Fifth Grade Spelling and Vocabulary Sample(Teacher's Manual, Workbook, Dictionary)
The Fifth Grade Spelling and Vocabulary Teacher's Manual makes managing your child's learning a breeze. It provides an overview of lessons, organizes pre-tests and post-tests, and provides and answer key for the workbook. Instruction is more independent at this level, so the manual provides less instructional material than our other levels.
The Fifth Grade Spelling and Vocabulary curriculum features weekly lists of spelling words chosen to also build vocabulary. Daily lessons emphasize the spelling structure and meaning of words. Each list has some phonetic or spelling theme such as a common vowel sound syllable, suffix, or prefix.
The Fifth Grade Spelling and Vocabulary Workbook will increase vocabulary level while learning to spell more complex words. Five workbook pages per weekly list have some phonetic or spelling theme such as a common vowel sound syllable, suffix, or prefix.
The exercises follow a general pattern:
- Day 1: Word introduction such as writing words as syllables to emphasize simple syllables within complex words.
- Day 2: Going beyond the list, students explore variations of words, grammar, or related words.
- Day 3: Students use words in the context of sentences to emphasize meaning.
- Day 4: This is our variety day. Exercises might emphasize sentence usage or meaning.
- Day 5: Students write words based on clues (short informal definitions).
The Fifth Grade Spelling and Vocabulary Make Your Own Dictionary features all the words from the Spelling and Vocabulary Workbookarranged in alphabetical order with ample line space to write one or two definitions. Students find and write definitions in the book on a weekly basis based on spelling lists. By the end of the course, students will have created a useful dictionary of words they have learned.
It puts previously learned words at the student's fingertips to become a helpful tool to review and master vocabulary words.
