I finally got into my new classroom today, and I am so excited to be starting in a new school for this upcoming year! I cannot wait to share ideas and pictures once the school year begins! For now, I have another Common Core resource to share with you that focuses on math warmups.
What’s included in the resource?
I have made 40 pages of daily/weekly review or math warmups for the 5th grade Common Core Math skills. I sequenced the skills based on difficulty or readiness skills. To help, I made a checklist of the skills and the pages numbers they are reviewed on. This way, I could ensure that all the skills were covered equally and spiraled effectively.
How do I use these math warmups?
I plan to start using these math warmups 40 days before state testing. This will ensure that I will have taught the majority of the standards on review pages prior to using them. As a result, the review will truly be a review and not a scrambling to try and teach new skills. The first ten or so pages include easier versions of the skill to ease the students into the review and build their confidence. Also, this gives me time to teach all the standards before getting into more difficult questions.
How are the math warmups organized?
The first 30 pages contain five boxes of skills. Each box represents a different domain in the 5th grade Common Core standards. The last 10 pages contain only two boxes and focus solely on the Base Ten and Fraction standards. Since the majority of the standards fall into those two domains, I needed some review material that specifically catered to those two domains. I plan to rotate the 10 pages in with the other 30 pages to have a nice review of all the skills on a regular basis.
