Use this free collection from The Curriculum Corner to develop math vocabulary in your classroom.
We have created this academic math vocabulary booklet to be used during your math instruction.
When creating this resource, we focused on 4th and 5th grade math standards. We worked through the standards and included common language used in math.
You can download this free collection by clicking on the bold red words at the bottom of this post.
We have included words that will be found in both grade levels. Some pages contain examples to be completed by students while other require students to provide their own example.
Along with preprogrammed pages, we have supplied you with pages that you can add your own words to. There is a variety of these pages so that you can use the pages that fit with each math word or skill.
We would work through our students on completing these pages to be sure that this will become an accurate resource for students to use when working.
Other options include word maps and pages to be used for a weekly vocabulary list. There are two options for the weekly vocabulary lists – one for teachers who choose to focus on just two words and other options with more spaces for words.
To add motion to our classrooms, we like to add actions to our vocabulary words to help kids recall the words. We let the kids work together to decide on the action and then practice the words while waiting in the hallway for special or entering the classroom. It’s so easy to do, engaging and really helps kids remember meanings quickly.
We began with a cover page that you can use to preassemble vocabulary booklets at the beginning of the year and add to math folders. Or, add to a binder to make the booklets easier to expand. Include tabs in the binder so you can have a dictionary with words related to your math workshop and another tab weekly word lists.
