Fifth Grade Color Math Curriculum


McRuffy 5th Grade Color Math is available only, directly,
from McRuffy Press.

NEW! The McRuffy 5th Grade Color Math Curriculum trains children to use a combination of skill, logic, and knowledge to interpret mathematical concepts evident in the world around us. Using a spiraling approach that keeps concepts fresh, the 5th grade math curriculum covers a wide range of topics and concepts.

McRuffy 5th Grade Color Math Curriculum includes:

Fifth Grade Color Math Cover

Teacher's Manual

Daily lesson plans give examples, teaching tips, and lightly scripted lessons to introduce concepts. The easy-to-use plans follow the same format as previous levels of the Color Math curriculum. Workbook answers are included after each math lesson. The manual is bound in two parts. The coil binding allows for fold flat easy use.


The colorful math workbook includes three to five activities per daily lesson. The activities include much more than a sheet of problems to solve. A variety of concepts are offered daily to teach, reinforce, practice, and review concepts. The fifth grade math workbook includes several instructional pages that introduce new concepts to encourage independent learning. The coil binding allows for fold flat for easy use.

Resource Pack

The resource pack includes a variety of unbound sheets. With the exception of a few sheets, the pack can be fully consumable, but can also be reproduced. The resource pack includes over 150 sheets including testing materials, additional workbook-like activities, graphing and grid sheets, teacher copies of text pages, and auditory exercises. Included with the resource pack is a precut card set.

Response Book

As with other levels, students grow in mental math skills and listening skills using our unique Response Book. Students record responses to teacher read auditory exercises using a dry erase marker. The format is self-checking and non-consumable. The daily auditory exercise help build listening skills and reviews concepts.
