APRIL: Data Collection and Measurement
Homework routine changes to include more Common Core Review pages in preparation for PARCC testing format practice.
MARCH: Capacity, Volume, Area and Perimeter.
FEBRUARY: Fractions!
During February students were studying Fractions in various forms: Number Lines, Sets, Equal Groups, Congruent sizing within a shape and Fraction Strips.
Students are expected to create, compare and locate the values of fractions through teamwork, video lessons and guided lessons throughout our textbook.
JANUARY: This month we will be taking timed tests in Multiplication Facts every Thursday.
Our Current Chapter is called Multiplication Facts (Chapter 6).
Chapter 7 will focus on DIVISION concepts, stories models and number sentences and relating them to Multiplication stories and models.
NEW Homework Routine: Monday  Matching number sentences
Tuesday Problem Solving routine
Wednesday  Workbook pages
Thursday  Workbook pages
December: Multiplication!
It's that time of the year when we make the big step from Addition, Subtraction, Rounding and Place Value to MULTIPLICATION : o
During the month of OCTOBER students began building on the concepts involved in creating Multiplication number sentences. In our Math program we learn to use blocks, shapes, arrays, groups, illustrations, web pages, repeated addition, number lines, patterns, related facts and Problem Solving strategies to solidify our understanding of multiplication concepts.
During homework practice students will use 6 of those strategies using a graphic organizer. On Thursdays, students will use Multiplication Tables to practice the facts only (without pictures, arrays or repeated addition).

During September we have been studying these topics:
Rounding numbers to estimate.
Fact Families using hundreds.
Place Value to the hundred thousands.
Breaking down numbers to add and subtract.
The Current Chapter is called: NUMBER SENSE  We are using estimation and rounding to find sums
example: 86 + 75 =
90 + 80 = 150  9 = 151 (9 comes from rounding up using 4 and 5 extra ones).
and differences and breaking numbers apart to add and subtract:
for example: 84 + 75 = 80 + 4 + 70 + 5 =
150 + 9 = 159
