Textbooks have become a thing of the past but I have found my students still need something to refer to when working independently at centers or when working on homework. I start each of my math classes with a whole group mini lesson using these interactive notes, before sending students to centers and guided instruction. Giving my students something to refer to with step-by-step instructions, strategies for solving, and rhymes for remembering steps has empowered those working at centers to keep moving independently rather than sitting and waiting for me if they get stuck or forget how to solve a problem. Since implementing this strategy, my students have increased their test scores!
Now, I have bundled all of my 5th grade math interactive notes together! This bundle comes with 156 pages of interactive notes, featuring 26 Common Core and Virginia Standards of Learning aligned topics. These interactive notes include important vocabulary, step-by-step instructions, practice problems, partner work, critical thinking and application questions, stories, as well as strategies and rhymes for remembering steps in certain types of problems. An answer key and table of contents is included to make planning easier for the teacher.
An editable template has also been included so that you can add any additional tips or strategies you would like your students to know.

+ Place value (includes place value from the millions through the thousandths place and rounding with decimals)
