This Calendar Math Starter Kit perfect DAILY scaffolded spiral review of all key 5th grade Common Core Math standards that will have your students begging for more! This is an entire manual that has been classroom tested and broken down so that you, the teacher, can successfully implement Calendar Math in your fifth grade classroom. This is something that I swear by in my own classroom.

RECENTLY UPDATED FOREVER! This no longer has to be updated each year!!!

This contains over 300 pages to help you implement Calendar Math in your room. This kit includes:

* Detailed descriptions of what Calendar Math is and looks like in the 5th grade classroom. (THIS IS INVALUABLE!!!!!!!)
* Pictures of actual Calendar Math boards with examples of problems to include in a 5th grade classroom.
* A routine/procedure "script" to help you know what to say with your students.
* Over 4 months of FILLED IN Calendar sheets for you to use in your room WITH ANSWER KEYS. (August, September, October, and January)
* Blank, EDITABLE sheets so you can customize the Calendar Math to your specific standards.
* Calendar Math bulletin board templates to accompany the premade sheets.
* Common Core State Standards correlations to the Calendar Math sheets included.
* A list of Frequently Ask Questions....answered!

Please note that the pre-filled in sheets DO NOT cover the entire year. The idea behind this STARTER KIT is that it *starts* you by showing you how to fill in the sheets. Then, it gradually releases responsibility to you so that you can take the reigns in making this more beneficial and custom to the needs of your specific class.

Please make sure you have POWER POINT in order to open up the editable sheets.

This kit includes all of the other Calendar Math products that I have for 5th grade. You DO NOT need to buy any other 5th grade Calendar Math products if you purchase this one!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘢/𝘣 + 𝘤/𝘥 = (𝘢𝘥 + 𝘣𝘤)/𝘣𝘥.)
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
