Grade 5 #MATH. Common Core Documentation Planning Checklist. (PDF and editable Microsoft Word versions included) Color coordinated checklist contains all of the MATH standards in an easy-to-read and record format. The checklists include an area to jot down the dates you teach the standard, and a section to write notes about strategies used, what worked, what needs to be revised, etc. I have included a Microsoft Word version of the checklist so that you may edit the checklist to suit your needs.
