PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Interested in helping your students develop their deep math understanding and "math talk"? Are you familiar with concept sorts? Many people use "sorts" with their spelling or word work programs, but sorting and categorizing can be extremely effective learning strategies for MANY areas! I have found sorts to be particularly effective in my math instruction, and I am excited to begin offering some of these sorts to you!

If you are unfamiliar with how sorts are used, I have included a full blog post with details. This blog post has actual photos that explains EXACTLY how I completed a sort with my own students. Feel free to get creative and try different approaches—but I have given one highly effective and efficient way to do this. My students have become masters at critiquing reasoning and using sophisticated math talk as they discuss these sorts--and I have had COUNTLESS teachers tell me that they have used these sorts for their evaluations and have had administrators rave. Why? Because they are engaging for students while promoting best practice in math instruction!

Each of the 5 resources is listed separately below--but this bundle offers them all together at a reduced price! That makes 25 total sorts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So what concepts are covered in this bundle?

Fraction Concepts

Angle Studies

Geometry Sorts

Multiplication Concepts

Algebra Thinking Concepts

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What do you get?

*The blog post with full directions

*The necessary headers and sort cards for each of the 25 sorts

*A “Show What You Know” sheet that follows the rule of each sort. Use as independent practice or as an assessment after you have done a sort to see what the students know and what they still need to learn. Many of these also ask students to explain their thinking—a key part of the CCSS,

*Also included with each sort is a page of blank cards if you wish to extend the learning by having students create MORE examples that go in each category. This is a great way to differentiate for more capable learners! See each sort for other differentiation hints!

Hey--there's no answer key! Why? The important part about doing these sorts is the discussion rather than making sure every answer is instantly correct. Let the students discuss, prove their ideas, and develop understanding!

*A CCSS alignment sheet to show how these sorts align to the grades 4-5 CCSS. These sorts also tie to other sets of rigorous standards.

I hope you find the resource thorough, relevant, and engaging--and that it will push your students to increase the depth of their understanding and their mathematical practices as well.
