Place Value Party
In learning stations, students prepare for a birthday party by using their knowledge of place value to compose, decompose, and represent numbers using standard, word, and expanded forms.
Can We Get There?
Students will calculate the rate of change and yintercept from a realworld problem represented in a graph, a table, and/or an equation. They will then display and present their findings to the class.
No Interest If Paid in Full: How Much Do I Owe?
Students will write a linear equation from a realworld situation, identify the components of the equation, and interpret their meanings in the problem’s context.
Which One Doesn't Belong? Proportional vs NonProportional Relationships
Students will make connections as they examine proportional and nonproportional relationships represented in functions including tables, equations, graphs, and verbal descriptions and think critically to determine which one does not belong in a set and why.
Balancing Act
Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equal before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.
The Shapes Around Us
Students will make connections between realworld objects and the attributes of twodimensional shapes.
Telling Time to the Minute
The lesson requires students to match times to the nearest fiveminute interval using an analog clock, digital clock, and time written in words. Students will sing a song, show and write the time to the nearest minute, and tell time using analog watches.
Centers in Subtraction
Students will participate in multiple centers including a guided math center that reinforces subtraction concepts.
Cooking Up Word Problems
Students rotate through four stations, collaboratively utilizing different strategies and manipulatives to analyze, explore, solve, and generate realworld culinary problem situations.
Are You in Your Place?
Students will be able to use concrete and pictorial models to compose and decompose numbers with place value.
Step Into the Problem: A Strategy for Visualizing a Math Problem
Teachers will show students a tool to help them understand a problem situation. The tool called Step into the Problem, will walk students through the steps of comprehending a problem: Read the problem, Turn and Talk, Act it Out, Notice and Wonder, and Reflect. Students will be given a problem situation and will go through the steps to show that they understand the problem situation.
Shop 'til You Drop
Students will identify the value of coins and determine the total value of a group of coins to select items to purchase from a given list.
Ravaged Robot
Students will learn the concept of area by building a robot using manipulatives and transferring the representation onto grid paper. Then, students will determine the area of each designated body part on their think sheet.
Comparing Fractional Parts
Students will participate in wholegroup and smallgroup instruction as they collaborate and use manipulatives, visuals, and handson activities to explore fractional parts. Ultimately, students will understand that when dividing a whole into fractions, the smaller the fractional part, the greater the number of parts, and the larger the part, the fewer the number of parts.

Subtraction on the Move
The students will participate in a number talk focused on subtraction with the subtrahend of nine. Then they will be paired to rotate around the room working subtraction problems with and without regrouping.

Finding Common Denominators
Students will work collaboratively to explore and sketch solutions to realworld addition problems involving fractions with unlike denominators. Students will be given the opportunity to use manipulatives and participate in group discussions to reflect on their learning.
