### Back to School NO PREP Math Packet {5th Grade}

A Back To School Math NO PREP packet that will keep your fifth graders engaged on day 1 in your classroom! This packet is just plain fun. Not only is it PACKED with fourth-grade common core math problems, it also gives students fun coloring, puzzles, and problem solving. Also included is a beginning of the year diagnostic test with fourth and fifth grade benchmarks addressed, back to school activities, and a Math portfolio starter pack. Use this packet at the beginning of 5th grade year review activities during August & September.

THIS BACK TO SCHOOL PACKET FEATURES: *25 days of Back To School Math Activities. It is just enough for a good review, but not overwhelming for Back To School classwork or homework!
*FUN activities and puzzles centered on reviewing math curriculum.
*Designed for students who have completed 4th grade and are going into 5th grade.
*Packed with 4th grade common core math problems for review and practice. Tied to Common Core benchmarks required for 5th grade.
*Timeline for completing Back to School Packet (2-3 weeks).
*An ANSWER KEY for each day.
*Back to School Activities for the whole classroom.
*Math Portfolio contents for saving and sharing student work for the school year. (Parents love these at parent conferences!)
*Lots of coloring fun. I’ve intentionally designed this packet with lots of pictures and borders to color. A MUST: Using a set of crayons or markers.

I hope that this packet helps you plan for the beginning of the school year. This packet can be used the first 2-3 weeks of school during Math to actively engage your students in being back to school. The review activities are fun and refreshing for students who may have difficulties or stigmas about Math. Begin the year with students on a fresh start into having fun with Math!

Happy Teaching!
