80+ Fraction Printables

After weeks and weeks of working on it, I finally finished my Fraction Printables for 4th Grade. I started out creating printables to use to bridge my curriculum and the Common Core Standards. In the end, I ended up with over 80 pages, complete with teaching pages, worksheets, word problems, quizzes, and a final assessment. Now I can't wait to get started with fractions after Winter Break.
I have added these printables as a product on TpT. Here are some sample pages...
These printables address all of the 4th grade common core standards related to fractions and decimals.

Head on over to my TpT store, where I included a 60+ page preview of this product. 

Teaching fractions is my favorite part of teaching math. Now I'm even more excited about teaching fractions this year!!

Problem Solving Tasks {to meet the Common Core "Standards for Mathematical Practice"}

I have been looking everywhere for problem solving activities to help support the Common Core "Standards for Mathematical Practice". Since I haven't been able to find exactly what I was looking for, I decided to create exactly what I was looking for...
The Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice require students to apply their understanding of math concepts and skills. These standards emphasize logical thinking, reasoning, and conceptual understanding. Students need prompts that go beyond basic word problems in order to meet these standards.

Here are some sample pages...
I plan to use these problem solving tasks in my classroom in a variety of ways. At first, I plan to use them whole-group and in small groups, to get students used to Problem Solving Procedures. Next, students will work on solving the tasks in pairs and small groups. Eventually, I would also like to use these for independent practice and as assessments. 

This collection also includes a handout on Problem Solving Procedures and a Problem Solving Rubric, which I plan to copy to the back of each problem solving task...
Visit my TpT Store for more information and to view the extensive preview!

This product is 20% off for the next two days!!

Happy Problem Solving!!!

Common Core Math {Outside of the Box} 3rd Grade Edition

I just finished a 3rd grade edition of Common Core Math Outside of the Box. I have really enjoyed using the 4th grade version of this product to challenge my students in math.

One of the features of the Common Core Math Standards are the "Standards for Mathematical Practices", which require students to solve problems, reason, explain, model, use tools, look for patterns, and so much more.
These pages ask students to explain their understanding and strategies, while making observations. They also require students to reason to solve problems and find answers, and generate their own problems, based on their understanding. Here are some sample pages from each domain...

For more info visit my TpT Store! For the next two days, this product will be offered for 20% off!! Enjoy!!!

Have a great week and Happy Halloween to all!!!!

Common Core Math {Outside of the Box} - 5th Grade Edition

I recently created Common Core math pages to encourage my students to think "Outside of the Box" when it comes to the math standards. One of the features of the math standards, that I truly appreciate, but have also found challenging are the "Standards for Mathematical Practice". These standards require students to solve problems, reason, explain, model, use tools, look for patterns, and so much more. I have now completed the 5th grade edition to hlep meet these standards!!!
These pages ask students to explain their understanding and strategies, while making observations. They also require students to reason to solve problems and find answers, and generate their own problems, based on their understanding. Here are some sample pages from each domain...

I plan to use these pages for students to complete in pairs or small groups. I may also use them at math centers, or as assessments. 

Visit my TpT Store for more info and to preview other pages! 

Now is a great time to visit TpT. They recently received 100,000 likes on their Facebook page.
