Using Wixie to meet math standards in 5th grade

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Jan 24, 2022 6:15:00 AM

Students in 5th grade are deepening their understanding of place value, fractions, and decimals, as well as building fluency with operations and expressions and the coordinate plane. 

Wixie's Curriculum library includes a range of math-focused templates you can use for formative assessment purposes or to support student thinking as they tackle complex math tasks in your classroom.

Teachers can assign Wixie activities directly to students, or customize any template to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Instructions, both written and recorded, also show in Wixie for each template. You can also ask students to record their voice to explain their mathematical thinking.

Math Standards

Here are a few examples of the types of templates you will find in Wixie for specific math learning targets.

Classify shapes by their properties 

Assign templates, like the ones shown here, to practice and evaluate student geometric reasoning. Students can also use Wixie's paint tools to create shapes that follow geometric rules you have specified.

Open the Curriculum library at your Wixie home page and browse the Math and Geometry folders to view files connected to this learning goal.

You can also find these using the Search field at the top with keywords like: shape, classify, and sort.

Utilize sophisticated measurement, conversions, and data

Assign templates like these for practice with volume and measurement conversions. Wixie also includes a range of math templates for graphs, line plots, and coordinate planes.

Find templates like these using the Search field at the top with keywords: line plot, volume, conversion.

Work with and create a coordinate plane

Assign templates like these to practice and evaluate student understanding of a coordinate system.

Find templates like these using the Search field at the top of your Wixie home page using keyword: coordinate.

Perform operations with multi-digit numbers and decimals

Wixie's Curriculum library includes files you can assign to have students practice and apply skills with operations in the context of a real-world problem.

Many Wixie templates include multiple pages to better connect operations and expressions to real-world examples and provide space and scaffolds for student work.

You can find templates like these using the Search field at the top using "decimal" as a keyword. You can also use the three dots to the right of the field to search by standard.

Open-ended math projects

Wixie is way more than a practice and template tool. With Wixie, students can write, draw, and record to demonstrate their mathematical understanding and comprehension in creative ways.

Provide your students with a real-world challenge or problem to solve and let them use Wixie to design ideas, graph data, and communicate complex ideas. Open-ended math projects allow students to truly apply their learning, and provide them with engaging and meaningful work.

We have collected the ideas on this page (along with links you can assign immediately) in our Elementary Math Curriculum Guide.
