Number Corner calendar/grid patterns counting estimation probability place value measurement money data A short, daily, skill-building program designed to introduce, reinforce, and extend mathematical concepts regarding:
Investigations Students will understand the fundamental concepts of: number and operations geometry data measurement early algebra
Math Workshop A typical math workshop includes: Opening Work Period Closing example
Math Workshop Example Work Period: “Toss the Chips” Students toss a fixed number of counters and then find the different combinations of that fixed number.
Assessment (in addition to concepts assessed from Investigations curriculum) Kathy Richardson – Mathematical Perspectives Beginning of Year Counting Objects Counting Out a Particular Quantity One More/One Less
Assessment (in addition to concepts assessed from Investigations curriculum) Kathy Richardson – Mathematical Perspectives End of Year Changing Numbers
Math Notebooks Most work created by a student will be recorded in a math notebook. This notebook will remain in the classroom in order to review, and expand upon, mathematical concepts throughout the year.
Math Homework After the first six-weeks grading period weekly homework will begin. The homework should review concepts learned from the previous week.
5E Instructional Model The 5E model is a learning cycle, or sequence, that enables students to build their own understanding from experiences and new ideas.
5E Instructional Model The 5 stages are: Engage Explore Explain Elaborate Evaluate
5E Instructional Model Engage: Raise curiosity and access prior knowledge
5E Instructional Model Explore: Hands on lab activities designed to encourage the generating of questions and possibilities.
5E Instructional Model Explain: Students communicate what they have learned and share ideas with each other.
5E Instructional Model Elaborate: Students expand on what they have learned, make connections, and apply their understanding through additional activities.
5E Instructional Model Evaluate: Assess how much student learning and understanding has taken place.
5E Instructional Model Frequently not all 5 phases are completed in one day. The student directed pace usually expands a lesson chronologically, but it also increases understanding.
Science Notebooks Most work created from the 5E model is recorded in a science notebook. This notebook will remain in the classroom in order to review, and expand upon, scientific concepts throughout the year.
Science Fair The district’s science fair is conducted in the spring. Whole classroom projects are entered, and they can all be viewed at a central location within the district.
