This is a set of colorful, child-friendly, posters that you can put on your Math bulletin board or Word Wall. These posters are designed to fit the NGSSS curriculum, but will align with many Common Core standards. This set is designed to align with the series Go Math! for 5th grade, the division unit.
Personally, I keep these up for the entire unit. I start by putting the posters up several days before we start the unit. This gives students a chance to preview the content. They know to expect that I'll ask questions regarding the posters on the first day of the unit. They often refer to these (and are encouraged to do) regularly during math lessons.
Posters inform on:
- polygons' prefixes and meanings
- how to use a protractor
- types of angles (acute, obtuse, right)
- types of triangles
- types of quadrilaterals
- parallelograms and trapezoids
- polyhedrons and non-polyhedrons
- faces, edges, and vertices
- views of solids; identifying the 2D shapes that make up the 3D shapes
While you will obviously have to teach all such concepts in depth, these posters are good reminders and visual cues for students. Feel free to use the pages you see fit. One size may not fit all. =)
