Final Notes:

While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale. (Most materials include a black and white version.)

Though this unit is specific for 4th grade standards, it can be used for enrichment in 3rd grade as an extension of the addition and subtraction strategies, or as a review or intervention for 5th grade.

These lessons are perfect for tutors, paraprofessionals, volunteers, and substitutes! They are low prep, too!

With 15 complete lesson plans in this unit, that’s less than a dollar a day for everything you need–worksheets, centers, scripted lessons, vocabulary, and much more! It’s definitely worth the value!

This unit plan is perfect if you have always wanted to implement math workshop but weren’t sure how or are just starting out! This unit plan saves you time! Additionally, with scripted plans it’s perfect for when you have a substitute!
