This is ONE of SEVEN owl-themed interactive notebooks that I have designed. I have made this product FREE so you can get an idea of what you will be paying for if you purchase the other notebooks or the entire bundle!
Common core unit one (WHOLE NUMBERS & ORDER OF OPERATIONS) is covered in this notebook. Skills include: order of operations, parenthesis/brackets/braces, exponents, multi-digit multiplication, multi-digit division, and powers of ten.
Here is what is included in this notebook:
-Student table of contents
-Unit cover page
-Listed Common Core standards covered in the unit
-17 vocabulary cards
-13 lessons (left/right notebook pages)
-2 to 4 strategies per skill
-3 to 5 scaffolded practice problems per strategy
-4 open response questions
This is an excellent tool to use in your classroom, especially if you aren't thrilled with how your textbook covers material! Students have a reference to anchor to all year long, and it also makes a great study-guide for end of the year tests. The step-by-step explanations can also be incredibly useful for parents.
While different units vary in length due to the amount of content, they each offer the same high-quality instructional material. If you like this and feel that you can use it as a resource in your classroom, please come back to check out the other six units! OR, you can purchase the 7-unit bundle for a savings of $3.
***Please note that on the first Order of Operations lesson, two of the problems work out to negative numbers. The example problem and #2 on the scaffolded practice problems to the side. I work these out to negatives with my students, especially higher groups, to expose them to the advanced content and as challenge problems. You can change the - signs to + signs in each problem and the answers will work out to positive numbers. Furthermore, it has been brought to my attention that the division on pages 17-19 include two 5-digit divisor problems, whereas the Common Core only calls for three and four digit divisors (#1 & #4 on the scaffolded practice problems on each page). Again, I use these with my students, but you are of course able to cross them off or change the numbers in your classroom.
If you happen to find an error in this file, please feel free to bring it to my attention, however remember that I am a human perfectly capable of making mistakes and am a tired teacher on most days too, just like you :)
Have a blessed day!
