Roll to One Fraction Game. You win if you get to one without busting ( going over) here are some winners!It was fun ! There was some strategy and patience involved. I lost often myself ! Now we are ready for that butterfly...
Fractions Roll to One.

We need Gallon Man! 
Measurement UnitScaredy Squirrel started the unit with the measurement of time. As a class we began standard measurement units with a variety of tools. They noticed number patterns on rulers, used them as tools and made some more foldables for their notebooks!

Scaredy Squirrel and Elapsed Time, Schedules
& a Survivors Manual…
An Integrated Math Lesson
Student's Personal Daily School Schedule

Scaredy Squirrel has many fears so has a daily schedule to prevent the unknown from happening. Then he jumps into the unknown with a funny outcome.. a new schedule! The students calculated elapsed time between Squirrel's old and new schedule.
Scaredy Squirrel had a survival kit to survive the unknown. The students made one for themselves if they were unexpectantly in an unknown forest.C.O.J.L.

Winter Triangle Tree Geometry Project
Combining Art & Math
This was a multi step & multi day math project that integrated art and geometry. ( Gallons of glue, patience & humor were also required. ) The children covered a piece of paper with overlapping tissue paper ( Can you imagine boys, paint brushes, thin tissue paper and cups of glue? if so you understand why humor on my part was a crucial.) They also used water colors & painted a blank winter scene for their final winter scene. Once everything was dried, using the straight side of their protractors, the children drew 4 different triangles on the back of their tissue paper. They were then asked to cut them out & measure each angle after a mini lesson ( review for most) about the properties of triangles & how to use a protractor. Some figured out that they only needed to measure 2 angles to get the 3rd !! They also were required to fill out their math recording form as they went along completing their scene. This was a lot of hard work but they came out so pretty. The students learned about the angles of triangles and how to use a protractor and so much more!

Data Analysis
Single Bar Graphs
Turkey Feather Math

The children will begin this unit of study with different types of data organized for them. Using a variety of graphing tools the children will begin collecting , organizing and analyzing data that has some relevance to them.
A menu a turkey likes at ThanksgivingTurkey plans his own dinner menu according to his friends' likes and dislikes. The students read Turkey's guests descriptions and with a $50.00 budget plan a menu everyone (including Turkey) can enjoy on Thanksgiving. 
Pumpkins, Math and A Science Project
Why do these heavy pumpkins float?


All the data in one place. It is interesting how each child organized their data.
Integrating Monsters, Writing and Math Word Problems!
A Project
The children were asked to notice specific attributes of their monsters & describe them. They were then assigned mathematical operations and asked to write their own word problem using key words.These problems were then used to make a Popplet and Puppet Pal movie. This required numerous sequential steps to complete. Many did a very good job using a variety of character voices, perspective taking and elaborating on their math story. Enjoy.

A Strategy for Solving Math Word Problems.
CUBES
Solving math word problems with CUBES, a keyword Foldable and pulling it all together with a Popplet! The CUBES form is in the homework section if needed.
When the 5th graders returned they went to Edmodo and watched the 34th grader's SMART movie ( below). Everyone had to answer a very hard question about the poem.
Smart by Shel Silverstein
While the 5th graders are at Camp the 3rd4th graders made a video and a doodle cast
about the poem Smart.
Enjoy.

Place value , a math glyph and a hero.
We start our place value unit with a bit of review and a song  Zero the Hero by School House Rock. As we begin our place value unit & review the 5th graders will be off to camp. So, in the spirit of this mighty hero we all made a hero math glyph to review some basic graphing and data analysis with the 5th graders when they return.
A math glyph is a visual representation of data than can be graphed and analyzed.

Math problem solving & weekly word problems in our math groups has started!
This can be challenging for many. So, we start this year long work with a fun CUBES foldable, a CUBES video and our math notebooks. Understanding the importance of math keywords and using the CUBES strategy helps our students solve word problems. Coming soon for homework! 

Basic Money Skills Review
To start our year long economy system & store we begin the year working on our money skills. The children were asked to make a dollar 4 different ways. They were to make one with the fewest coins, one with the most coins ( using 100 pennies was optional) and two other different ways. They were then to take 4 pictures of their 4 ways and make a Popplet with these pictures.
