The fifth grade NBT unit contains a reference guide, charts, handouts, study sheets, and tests for NBT 1 (place value), NBT 2 (patterns in zeros), NBT 3 (reading, writing, and comparing decimals), NBT 4 (rounding), NBT 5 (multiplication), NBT 6 (division), and NBT 7 (operations with decimals). The reference guide is a great teaching tool while the charts and handouts provide practice and review. Each study sheet and test has rigor, an extended response, and a spiral review-all that are needed for your state assessment. The unit also includes answer keys for each document.
Assessments include higher order questions (multiple choice, fill in the blank, and short answer), written responses, drawing of models, and use of algorithms to explain and/or justify student answers.
I give the study sheet a few days before the unit test. This gives students time to complete it as part of classwork or homework. Then, we go over the study guide to make sure all students understand how to complete each question. The unit test is similar to the study guide but with different numbers in the questions.
On the spiral review, I’ve included skills most commonly missed on prior assessments. Including the spiral review in each assessment allows students to work toward mastery of skills they have not already grasped and to keep skills fresh in students’ minds. This comprehensive unit provides much, if not all, that is needed to effectively teach and assess the NBT standards.
There are 53 working pages in this unit. There are seven sections to the unit. Each section (separated by the standard and /or skill) includes a study sheet and an assessment, and several sections also include handouts that can be used for homework or extra review. Each study guide and test is 3 or 4 pages long. Each has questions about the standard being tested, a spiral review, and an extended constructed response where the students have to not only answer but also justify with pictures and/or words their responses.
Answer keys are provided for the entire unit.
