Math Freebies - Which Ones Do You Need?

     Take a look at these math freebies and grab any - or all - that fill a need in your classroom!

     This “upside down” A Little Different Hundred Board is just what students need to develop number sense and see how our number system works with our algorithms! I developed this board to help students connect what they hear with what they see. The board starts with 1 in the lower left corner. It allows students to move up the board as they count higher or add. They subtract and move down the board, more in line with algorithmic directions.

     I use this Order of Operations freebie every single year.  It's a great introduction to the concept and goes really well in math notebooks.

     This Factoring Fun packet is one of my strongest math tools and the one I've used longer than any other.  It was my original freebie in my TPT store!  I've even had kids tell me they kept their packet and used it in the next grade!

     This one takes a little preparation, but it's really fun for the kids!  Introduce your students to The World of Real Estate and get super reading, writing, and math practice with this editable activity template. It requires students to have a copy of any real estate booklet from your area and for you to substitute appropriate page numbers for the red numbers in the template.

     Challenge students with these Mixed Practice Word Fraction Problems that cover all four operations. Instead of knowing ahead of time that they will be adding or subtracting, multiplying or dividing, students must use their best critical thinking to decide what the problem is asking before solving.

     I love Scoot games!  Exponent Scoot makes it easy to get kids up and moving and practicing math with this one-prep activity!

     Common Core Math word problems that address fifth grade standards can be hard to find, but I love creating them!  These Volume Word Problems address 5.MD.3, 5.MD.4, and 5.MD 5.

      I hope these freebies make the coming days and weeks easier for you and more successful for your students!
