Math

Objective: Always work neatly

Handwriting is important, even in math. Taking time to organize work will allow you to focus on the math involved, preventing the opportunity for careless mistakes.

Objective: Always double check your work

You should try 2 strategies for each problem in order to check your work.

Objective: Show all of your thinking on paper

This will help you keep track of what you are thinking and doing. It also helps the teacher to see what you are thinking.

Objective: Represent numbers up to three digits (hundreds, tens, ones) with a strong understanding of place value

When working with a number (such as 258), ask yourself questions such as, "What digit is in the tens place?" (5) and "What is the value of the 5 in this number? (5 groups of 10, or 50)

Play the game "Build a Number"- Use a set of number cards. Choose 3 cards from the deck. Arrange the cards to make the largest three digit number possible using all three cards. Now arrange the cards to make the smallest three digit number possible using all three cards.

Objective: Know and be fluent with addition and subtraction combinations with sums to 10 and related subtraction combinations

Do not worry about memorizing! Instead, practice relating combinations together. For example, practice doubles combinations together (a number plus itself like 3+3). This will help you see patterns in numbers and work to build your number sense. Other combinations to know include adding and subtracting 1 & 2, and combinations of 10.

Play the game "Tens Go Fish." This is just like playing "Go Fish" with number cards. Instead of making matches of the same number, you are working to make combinations of 10 for a match. For example, If I have a 3, I would ask my partner for a 7 to make a combination of 10.)

Objective: Continue repeating and growing patterns, fill in missing terms, and explain your thinking by using the hundreds chart as a model.

Use a hundreds chart to become more familar with number patterns. Choose a number and place a game board marker (bingo chip, coin, etc.) on it. Ask a partner to give you directions to where to move the marker. For example, start on 13. Add 3, subtract 1, add 10. What number did you land on?

Play the game "Guess My Number." Using the hundreds chart, have a partner give you a clue about a number, then you guess which number they are talking about. Example #1- What number has 6 tens and 4 ones? Example #2- What number is three more than 27? Example #3- What number is even, has three groups of ten, and is two less than 32?

Objective: Extend number patterns by skip counting by 2's, 5's, 10's

Practice skip counting daily. Use objects to help you. You can also say them out loud to a friend or family member. When skip counting, you don't have to start with the number you are skip counting by. For example, when skip counting by 10's you can begin with 7 and say "7, 17, 27, 37" etc. The pattern is adding 10 each time, not counting by 7's.

Objective: Identify, combine, and compare values of money (penny, nickel, dime, quarter) up to $1.00. Record using both a dollar sign and cent sign.

Practice identifying coins when out paying for items or counting coins in your piggy bank.

Play a shopping game. Place a price tag on an item like a pencil (example $0.27). What coins would you need to purchase that item? How many different ways can you make $0.27? How can you make $0.27 using the least amount of coins?
