Grade 5

Instruction on Reading Skills & Standards

Use leveled books and other resources on Reading A-Z to support specific skill instruction once you have identified student instructional needs using the Reports in your Kids A-Z management hub.

Ensure that students become skilled and confident with reading, writing, and technology tasks that help them answer high-stakes, English Language Arts test items. Each Practice Test delivers an experience designed to simulate standards-based, end-of year assessment.

Questions require students to use high-order thinking skills and closely read one or two passages representing multiple text types. Passages and questions gradually increase in length and difficulty as students move through the sequence of grade-appropriate tests.
