This product will save you HOURS of planning! This 21-page product contains 9 lessons (with multiple practice pages in many of the lessons) that fall within the Grade 5 Operations and Algebraic Thinking standards. Lessons are often structured as an I Do We Do You Do/Try It format with accompanying practice pages. In addition to these explicit lessons, there are cut and sorts to promote engagement, an interview grid activity to launch one of the skills, an assessment, and a spiraling "relay" activity to promote practice, review, and collaboration. Here is the breakdown of each lesson:
Lesson 1: Single-step expression match (Cut and match, and practice)
Lesson 2: Solving two-step expressions with parentheses (I Do, We Do, You Do, practice, and ticket to leave)
Lesson 3 (part a): Solving expressions with brackets LAUNCH
Lesson 3 (part b): Solving expressions with brackets (We Do, You Do, and practice)
Lesson 4: Solving expressions with braces (I Do, We Do, You Do, multi-page practice)
Lesson 5: Inserting parentheses in expressions (Try It and practice)
Lesson 6: Variable cut and sort match
Lesson 7: Solving expressions with variables (when variable values are given)
Lesson 8: Mixed skills practice (can be used as an assessment)
Lesson 9: Mixed review in a relay style practice
This product will give you at least two weeks of math instruction for your class :-) I work as an inclusion teacher in grade 5 and this is exactly what we created and followed for our inclusion class. Our students are now so confident with their ability to solve expressions using order of operations! (PDF File)
The exact Common Core standards this product aligns with are as follows:
Write and interpret numerical expressions.
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.
