Barron's Common Core Success: Grade 5 English Language Arts
The recent implementation of Common Core Standards across the nation has offered new challenges to teachers, parents, and students.The Common Core Successseries gives educators, parents, and children a clear-cut way to meet"and exceed"those grade-level goals. Unlike other dry, text-heavy guides on the market, our workbooks offer fun, four-color illustrations and artwork that pull children in and make learning fun. Our Grade 5 English Language Arts (ELA) workbook is specifically designed to mirror the way teachers actually teach in the classroom. It includes:
- "Unpack the Standard" sections to reinforce lessons and engage students in a meaningful way
- Units divided into thematic lessons and designed for self-guided study
- "Stop and Think" sections throughout, consisting of "Review," "Understand," and "Discover"
Students will find a wealth of practical information"presented in a colorful, engaging way"that will help them master the Common Core.
Colorful illustrations and photos are just one thing that separates these workbooks from other similar resources. Units are divided into thematic lessons designed for a student to work independently. Topics are engaging and encourage kids to learn, review and apply skills. Both the ELA (English and Language Arts) and Math books provide special activities where children review, understand and discover what they've learned. The Math books also provide Ace It Time! checklists to guide students through problem solving. The Kindergarten book combines ELA and Math, with digging deeper activities and math checklists. Barron's books are easy to use and understand, easing you into the content and helping you accomplish tasks. You got this! With the solid grade level content, these are good resources for test prep or RTI (response to intervention). Relevant CC standards are identified in the table of contents. The self-directed exercises are easy to follow. Answers are in the back. Not reproducible. Each book is approx. 180pp, not perforated. ~ Sara
