## Year at a Glance: 5th Grade Math Pacing Guide

The above photo shows the year at a glance pacing guide that is included in the Guided Math bundle for 5th grade. The units align to common core standards, which most states have adopted (or have adopted identical ones). If you teach in Texas, you can learn more about the TEKS correlation here.

The units can be taught in any order; the year at a glance just shows my suggested pacing. Want a copy? Sign up below:

## Tips for Teaching 5th Grade Math with this Curriculum:

These lessons are intended for small group instruction, to give students differentiated instruction. However, some teachers prefer to use the lessons whole group–and that’s okay too! There are plenty of materials to use.

Before you even begin teaching from the unit, you can give your students the pre assessment. The best part about these assessments is that the post assessments are identical to the pre assessments–they just use different numbers and examples. This way you are directly comparing your students’ growth!

The lesson plans include daily remediation and enrichment ideas. And, best of all…the lesson plans are fully editable in PowerPoint.

## Using all of the 5th Grade Math Curriculum Materials:

Vocabulary cards, definitions, and questions from the lessons are provided to display. You can put these in a pocket chart, or have them out on the table while you are teaching a lesson.

The units include plenty of opportunities to check students’ understanding. Daily practice pages are a great option for independent work while the problem of the day is perfect for a ticket-out-the-door problem.

Printables are intended to be used to support instruction and provide students with hands on tools, posters, templates, and more that can help them understand whatever topic you are covering. My favorite are the vocabulary trifolds that students can use to record definitions and examples of the math vocabulary terms.

If you’re always looking for fun games to practice the 5th grade math skills, then you’re going to love the daily centers included in the units! These 5th grade math games are the perfect way to practice the daily objective in the lesson plan!
