    With 5th graders? I like having at least 2 days of review. One day we do the review from the textbook. What are some ideas of what to do the other day?

    I review in the daily problems we do in class. I set aside no extra time for "review", I just constantly spiral and add depth to concepts throughout the year.

    I give each kid an individual whiteboard and I drill vocabulary out of a bucket. (Ex: If I pull "perimeter" they have to show me a problem that shows perimeter.) Sometimes I have them make up problems for me to solve or for a partner to solve.
