Ms. Chelsea’s Group: Abe, Beatrice, Baylee, Madison, Allie, Calder, and Lucia
Objective: Students will solve addition problems within 10 by using objects or drawings.
Math this week has been very exciting! Our youngest group of students have been working on adding within ten. We made a rainbow chart of combinations to make ten. The students have learned a new math game called Tens-Go Fish. They love using the rainbow chart to help find the different combinations of ten.
Mrs. Griffin’s group: Kaylee, Michael P., Konrad, Elena, Karli, and Marley
Objective: Students will use addition and multiplication to find the total number of objects arrange in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns.
They worked on establishing a foundation for multiplication. The students have made equal groups of objects and have started skip counting. We warm up by skip counting everyday and then charting it on a multiplication chart to make the connection to multiplication. The students have started measuring using a standard unit to work on visualizing “twice, three, four etc… times as big”. Next we will be work on graphing and reading multiplication word problems.
Mrs. Watson’s Group: Syler, Joshua, Finley, Alexander, Michael K., Sydney
Objective: Students will organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories by creating questions, gathering data and creating a graph
This group is graphing! We have learned the term Data and are working to collect data for our own graphs. The students have learned how to make a bar graph, picture graph, opinion graph, and a fact graph (using a Venn Diagram). We finished the week by thinking of questions to ask our classmates and are recording their information. Next week they will create their own graph from the graphs we have learned.
Ms. Kelsea’s Group: Natalie, Nora, Thomas, Savannah, Konnar, Eric, Maggie, and Rachel
Objective: Students will apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems by creating their own “Dream Room”.
The older students have been working with area in regards to a room they have created. The students were asked to incorporate three rectangles and three circles in their rooms. First they made a blue print of their rooms, then they were asked to calculate the area of all of the objects. Finally the students made 3-Dimensional models of the rooms they designed. Some of the kids finished sooner and are working on finding the circumference and area of the Earth.
