So I FINALLY got around to creating a Teachers Pay Teachers page! It has taken some time, but it has been done. Who knew summer break could be so productive?
I have been spending a substantial amount of time this summer putting together activities that my students can benefit from next year. Whether it’s working on math center activities or hands-on activities in general. I am very pumped and excited to share these new goodies with them next year!
How many of my ‘fifthie’ friends out there love math vocabulary?! How about an activity to engage your students with the vocabulary, without making it seem so redundant or monotonous?

How I Use These Charts
I have the charts hanging in my classroom at the beginning of the school year. Since this is the vocabulary I will introduce in Unit 1 for math, it is great to already have it displayed. However, you can hang them as you teach them. Many of the terms will have been introduced in fourth grade, too – so it’s a great review for incoming students.
After we have reviewed the words, and throughout the remainder of the unit, students will have the ability to write down examples on sticky notes and put them under each word. You can also laminate the sheets and let the students use dry erase markers to jot down their examples.
This is an excellent way to keep your students engaged with their work, record examples of what they are actually doing, and also helps retain the words and their definitions.
I hope you all enjoy it! Please comment below with any suggestions you have or ideas for using these engagement charts! Want to grab a free sample? Click the button below to grab yours today.
