Before The BIG Show Tips for Helping Your Child Before the Test Focus on what your child is doing right! Let your child know that you are proud of his or her efforts and have confidence in what he or she can accomplish. Explain how important the test is, but do not put undue pressure on your child. Make sure your child sleeps well for several nights before the test. Have your child eat a good, healthy breakfast. Make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather and classroom climate to avoid discomfort during the test. Make sure your child arrives on time on the day of the test to avoid unnecessary stress. Remind your child to work through each question carefully and use their STRATEGIES!

Websites to assist you with Reading How do I help my child? –Read nightly. At least 20 minutes of daily reading can help your child grow to love reading. –Question your child as you both read

Objective 2: The student will demonstrate an understanding of patterns, relationships, and algebraic reasoning. Uses patterns to solve problems. Identify and extend whole-number and geometric patterns to make predictions and solve problems Identify patterns in multiplication facts using concrete objects, pictorial models, or technology Identify patterns in related multiplication and division sentences (fact families), such as 2 × 3 = 6, 3 × 2 = 6, 6 ÷ 2 = 3, 6 ÷ 3 = 2. Uses lists, tables, and charts to express patterns and relationships Generate a table of paired numbers based on a real-life situation, such as insects and legs Identify patterns in a table of related number pairs based on a real-life situation and extend the table
Objective 3: The student will demonstrate an understanding of geometry and spatial reasoning. Uses formal geometric vocabulary Name, describe, and compare shapes and solids using formal geometric vocabulary. Recognize congruence and symmetry Identify congruent shapes and identify lines of symmetry in shapes Recognizes that numbers can be represented by points on a line. Locate and name points on a line using whole numbers [and fractions such as halves].
Objective 4: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and uses of measurement. Selects and uses appropriate units and procedures to measure length and area. Estimate and measure lengths using standard units such as inch, foot, yard, centimeter, decimeter, and meter Use linear measure to find the perimeter of a shape Use concrete models of square units to determine the area of shapes Measures time and temperature Tell and write time shown on traditional and digital clock Use a thermometer to measure temperature Applies measurement concepts Measure to solve problems involving length, area, temperature, and time.
Objective 5: The student will demonstrate an understanding of probability and statistics. Solves problems by collecting, organizing, displaying, and interpreting sets of data. Collect, organize, record, and display data in pictographs and bar graphs where each picture or cell might represent more than one piece of data Interpret information from pictographs and bar graphs Use data to describe events as more likely, less likely, or equally likely.
Objective 6: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the mathematical processes and tools used in problem solving. Solve problems connected to everyday experiences and activities in and outside of school Identify the mathematics in everyday situations Use a problem-solving model that incorporates understanding the problem, making a plan, carrying out the plan, and evaluating the solution for reasonableness Select or develop an appropriate problem-solving strategy, including drawing a picture, looking for a pattern, systematic guessing and checking, acting it out, making a table, working a simpler problem, or working backwards to solve a problem. Relate informal language to mathematical language and symbols The student uses logical reasoning to make sense of his or her world. The student is expected to make generalizations from patterns or sets of examples and non- examples.

Ways to Help your Child in Mathematics Have them do their homework! Let them explain to you what they did in class and on their homework to check for understanding. PLEASE PRACTICE BASIC MATH FACTS WITH YOUR CHILD (addition, subtraction, and multiplication). Please practice addition and subtraction with regrouping. Take them to the grocery store and let them estimate your bill. Get take-out dinner menus from restaurants and ask them to add up the total for different meals. Let them cook with you and do the measurement. Use recipes to double or use only half. Ask them to use conversions. Let them practice elapsed time by scheduling the day with you.

Frisco ISD Scientific Method Question – investigative or testable Hypothesis – What do you predict will happen? (If…then…because…) Materials- What will I need? Procedure – What steps will I follow? Observations and Data Collections – What did I observe using my five senses? What did I record? Results – What happened? Conclusion – Was my hypothesis correct? Why or why not? What did I learn? Extension – I wonder What would happen if…? What would I change? I wonder… How could I apply…
Example Questions 1. The drawing shows a model of the Earth, moon, and sun system made from foam balls. What is one way to make this model more accurate? A Use wooden blocks instead of foam balls B* Make the sun larger than the Earth and the moon smaller C Move the sun closer to the Earth D Change the order of the foam balls to be moon, sun, Earth egg larva pupa adult 2. Which animal goes through the stages of metamorphosis shown above? A* Beetle B Frog C Bird D Snake
Test Strategy LAB Strategy This strategy is used to help the students answer various questions. L: look at and label all diagrams, charts, graphs, pictures, key words, vocabulary, etc A: ask and analyze; what is the big science idea? Have I seen this before? B: be thorough; Have I labeled? analyzed vocabulary? Disproved and Proved my answers?
