Since I started blogging, I have received many questions about my 5th grade math pacing guide. I finally decided to type up a shareable copy with my rationale and reasons. This pacing guide is aligned with 5th grade math common core standards. You can find my 5th grade literacy pacing guide by clicking here.
About the 5th Grade Math Pacing Guide
In the pacing guide, I did not include actual dates so this can be referred to year after year, regardless of start times and school breaks. Instead of dates, I included the time frame that I typically use when teaching particular math skills. This does vary from year to year depending on my students and their particular needs.
As mentioned above, this pacing guide is aligned to the 5th grade common core math standards. The guide includes the math skill with the common core standard with which the skill correlates.
In addition to the time frame and sequence of skills, I also included my rationale and reasons for teaching the skill at that point in the year (or my reasons for teaching that skill before or after other math skills).
Finally, I also include links to helpful blog posts, free resources, and TpT resources for the math skills. One link that you will definitely want to check out is my specific fraction pacing guide, which can be found here.
If you add up the time-frame, you may notice that it accounts for 33ish weeks of the school year (depending on how long I spend introducing math centers and procedures and how long the fraction unit takes- this honestly varies from year to year depending on how much re-teaching I need to do). The remainder of the year is spent on test prep and then end of the year math activities and projects.
