I like to have students keep a math notebook, where they record teacher notes and examples. A lot of students do not do well with handouts- always misplacing or losing. Students can take their notebooks home to study for tests. Instead of doing a math problem of the day, I like to use something called top 5, where students are given math problems to solve, which focus on the last 5 math skills taught. Generally I allow five -ten minutes for this activity at the beginning of each math lesson, five minutes to solve and five minutes to review the problems. Then I would start teaching the current lesson and allow time for independent work. Good luck in 5th grade
