3A learners worked enjoy more time playing and practicing enrichment activities during math.
Today, to further explore subtraction algorithms, they collaborate to make a poster of a 3 digit subtraction problem using as many methods as they could to solve the problem.
Then, they presented to the whole class. Some of the methods they used were, base 10 blocks, number grid, counting up, partial differences…
Well done complex thinkers!
Some students might find fractions hard and feel frustrated when they are not able to accomplish their goals o they simply don’t understand how to solve a fraction problem.
Yesterday we played all sort of games in order to differentiate, review fractions and serve students’ needs. It was indeed a fun way of go back to enrich they learning.
Today, students had the opportunity to create with fractions using the the book Ed Emberley’s Picture Pie as a reference.
Their “Art with Fractions” will soon be in our kidblog.
A fun way to review and practice place value!
The students’ goal was to be able to make and read a 5 digit number, greater than their partner’s number, using cards with numbers from 0 to 9.
During math today, grade 3 students were exposed to different activities to measure the area and the perimeter of different shapes. They used tiles to cover the area of some polygons and geoboards to make their own rectangles and to measure its perimeter.
Today, during math, learners walked around the classroom to find out different items and to measure them. They used both, the U.S. Customary System and the Metric System, so depending on the length of the object, they would measure in in., ft. or yd., and in mm., cm., dm., or m. They also had to measure the length of the shorter side of the classroom.
Ask you child what cm., mm. ft. or yd. stands for.
Students used iPads to play Addition Top It in order to practice addition skills. They also played a game called Name that Number to find equivalent names for a number and to practice computation in a fun way.
This afternoon we estimated the perimeters of four polygons (square, large rhombus, small rhombus and triangle,) and marked off the estimates on line segments . After rolling the pattern blocks along the line segments we realized that three of … Continue reading
Yesterday we finished our math Unit 4 so today we had a multiplication game day where we practiced our skills by playing different games such as, Multiplication Bingo and math games from our blog. Ask your child to show you … Continue reading
Today in Math we made polygons with straws and twist-ties. We measured the sides and found the perimeter of the straw polygons. 3A students learned that the perimeter is the measure of the distance around the shape and they used … Continue reading
