5th Grade Math Interactive Notes and Parent Study Guides


Looking for a way to teach/review math skills and get parents more involved in helping their child with math? Look no further than this 5th Grade Math Interactive Notes and Parent Study Guides Bundle!


5th Grade Math Interactive Notes and Parent Study Guides

This 5th Grade Math Interactive Notes and Parent Study Guides Bundle is essential for every 5th grade classroom! Even though textbooks are a thing of the past, students still need something to refer to when working independently at math centers or when working on homework. I have also found that almost all parents want to help their child to be successful but they do not always know how, especially when it comes to math. For years, I kept hearing parents say, “they teach things differently than the way they taught it when I was a kid.”

Now, I have bundled all of my Virginia SOL and CCSS-aligned math interactive notes and parent study guides!
