students who move from city to city, county to county, or state to state might all be at very different levels because of what was taught and when it was taught! This made for a very uneven testing field.

To combat this, most every state has adapted a common group of core skills that students should learn at age and developmentally-appropriate grade levels. So, a student that lives in one state should be learning similar materials, if perhaps in a different method, than one living in another state. This still leaves room for teacher creativity and regional differences, but the same basic concepts are taught universally.

Read below for more specific details on what standards are being taught at each grade level and how they are organized.

Common Core Ideas

You know, common core does not have to be scary and painful for either teachers or students. If we understand the standards and how they are broken apart, we can attack each piece with fun and exciting ideas. Often, we will find that this is not NEW stuff, but rather a reorganized way to look at what we have already been teaching in years past. Your personal challenge for today (or this week, month, or year…) is to take each of these domains, look at them, and think about your favorite activity that fits into each one. If you can’t think of anything, ask a peer! Then, find lots of other ideas in our common core workbooks.
