Earlier this week, I blogged about sneaking some constructed response practice into Halloween fun. Read that post and grab two free math tasks by click here. The students had a great time completing them and it was some much-needed practice, so I decided to create a winter version for this upcoming winter season. I created four winter math word problems based on the common core standards for 5th grade.
Skills included in this winter math constructed response freebie are:
- dividing with unit fractions
- multiplying fractions by whole numbers
- comparing and ordering decimals
- writing numerical expressions.
Each page contains winter graphics that match the math task. Each winter math task also comes with a coordinating “We Can” statement so the problems could be made into a holiday display with their winter math work. The students could even color the graphics and border on each page to make the printable cute. These would make a super simple and cute winter math display.
Each constructed response math task contains a rigorous task and plenty for room for the students to show all of their work. Each task also includes a reminder or the students to include visuals, equations, and a written explanation in their answers.
