Fantastic Fifth Grade Composition Resources

Kids have stories to tell and strong imaginations to tell them, but putting ideas to paper takes practice. In fifth grade, students start to craft real and fictional narratives and work on clear sequencing. They use specific techniques such as dialogue and pacing to enrich their narratives. Fifth graders learn how to dodge turbulence in their writing by smoothing their transition abilities. Students are also taught how to include sensory details for vividness. Finally, fifth graders learn the importance of a conclusion, a tidy box to wrap up their narrative. The Learning Library provides tools on all these elements for successful narrative writing.

The variety of printable worksheets teach students the key features of narratives like character, plot, setting, and theme. The Journal Writing Task Cards offer different writing prompts for kids to practice daily. There are also curated lesson plans like Immigration: Ellis Island, which teaches narrative through the real-life events of immigrants traveling to The United States. The printable workbook Just Write offers inspiring writing ideas that young students enjoy exploring. The fifth grade composition resources spark creativity and vision to words that will jump off the page.
