This morning workbook is a great way to get my students' brains engaged and ready for the day (and retain what we've learned for end-of-year testing).
Included in this packet...
*180 pages of Math and Language Arts Common Core Spiral Review.
*28 page Answer Key included
*Cover page for student workbooks
*"How It Works" page
On each page you will find...
Common Core review questions for Math and Language Arts
A sentence to correct and check for writing conventions (there are a few ways to correct these sentences, my answers are just one example)
Language Arts questions - aligned to 6th grade Common Core
Math story problems and deep questions - aligned to 6th grade Common Core Clusters
Also includes a Mental Math section on each page
Journal prompt and space to write 1-2 paragraphs
Each school day begins with my class quietly working on a page in this book. It takes them about 10 minutes to complete a page (just enough time for me to take attendance and lunch count and get things situated for the day).
We then correct the page together (answer key is in the back of this booklet). This is a great opportunity to refresh the students on topics previously taught. Also, by correcting together, it gives you another opportunity to teach a mini-lesson when needed.
The first few weeks of workbook include review questions from 5th grade common core and then the math section goes in order of the core clusters, beginning with Ratios and Proportions. I've tried to pace the questions so that they will not be introduced in the morning workbook until they have already been taught in my math lessons. This way, the workbook is a review, review, review until the end of the year so students will not forget the concepts taught!
