October WRITE THE ROOM with Math {Grade 5}

Are you looking for fun October writing?

Would you like to incorporate writing in your Math Centers?

If you said YES, there is a new resource to help your students read and write Math more! This is one of my favorites for October. 

Get students moving, talking, and writing Math Vocabulary in your classroom with this set of 5th Grade Math Vocabulary Sentences. The purpose of this resource is to help students with increasing their mathematics vocabulary. Students write the Math sentences on their paper with scaffolded practice. Students are provided a list of vocabulary words to use to complete the sentences. Students will be engaged and more confident practicing using math vocabulary. This NO PREP Write the Room vocabulary activity can be a success in your classroom too!      

Included are:
-Directions for setting up
-List of vocabulary words
-2 sets of scaffolded Math vocabulary sentences
-2 sets of Math vocabulary sentences in Color and Black & White for easy printing
-Rubric for EASY grading!
-Student papers
-5th Grade CCSS aligned
-Monthly Theme of October {Halloween}

This writing activity can be one week or one month long. To keep the writing all month long I recommend the 1st week having the students write the sentences with the words in them, the 2nd week have the students use the scaffolded sentences and figure out from key Math words what the vocabulary terms are, and then weeks 3 & 4 have the students write their own sentences with the Math vocabulary terms. Learning how to WRITE the Math is one strategy for becoming a more fluent and successful Mathematician. Practicing this skill is important and I have a bundle for the whole year if you would like to get your students writing more Math! Click HERE to view and download the Year-Long Bundle!
Happy Teaching!
