Product Description

With the 5th Grade Common Core "True Story" reading passages, students will read interesting stories about famous people that are rarely told. After each passage students will respond to critical thinking reading questions directly aligned to the 5th Grade Common Core Reading Standards and most 5th grade reading curriculum.

he following “true stories” have been collected to motivate students to want to learn more about historical events and leaders in our country as well as become more critical readers. I have listed the standards that correlate to each story.

These stories could be used as daily warm-ups, sponge activities, reviews or part of a history unit that integrates language arts with social studies.

I have tried to compile as many standards as possible in the twelve “true” stories in an authentic way in order for students to make the appropriate connections.

  • 5th Graders (10 to 11-year-olds)

About the Seller

After spending almost 30 years as a public educator, I am currently a "Differentiation Consultant" in which I've worked with districts adding enrichment materials to their curriculum and I am an adjunct field representative supervising student teachers.

Over the years I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade; as well as serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing Coach and finally a Gifted Specialist for many years.

I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years which caused me to realize there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher prep and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of our curriculum standards that students currently face.  The products I offer require little teacher prep, are fun and creative and provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even your brightest learners.
