LearnZillion's 5th Grade ELA module provides high-quality video lessons to support students' mastery of the Common Core ELA standards. Furthermore, teachers can also use the website's resources to support their own teaching development. Every lesson has potential to inform and inspire teachers to engage with students in new ways -- between the videos, lesson slides, graphic organizers, and copies of the accompanying text, the site provides a lot of supporting resources. 

For students' in-class use, the read-aloud videos can support struggling students, and graphic organizers provide helpful scaffolding for reading and writing tasks. Help your students recognize the think-alouds in the guided-practice videos -- these can help them better understand the concepts being covered. For more individualized learning, create playlists for each of your students, or even just for groups of students. Lessons could also provide a strong introductory assignment for each ELA standard.

Grade 5 ELA Standouts:

  • Reading: Life for Slave Children in 1861
  • Writing -- Opinion: Why Are Zoos Important for Science?
  • Writing -- Informational: Responding to a Constructed Response Question

Full Disclosure: LearnZillion and Common Sense Education share funders; however, those relationships do not impact Common Sense Education's editorial independence and this learning rating.
