Thank you

where are the answer guides for these activities? (Author's Purpose- gr. 5)

Usually, if you look up each article individually, you can find the answers. I do wish they would put them here as well. I think it is strange that they don't.

Hello there! Answer keys for these units can be found on the unit pages of these units under the Teacher and Student Materials section below. If you click on Teacher and Student Materials you will see the Student Answer Key. Here are the links to the unit pages:



Hope that helps. Happy Teaching!

Amazing site!

Fantastic information

Very good information to cover common core standards for fifth grade in Reading/Language Arts

Thanks so much for the great resources!!

There is something that suits each one of my students ! Students who waited for the class time to be over, are now participating very enthusiastically in the discussions on the questions.
Thank you so much.

I love this site, it really helps me a lot.

It's a time saver. Love it

I love the posters provided with the unit. They are very good visual reminders for the students as they read and evaluate any type of text.

Absolutely love, lines up nicely with Common Core! Thank you very much!!!

This website is amazing. I gave my students an assessment and found that they were continuing to struggle with cause and effect relationships. I pulled this site up while they were at specials and found a passage that we were able to work on as soon as they returned.
I love how user friendly the site is and the plethora of resources available.

Thank you a million times over for these already created passages that help us so much in the "trenches"

I find this site extremely helpful when teaching reading strategies. Plus, the passages are tremendously engaging.
Thank you so much!

This site gives so many great ideas, activities and reading passages. All of these are aligned with The Common Core so it makes my life SO much easier.

I'm in love with this website. Wonderful resources for Common Core skills.

Helpful ideas!
