Monthly-Themed ELA Units for Upper Elementary

The beginning of the school year is a hectic time. With all your classroom decorating and professional development meetings, you’re probably feeling a bit overwhelmed. No worries… I am here to help!  I have put together monthly ELA units for upper elementary students that include fun and engaging activities.  These activities will keep your students working on important skills and concepts without taking a lot of your time to prepare.  Give it a try with the September unit.
My September-Themed ELA Packet is just the ticket for easy prep, student fun, and a high level of academic engagement. With this single packet, you will have everything extra for your ELA plans in place. It makes life soooo much easier for the classroom teacher!  Take a look at everything included in each of my 9 Monthly-Themed ELA Packets:
  • 4 High-Interest Informational Text Passages, Worksheets, and Answer Keys (All 4 passages center around events in that month)
  • 4 ELA Activities/Games – Perfect for Centers!
  • Poem, Worksheet, and Answer Key
  • Writing Activity (Narrative, Opinion, or Informative)
  • Poetry Writing Activity 
All directions and guide sheets are included!  Just print and use!
September’s ELA Packet makes a normally-hectic month easy for you. If you’re like me, you have a lot of baseline assessments to individually administer to your students. While you’re giving those one at a time, have your other students work on the informational passages or one of the centers. It is a HUGE help!
Here is what is specifically included in the September packet:
 4 High-Interest September-Themed Informational Text Articles, Worksheets, and Answer Keys
Writing the Constitution, Johnny Appleseed, Labor Day, and Patriot’s Day
 Activity #1: Synonym/Antonym Sort
 Activity #2: Prefix Match-Up
 Activity #3: Sentence Sort (4 Sentence Types)
 Activity #4: Where’s the Antonym? Cut and Paste Worksheet
 That’s 4 Activities for the Month!
Perfect for ELA Centers!
Autobiographical Poem Writing Activity (Great for Open House!)
My Dream Job Writing Activity
Poetry Analysis Worksheet
You can also find ALL 9 Monthly-Themed ELA Units for Upper Elementary in one discounted bundle in my Teachers Pay Teachers store! Be prepared for the entire school year! Find it HERE.
