Fifth Grade Math Connections


Links below are provided for instructional use with well-crafted, ready-to-teach Explicit Direct Instruction lessons, developed by DataWorks, that focus on grade level specific Common Core State Standards. (Click here for Guide on Implementing Standards for Mathematical Practice) These lessons are designed to engage all learners through whole-class instruction as teachers introduce new concepts and skills while modeling the kind of thinking Core Standards and assessments require. In keeping with Explicit Direct Instruction teaching strategies, these lessons provide clear learning objectives, emphasize teaching first, checking for understanding throughout lesson components, and guided practice that includes differentiation with optional scaffolding for all students in order to gain confidence and skill development.
