Moving Up with Literacy Place is a comprehensive balanced literacy resource for grades 4, 5, and 6 designed to help you differentiate instruction and meet the diverse literacy needs of students in your classroom. The components are relevant because they connect how students are learning and accessing information in the classroom to how they function in the world outside the classroom.
With Moving Up students will be using comprehension strategies to access texts at levels appropriate for them in forms such as maps, brochures, books, posters, and game instructions. They will be writing for a variety of purposes and in a variety of forms, developing their oral language skills, and learning questioning techniques.
Moving Up is a resource for classrooms in the 21st century.
There are four main components for each grade of Moving Up:
- Professional Development Package
- 8 Strategy Units: Self-Monitoring, Analyzing, Sequencing, Making Connections, Predicting, Inferring, Evaluating, and Synthesizing
- 30 Guided Reading Texts
- 4 Book Club Units: Science, Social Responsibility, Arts, and Genre
