Not good at teaching Math to 5th

I have never taught higher than 3rd grade, and this year I was told I had to teach 5th grade math. I struggle as it is with math, and everyday I do my "homework" before I teach the kids. Some days are better, but for some reason, when I'm not confident the kids catch on, and I get very frustrated. These are all of the advanced GATE kids that supposedly "get it" when they are taught the concepts. My problem is, that I feel like they can see right through me sometimes, and I feel like they know more than me. Does anyone else feel intimated about teaching 5th grade math? Where can I go online for some Teacher tutoring for math?
