There are many Common Core standards for fifth graders to master, and this checklist breaks down the language standards quite effectively. Each standard is represented on the page and written in modified language that is more accessible to fifth graders.
- Make a large copy of the checklist to post on the wall; check off each standard as your class achieves mastery
- Give each pupil a copy at the beginning of the year to use for goal setting and personal progress tracking
- Center some end-of-the-year reflection activities around the checklist to show learners how far they've come
