This zip file includes station activities focused on place value, numerical expressions, and patterns. They are designed to align with common core standards for fifth grade math. You save 15% when buying the bundle as compared to all the activities purchased individually. As I add more activities, I will increase the price accordingly, but you will still have access to the file for no additional cost!! I've also included 5 pages of organizational tips and best practices for station learning in the classroom.
I created these activities to use in station rotations in a fifth grade classroom. However, they can easily be used in a variety of ways. You will find activities within this file also suitable for math centers, game day, formative assessment, or summative assessment. These activities cover:
Unit 1: Numerical Expressions
Unit 2: Patterns
Unit 3: Place Value
As students rotate through stations, they are challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. I have included instructions for you as well as printable student directions for each activity. Whenever appropriate, answer keys are also attached. The following resources are included in this file:
1. Stations Organization and Tips (5 Pages!)
2. Math Match - Numerical Expressions (18 Cards!)
3. Poly-Problem-Solver - Numerical Expressions (4 Versions!)
4. Triangler Puzzle- Numerical Expressions (16 cards!)
5. Three of a Kind - Numerical Expressions (Open-Ended!)
6. Patterns “Go Fish!” (18 Cards!)
7. Pick-a-Card: Patterns (6 Variations!)
8. I Have Who Has? – Patterns (24 Cards!)
9. On a Roll – Patterns (Unique Problems for Every Student!)
10. Roundabout - Place Value (4 Versions!)
11. Poly-Problem-Solver – Extended Form (4 Versions!)
12. Three of a Kind – Rounding (Open-Ended!)
13. Ordering and Operations – Decimals (3 Stations in 1!)
When I decided to give stations a try in my classroom I was amazed at how EASY it was to differentiate instruction. This was something I always struggled with in the past. I was also amazed at how much actual problem solving practice my students were doing in class, without my directing their every move.
These activities are included the BEST BUNDLE for Fifth Grade Complete Year at 25% off!!!!

Common Core Standards in this resource file include:
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation "add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2" as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. For example, given the rule "Add 3" and the starting number 0, and given the rule "Add 6" and the starting number 0, generate terms in the resulting sequences, and observe that the terms in one sequence are twice the corresponding terms in the other sequence. Explain informally why this is so.
Read, write, and compare decimals to thousandths.
Read and write decimals to thousandths using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form, e.g., 347.392 = 3 × 100 + 4 × 10 + 7 × 1 + 3 × (1/10) + 9 × (1/100) + 2 × (1/1000).
Compare two decimals to thousandths based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.
