Start this engaging data analysis study with a review of charts and graphs using the linked interactive presentation, which is both hilarious and comprehensive. Consider projecting it and having volunteers come up to complete various challenges. There are 27 statistics-related vocabulary terms you can use in a word sort (pictures of this are included for reference); put learners in small groups to determine how they would categorize these words. Next, groups use pre-collected data to create a pie chart and bar graph on the linked digital tools. Of course, you can easily have them do this by hand. There is an exit slip included here, as well.
Students investigate language arts by answering story study questions. In this word sorting lesson, students read the book The Chocolate Touch and answer questions regarding the characters, language and conflict in the story. Students complete a vocabulary worksheet regarding vowel patterns and "ing" endings.
Fifth graders complete word sort for various spelling patterns. In this word sort lesson, 5th graders examine and practice separating word into different categories. They work with the ar, are, and air pattern. They also work with the schwa + er, ir, and ur in the first syllables, and the VCV and VCCV patterns. They cut out the words parts and put them together properly.
