Technology:
Technology was used throughout the unit, whether it was used by the teacher or students it enhanced lessons to benefit the students learning. The Smartboard was used daily to allow for smooth transitions and engaging lessons. The students enjoyed using the Smartboard for engaging activities, solving equations, or viewing videos and PowerPoint’s. Near the end of daily guided practices the students were given opportunities to come to the Smartboard

and solve equations and then explain steps to finding the solutions. The students were chosen at random because with such a large class not all students were able to use the Smartboard during one lesson. The students also participated in Smartboard activities which required students to come to the Smartboard and drag items to their appropriate position. Technology was also used in other areas to benefit students learning, students had opportunities to use online websites to practice math skills used in class. The students were allowed to use the websites during down time, after test, or during computer lab time. Technology is a familiar tool the students are fully aware of and enjoy while also being beneficial.

Materials:

Learning Bridge Video Kite activity Pencil Common Core Textbook Vocabulary notebook Glue

Procedures:
Getting Started: The students will transition into the classroom and begin by looking at the board to determine what supplies they need for the day. The students will begin the unit by completing a pre-assessment which includes defining and using properties of multiplication. Kite Activity & Definitions (NCTM 2,3,4,5) (ELA: writing) The students will define and classify each property using a Kite worksheet. The students will follow along as each step is modeled on the Smartboard. The students will begin by numbering each section in their individual kite; the step will be modeled through the Smartboard. Section 1: Commutative Property (NCTM 1,2,3) The class will begin with the section labeled #1, the students will follow along as the steps are modeled. The term will be placed on the top line of the section. The class will then conduct a short discussion of the commutative property. The class will then follow as the property is defined. Following the definition examples will be modeled as the students follow along and then repeat the process. Guided Practice and Individual Practice (NCTM 1,4,5) After completing section one of the kite activity the students will flip their paper over to the section labeled one and follow along as two of the five equations are completed as guided practice. The students will then complete the final three equations of the associative property individually. The class will hold a short discussion to determine their solutions. Section 2: Associative Property (NCTM 1,2,3) The class will continue to the section labeled #2, the students will follow along as the steps are modeled. The term will be placed on the top line of the section. The class will then conduct a short discussion of the associative property. The class will then follow as the property is defined.

The students will follow along as the Power Point is visually presented on the Smartboard. The students will maintain their focus towards the slide show as examples are modeled. The students will then complete several practice problems using their individual whiteboards.

Let’s Review (Slide 2): The students will review previous terms to present when discussing multiplication. The term factor and product will be presented on the Power Point.

Factors- Numbers multiplied together Product- The answer in a multiplication equation Modeling (Slide 3-10): The students will continue to observe the power point as the first equation is modeled, 26x12. The first step is to make sure the place values are lined up. Begin with multiplying the bottom factor’s one’s place with the top factors one’s place. Reminder to the students: Think, 2 x 6 equals 12. Because there is still the tens place to multiply, you must carry the 1. Next, multiply the 2 and the other 2. Then, remember to add your carry of 1. Hint for the students: Think, 2x2=4+1=5 Next, because we are going to the next place value (tens), we need to use a 0 for a place holder. Place the 0 under the 2 in the products Next, begin to multiply the 1in the tens place with the top line factor. Hint for students: Think 1x6=6. Add the ones place. Carry is necessary. Add the tens place. Carry is necessary. Add the hundreds place. Carry is necessary. Finally, add the two product lines to find the final product. Guided Practice (Slide 11-14): The students will begin solving equations as guided practice. The students will use their individual whiteboards and markers to present their solutions.

Materials:
Morning Work Power Point (Teacher made) The Distributive Property Power Point (Teacher made) Learning Bridge Video- Pearson Success Its Distributed Worksheet Scissor Glue

Procedures:
Pose the Problem- Morning Work (NCTM 1,2,3,4) (EEDA)
The students will transition into the class and gather materials needed for the day. The materials needed will be listed on the board for the students. When the last students enter the classroom the timer will be set for two minutes. The students will have no homework from the previous night to be checked. The students will begin working on their morning work which will be presented on the Smartboard. The students will have three to five minutes to complete the morning work. Pose the Problem: “How can you use numerical expressions and only the numbers shown on the rectangle to find the area of the un-shaded rectangle on the left? Be sure to use all three numbers. Tell how you decided.” The morning work will open the new topic being covered, distributive property of multiplication. The class will discuss how solutions were found. Inform the students this is an example of the material that will be covering for the day.

Distributive Power Point (Teacher made) (NCTM 1,2,3,4,5) (ELA: Viewing, Listening, & Writing)
The slide show will present definitions, examples, and steps of the distributive property. The students will follow along as the Power Point is visually presented on the Smartboard. The students will be given a handout after examples have modeled. The handout requires the students to follow along with examples and steps as the PowerPoint is presented. Meaning of Distribute (Slide 2-8) : The first example provided for the students represents five girls receiving an equal amount of boxes. The students will gain and understanding from the first example that distribute means “to give out.” How to Use Distributive Property (Slides 9-13): The students will observe as slides nine through thirteen models how to use distributive property when solving an equation that include a two digit number multiplied by a one digit number, 43 x 5. The students will continue to follow along as they see the two digit number, 43 placed into expanded form, 40 + 3. The students will observe as each partial number will be multiplied by 5, which will result in having two partial products, 200 and 15. The partial products will then be added to find the solution, or final product of 215. Additional modeling (Slide 14-19): The students will follow along as another equation is modeled from the Power Point. The students will observe as 53 x 6 is completing through three steps. The two digit number will be placed into expanded form followed by multiplying each by six. The partial products will then be added together to come to the final product. Guided Practice (Slide 20-28): The class will then solve equations as a guided practice, this will be completed using the handout. The equation used for the guided practice represents 4 x 28. The students will begin by writing down the first step of the distributive property. 1. Break apart the double-digit number. The students will then follow the step and put 28 into expanded form, 20 + 8. Following the first step the students will write the second step on their handout. 2. Multiply each part by 4 (distribute the 4). The students will then complete the step using the equation on their handout. The students will write the final step on their handout, 3. Sum the two products. After writing the steps on their handout the students will complete the action using the equation. The guided practice allows the students to follow along with the teacher as the distributive property is used as well as providing the students with examples to refer back to. Try This (Slide 29-30): The class will hold a small discussion to determine how to solve additional distributive equations. At this time the students should become familiar with the steps used to complete equations that require the use of the distributive property. Finding the Area/Distributing More than once (Slide 31-44): Finding the area of a rectangle requires the students to distribute numbers to more than one product. This has not been shown in previous equations but will be introduced using Area. The

students will have a short discussion on how to find the area of a rectangle (length x width) before continuing to the equation. The students will observe as the power point continues to show the students the steps and how to find a solution to the equation. The students will observe as the rectangle is broken apart to represent the expanded form. The power point then provides the students with a visual of how to solve for the product of each section of the rectangle. The students will observe how the two rectangles are placed together again to represent adding the products to find the solution. Guided Practice (Slide 45- 51): The following the example the students will complete another guided practice using their handout. The students will solve for the area of the rectangle with the length 25 yards and width of 9 yards. The students will follow as they watch the steps performed by the teacher. The students will also write the steps to solving equations that require the use of the distributive property. The students will begin by breaking apart the two digit number into expanded form, then multiplying each number by 9, and finally adding the two products together to result in the solution. The students will continue to follow as each step is performed on the Smartboard. Practice Time (Slides 53-62) : The students will practice the distributive property by answering several questions presented through the power point. The students will have to show the correct way to represent equations before distributing. Each solution will be discussed as a class before continuing to the next problem. The students will complete the practice on a separate piece of paper to be used again in future sections. Individual Practice (Slide 64-73): The students will complete an individual practice to solve for area of two rectangles that measures 4 yards in width and 3 and 9 yards in length. This will be done on the same piece of paper used for earlier practice; this will be turned in at the end of class. The students will complete this individually as the teacher continues to monitor the students work. The solution will be discussed and visually represented on the power point; the slides will provide the students with the steps used to find the solution. Define Distributive (Slide 74): The students will complete the handout by defining the distributive property in the designated area on their handout.

Note booking (NCTM 4,5) (ELA: Writing)
The students will complete the activity by cutting the handout into two pieces and placing it into their vocabulary notebooks. The students will label the page and then glue each part of the handout in their notebooks. Placing the handouts and examples in their notebooks provides the students with a reference when studying.

Group Work (Its Distributed-Worksheet) (NCTM 1,2,3) (ELA: Speaking & Listening)
Following the slide show and note booking the students will complete a worksheet in small groups. The students will continue to discuss the steps with peers to find solutions of equations using the distributive property. Small group work allows the students to discuss and compare answers of the content. The students will be monitored during group work to answer any questions and keep students on task.

Learning Bridge (Pearson Success) (NCTM 1,2,4,5) (ELA: Viewing)
Depending on the time constraint the lesson will conclude with a short three minute video provided by the new Common Core tools. The video will crystallize the content covered and provide the students with yet another visual and auditory example of the distributive property.

Homework P.3-5 (Workbook)
The students will complete a page in their workbooks for homework (P 3-5). This provides the students with extra practice and

ensures they understand the content. The homework will be reviewed the following day.

Activity Analysis:
The PowerPoint used to present the distributive property includes examples, definition, and practice time. The students will follow along and chime in during the guided practice.

Materials:
Text Book: “Because of Winn Dixie” Sketch to Stretch Activity Sheet

Procedures:
Introduction:
(Attention Grabber) “I have a three year old dog named Cooper, who I spend a large amount of time with. Well every time I grab the broom to sweep the floor he runs away and hides in a corner. Cooper will shake uncontrollably until I am completely done sweeping and walk over to the corner where he is hiding and start petting him. He has always been terrified of the broom and I cannot figure out why. For three years now Cooper has done the same thing, Cooper has a pathological fear of brooms. I want everyone to keep pathological fear in their minds as I read aloud chapter eleven from “Because of Winn Dixie.”

(Listening, Viewing, & Thinking) Chapter eleven from “Because of Winn Dixie” will be read aloud to the students. Chapter eleven consists of pages 72 through page 78. During the reading the students will be asked questions to ensure the students are following along. Asking questions also allow the students to retain the information just read.

Page 73: “What do you think Winn Dixie is doing?” Page 74: “Do you think the preacher is going to be mad?” Page 75: “What is Winn Dixie’s pathological fear?” Page 78: “Do you think the preacher is going to get rid of Winn Dixie?”

Discussion:
(Speaking, Listening, and Thinking) The class will conduct a short discussion on what a pathological fear is and what Winn Dixie’s pathological fear is. The students will be asked what some of their pathological fears consist of.

Sketch and Stretch:
The students will complete the sketch and stretch activity independently to define their own pathological fear. The sketch and stretch allows the students to stretch the content from the text into their own life experiences. The students will also write about a one time they have faced their pathological fear, this could be a dream or something they believe will happen one day. Some students may not have encountered their fear, the student may write a sentence of something they do not want to encounter because of their fear.

Model the Sketch and Stretch:
(Thinking, Viewing, Listening) The sketch and stretch will be modeled for the students on the Smart board. This allows the students to understand how to complete the activity individually. The pathological fear will be written first, an incident that occurred because of my pathological fear. Example: Sketch to Stretch
My Pathological Fear is:

__________________Cockroaches________________

One Time…_I was staying over at a friend’s house and I saw a cockroach crawl up the wall beside the couch, I was so scared I did not sleep at all that night because I was scared it was going to crawl on me, or worse in my mouth!

Draw a Picture:

*Picture of cockroaches and me lying in bed with WIDE open eyes!*

Finish Sketch to Stretch Activity:
(Writing, Thinking, Viewing, & Speaking) The students will complete the sketch to stretch activity. The students will be given ten minutes to complete the activity, which will be hung outside the classroom for peers to observe. After completing the sketch and stretch the students will discuss their work among their group members. This allows for the students to compare and discuss pathological fears. If available time the students will be allowed to come to the front of the class to share their pathological fears and pictures drawn.

Individual/Group Reading: (Reading, Viewing, Thinking, and possibly Listening)
After completing the sketch to stretch from chapter eleven the students will be assigned chapter twelve to read either individually or within a group. Providing the students with an option allows the students to fully understand the text, either without any distractions or through group discussion.

Activity Analysis:
The sketch and stretch completed allows the students to connect to the text “Because of Winn Dixie.” The students will gain and understanding of what a pathological fear is from the text and will be able to relate to the text by presenting their own pathological fear. The activity consists of writing and drawing to share their fears. The activity will be done individually but can be presented in groups or to the whole class.

Telegraph (2 Minutes) “The telegraph was invented by Samuel Morse. The telegraph system sends messages by operating a press switch. The switch sends a signal as well as sending an electric current through a wire which is located to a receiving machine. The code is represented using long and short pulses of electric current; each electric current represents a different letter. Hence the name of the code, Morse code.” (Slide 8)
