Our new Math Unit (Unit One: Patterning and Place Value) will be a breeze for the boys and girls.
Back at the beginning of the school year, students completed an activity called a "Number Sense Folder". This project touched on many of the concepts that will be covered in this unit.
Because we began the year with Unit Two, which covered addition and subtraction, I think students will find this unit a bit easier.
Most of the work students will do comes from their textbook (Math Makes Sense) and EQAO sample problems. We also mix in "the basics" to make sure everyone has a strong and healthy foundation.
Our workbook pages have a "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" theme to them. I'm hoping to combine the world of Math and story elements in the coming week or two!
Even though students won't write stories until April/May, good readers need to be able to identify the elements of a story such as: setting, plot, characters, problem and resolution. I've never done something like this before, so hopefully this will all go smoothly!
