IN: Each student will have a piece of paper that is divided into columns and rows. The number of columns dictates how far you want the place value lesson to go, 5 rows goes into the tens of thousand, 3 rows into the hundreds. The number of rows dictates the number of games to be played. IN/MA:The teacher has a student roll a dice to see which is the first digit that needs to be placed. Once the digit is revealed, the student needs to decide where that digit should be placed. If the goal is to create the highest number into the hundreds and the first digit rolled is a 1, I would hope the student would not place it into the hundreds column but into the ones column instead. MA: Once all the students have written down where that first digit is located then

Add a dice a day until they get to the1 millions place (7 dice). G/GA/MA: Keep your dice around for the next game, too. Pairs of students each make four columns on a sheet of paper or chalkboard, labeled "thousands" "hundreds" "tens" and "ones". Then they take turns rolling one die. After each roll, both students must place the number in one of their columns. After four rolls, compare the resulting fourdigit numbers. The high (or low) number winner receives one point, and play continues to a predetermined number. If both students get the same number, no points

also ask students to give how much the digit is worth.

Ask a student to write 1/2 on the board to show that one out of the two equal parts is now shaded. IN: Introduce the vocabulary words numerator and denominator. The numerator is the number of parts shaded and the denominator is the total number of equal parts. (For those students who have difficulty remembering which is the numerator and which is the denominator, try this memory association technique----In a fraction, one number is UP above the line and one is DOWN below the line. Numerator has an "u" in it and so does up; denominator begins with "d" and so does down.) Repeat the same activity with pieces of paper, demonstrating 1/4, 3/4, 1/3, 2/3, 1/8. Each time, a student should write the fraction on the board and identify the numerator and the denominator.

MA/PA: Now have them refold the same paper and then fold it in half once again. Unfold. How many equal parts now?

DAY 95 KK SOL M 3.6 Adding and Subtracting Fractions
MT/G/MA:Have students work in small groups preparing sets of fraction cards. Have students write a fraction on the bottom of each card. Then draw a corresponding geometric representation on the top. The students should then cut each card in half with a different, irregular cut. Display the top part and have another group match the bottom part. Then display the bottom portion and have a different group match the top part. Since the cuts are irregular, if a picture does not match a fraction, the two parts will not fit together. Then have the class work as a whole. Name a fraction and have each group that used it show the picture they drew. Students need to know that there are many geometric representations that can be used for the same fraction.

MT/R: The teacher will discuss with the students the meaning of the word "equivalent." The teacher will say "What does the word equivalent sound like?" The students should say that it sounds like the word "equal," which they are familiar with. The teacher will let the students know that they will learn about equivalent fractions in today's lesson. Equivalent fractions are "equal" fractions; they are different fractions that name the same number.

MT/G: Introduce the following “game” to the class: Alice is trying to create different sums by moving the decimal points in two numbers, 236 and 89. To keep the number of possibilities reasonable, the constraint is added that she can only place the decimal point just before, between, or just after the given digits. Zeros may then be added so long as they do not change the value of the number. Here is her work so far a. 236+89=325 b. 23.6+8.9=32.5 c. 23.6+89.0=112.6 d. 23.6+0.089=23.689 Bill says that the 0 added in problem c is alright, right the 0 added after the decimal point in problem d does not fit the rules. Why is Bill correct? Bill says that Alice could have written the problem 23.60+0.89=24.49. Why does Bill’s problem fit the rules?

Students will discuss the types of clocks we use now, digital and analog.

DAY 133 KK SOL M 3.9 Time
MT/MO/DR: Write times to the hour from 1 o'clock to 12 o’clock on index cards and a number from 1 to 12 on a tag board square. Place the numbers 1-12 in a large circle to form a clock face. Children sit around the clock. Give 12 children each a time card to keep facedown. Two volunteers, one taller than the other, stand in the center of the clock. Ask: Who should be the minute hand? Why? (the taller child because the minute hand is the long hand.) Where should the taller child point to show 1 o’clock? (to 12) Where should the shorter child point? (to 1) Children take turns holding up their index cards. Students tell where the children representing the hands should point to show that time. Repeat the activity until all children have a turn to show the time.

DAY 134 KK SOL M 3.9 Time
MT/A/MA/G: Have each student make a paper plate clock face. Using a brad fastener, attach tag board or construction paper hands to the center of the plate.

Define sports and travel sections outcome as a result, of newspapers, and a large what “comes out.” sheet of construction Present the expression paper. Have students cut “equally likely.” Explain out pictures and descriptions of events that that they have learned the terms likely and are likely to happen this equal. Ask them what week. Repeat the step they think equally likely above for events that are means. Discuss their unlikely to happen. Tell students to fold their responses; explain that construction paper in half equally likely describes and label one half “Likely outcomes that have the Events” and the other half same probability.
“Unlikely Events.” Have students paste their “events” on the appropriate side of the paper.

DAY 165 KK SOL M 3.13 Probability MT/MA: Using construction paper have students design a number cube with onedigit numbers with three possible outcomes, each of a different likelihood. Have the students’ label the cube faces with a number written on tape. (One number on one face, another number on two faces, the third number on 3 faces.) Have students identify the most likely and least likely outcomes. Then have students rule the cube 20 times and record data. DA: Students who cannot easily cut and glue the cube together will have a pre-made cube given to them, they will just need to fill in the numbers.

WEEK 34 DAY 166 KK SOL M 3.13 Probability MT/MA/GA: Give each pair of students a bag of M&M’s. Have students count the total number of pieces and record. Have students count the number of candies per color and record. Predict the probability of each color being chosen from the bag. Have students place all the candy back in the back. Pulling one piece of candy out of the bag, have students record the outcome of 20 attempts. Discuss the results as a class.

As a class the students will role-play the story. Afterwards the teacher will discuss the descending pattern in the story. The teacher will also introduce ascending patterns. Students will write definitions for each word down in their notebooks. MT/W: Students will write their own stories that include an ascending or descending pattern. Their patterns must consist of at least 5 items. DA: Students that have difficulty with writing and hand writing skills may use a computer to type their stories. DAY 170 FIELD TRIP 4 In small groups

students will take a tour of the Virginia Capital and learn about it’s government from past to present. Students who are not on the tour will make a sketch of the building, highlighting geometric shapes, geometric concepts and patterns within the architecture.

Were the data useful? Did the data strengthen the argument? Have students provide evidence to support their ideas.

MT/W/PS: Have students write a word problem that can be solved by finding a pattern. Tell them to show part of their pattern that repeats. Students can challenge their classmates to solve their problems.
