Rationale

Mathematics
Four Weeks of 30 Minute Periods
Students will have the ability to interpret products or
whole numbers and use multiplication and divisions
within 100 confidently. Students will be able to
incorporate the multiplication and division skills they
learn in their everyday life. The students will use of
Kidspiration which incorporates visual learning, and it
helps students to see how ideas are connected in
symbols and charts and realize how information can be
grouped and organized. It also helps the students
integrate new knowledge and helps students think
critically. They can use the main points of the lesson plan
in day-to-day activities. Teacher will explain how to use
Kidspiration which is a concept mapping software and
use the template assigned. Kidspiration has linear
writing mode, a chart and graph making mode, and a
money counting mode, as well as colorful graphics and a
voice. Both can be used as brainstorming tools and as a
presentation organizer as well and because these
products promote visual learning, there are may
opportunities for students to use the software to create
diagrams and charts of curriculum ideas. The teacher is
using the Universal Design for Learning approach as it
helps serve all learners, regardless of ability, disability,
age, gender, or cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
Kidspiration’s use in the classroom will fulfill the 3
principals of the Universal Design for Learning approach,
it allows teachers a variety of methods to present
information, students will be able to demonstrate what
they know through multiple means, and the templates
and tools provided by the Kidspiration software will tap
into the students interests, motivating students by
offering adjustable levels of challenge.

3. Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve
word problems in situations involving equal groups,
arrays, and measurements quantities.
4. Determine the unknown whole number in a

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to:
 Solve for the product of whole numbers.
 Solve for the quotients of whole numbers.
 Solve by using multiplication and division within
100 to solve word problems in situations involving
equal groups.
 Determine the unknown whole number in a
multiplication or division equation.
 Work efficiently with a group of other students.
 Brainstorm and negotiate successfully among the
group.
 Show that a variety of methods may present
information.

Technology Uses

Students will use an approved link to access the 30 Day
free trial of Kidspiration. There will also be helpful links in
case the students have any trouble with using
Kidspiration. Teacher will also create a blog for students
to be able to communicate and brainstorm with her/him
and each other. The directions and rubric will also be
posted in the blog for any child who lost the original
sheet. Students will also use Quizard Lite to improve in
their multiplication and division skills at home. There will
be a survey provided so that the teacher may assess
what the children have grasped from the lesson plan, and
on the methods such as the use of Kidspiration, Group
work, and Visual learning.
 Notebooks for brainstorming.
 iPhone or iPad in order to access the apps.
 Computer’s in order to access the blog and the

Procedures

Kidspiration Website.
 Rubric Sheet
 Flash Drive
1. Teacher will begin by evaluating the student’s
current knowledge of multiplication and division of
whole numbers by creating an entertaining game
for the class to participate.
2. Teacher will then proceed to teach the learning
objectives and in the end of every week he or she
will present the students with a survey about what
they understood and what they did not.
3. Teacher will use the survey as a guide in order to
focus on any lacking areas he or she might have
missed or did not focus as much in.
4. Teacher will then introduce the group project and
the requirements needed for it.
5. The video needs to incorporate how students could
use multiplication, division and the skills they’ve
learned in their daily lives.
6. Teacher will then split the students in groups
between 3 and 4 students.
7. Teacher will then explain how to use the Internet
efficiently and safely.
8. Teacher will then provide link to the website in
which students will be able to download the 30 Day
Free Trial of Kidspiration.
(http://www.inspiration.com/FreeTrial/Kidspiration)
9. Once the software is downloaded, students will look
at the instructions posted on the blog that the
teacher has instructed.
10.
The Teacher will post that in order to access
the template needed for the assignment, students
must click on the software and under activities they
click on math. Once the pop up page opens,
students will be instructed to click on the building
array template and begin the assignment.
11.
The students will then be assigned of their
roles in their group, Leader, Recorder, Checker and
Spokesperson.
12.
The Leader of the group is the student
responsible who organizes the final product of the
project and make sure it meets up to the rubric.
13.
The Recorder is the person responsible for
taking notes whenever the group meets and
keeping track of group information.

Assessment

14.
The Checker is the person who is responsible
for double-checking the information and
presentation.
15.
The spokesperson is the person who is
responsible for summarizing the final project.
16.
The teacher will continuously update the blog
page he or she creates in order to be helpful to the
students.
17.
The teacher will post a survey for the
students to take afterward the assignment in order
to assess their knowledge.
18.
The teacher will also make notecards on
Quizard Lite, which allows the teacher to write a set
of twenty flash cards online so students could
access the notecards when at home, and continue
to practice their skills.
 Students are able to solve for the product of whole
numbers.
 Students are able to solve for the quotients of while
numbers.
 Students are able to solve word problems within
100 using multiplication and division.
 Students are able to know the unknown whole
number in a multiplication or division equation.
 Students are able to efficiently work well with other
