Common Core Language Standard 1 - Grade 5 Resources

Today we'll look at fifth grade resources for College and Career Readiness Anchor Standard for Language 1. CCRA.L.1 asks students to "demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar when writing or speaking."

Since L.5.1 builds on L.3.1 and L.4.1, many of the Grade 3 Resources and Grade 4 Resources we've discussed can be successfully used with fifth graders as well. Let's look at some additional possibilities.

L.5.1a requires students to "explain the function of conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections in general and their function in particular sentences."

Sometimes fifth grade can be a little dry, don't you think? Although I've already mentioned the Words Are Categorical series by Brian P. Cleary, three of his books can be fun for fifth graders too: But and For, Yet and Nor: What Is a Conjunction?Over, By the Clover: What Is a Preposition?, and Cool! Woah! Ah and Oh!: What Is an Interjection?.

For review and reinforcement, why not try The Eight Parts of Speech PowerPoint from the Happy Edugator? You can also find a set of 30 Conjunctions, Prepositions, & Interjections Task Cards at The Fabulous Life of an Elementary Teacher.


L.5.1b tells students to "form and use the perfect (e.g., I had walked; I have walked; I will have walked) verb tenses." L.5.1c asks them to "use verb tenses to convey various times, sequences, states, and conditions." Check out this post on the Back to English website. To me, using timelines like this is perfect (no pun intended) for teaching tenses. Do you need practice sheets? English for Everyone has what you need!

L.5.1d takes verb tenses one step farther. Asking students to "recognize and correct inappropriate shifts in verb tense" requires higher order thinking: analysis and application. The Happy Edugator offers Verb Tense Shifts Paragraph Revising Worksheet for practice of this skill

L.5.1e states: "Use correlative conjunctions (e.g., either/or, neither/nor)." It's time for more YouTube! Check out Conjunction Song from Grammaropolis - Let's Bring It All Together. The Happy Edugator also has a Correlative Conjunctions Practice Worksheet, and you can find more at English for Everyone.
