Math Center Creation (still working on this)
Explain to students that today we're going to start doing center activites. In a moment, I'll be walking them through all the different activites they'll be doing. Show students on CorkboardMe the list of all the center activites, with the list of students' names underneath
- Students will practice counting the right amount of change by putting the correct amount of change in an arcade game
2 Direct Instruction
Introduce students to each game:
- in Bugs and Numbers, students will be counting money by putting the correct change in arcade games. Since the app doesn't show the teacher what students got wrong or struggled with, students will be instructed to complete a self-reflection work sheet at the end that simply says: "I had an easy time with __________"
- "I had a hard time with ___________"
- For modifications, smiley/sad faces can be used instead to highlight the specific skills
Key Standards Supported
Number And Operations In Base Ten
Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
