which is a GREAT resource for math (and other things!!), and where most of my activities came from.
First off, we started talking about what division was. We made a web of the different strategies we could use to solve division problems, and put them in our notebooks.
|Our Web/Map that we created|
|I showed them an example...although I didn't do the whole array or groupings|
We then talked about the different vocab words that will pop up while working on division-dividend, divisor, quotient. We used a foldable from Fun in 4B's Division Lapbook to add to our notebooks (sorry, no picture...I forgot to take one today!)
Fact Families were up next, and we discussed how the fact family can help you figure our the answer to a division problem.
For the other side of the flashcard, they just created a picture with the numbers hidden in them. They then had to share it with a friend, to see if they could find the numbers, and say all the facts that went with that family.
|Two of my favorites...so creative!|
They LOVED this. They got so creative with trying to hide the numbers, and really did a nice job. It also reinforced the fact family practice and what they stand for.
Purple Sweater: Kohls
White Sweater: NY & Co
Shoes: TJ Maxx
Again, it was warmer in school than I thought it would be, so I layered my sweaters...glad I did, because the purple one was on and off all day.
Those shoes are ones I got while waiting to meet my co-worker/friend for dinner. She had said she was going to be late, so I hopped over to TJ Maxx to see what I could find...only to find these cute shoes! (and I wound up being late...she turned out to be on time and I had to check out!)
|So pretty and gold and sparkly...with a low heel! :D|
Top Half: JCPenny
Pants: Gap Outlet
I had a 504 meeting right after school today-so I was a little dressier with the accessories than I normally am. Fortunately, it went quickly and well (under 20 minutes!), and I know that for the future, this kid will get everything he needs to succeed (I like to set them up in my year, because not everyone gives all the accommodations that I do, and I always want them in place before they go to the middle school.)
Have a wonderful (warm!) weekend!!
