Chumash Round Robin- Fifth Grade
As a pre assessment before we started learning a new section in Chumash I asked the students to write down on a piece of paper words they already know and their translation as well as words they don’t know and the root of those words. Prior to that I had them in random groups and told them they could work as a group. I then gave each student a number. After about 10 min I said all number 1 and 2 should rotate to the left and see if anyone that they are now working with can help them with the words they don’t know. I did the same thing later and had numbers 3 and 4 rotate to the right. At the end we came back as a class to see how many words they still didn’t know. From 7 verses they only didn’t know 3 and they didn’t have to sit there listening to me translate all the words and we were able to learn those 7 verses in half the time it would have taken us in a more traditional way.
Fifth Grade Chumash Differentiation 
Today my fifth grade lesson was differentiated. I divided the class into three levels based on ability. Each group had to read the same set of pesukim (verses) but each group had a different assignment. The weakest group worked with me and we filled out a translation sheet together. The other two groups did not get a translation sheet. I also had an anchor activity if the high end group finished first.
Then at the end of the lesson we reviewed the material together through guided and direct questions.

Also helpful is the use of phrases and terms you don’t necessarily use in everyday conversations. To get the job done right, you’ll need to get online and make use of the many tools out there that can…See More
