New Math Unit – Geometry

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 23, 2018

We have started a mathematics unit on geometry.  Geometric shapes are all around us, and mathematics can help your child recognize them.  Understanding geometric form will help your child appreciate the geometry found in art, design, architecture, and nature.

In this unit, your child will:

  • Identify and name various shapes with 3 or more sides
  • Build, represent, and describe geometric objects
  • Draw and talk about 2-D shapes and 3-D objects

Encourage your child to look for geometric shapes and objects around the home and neighbourhood, and talk about them.  Here are some suggestions for activities that you can do at home:

Look for geometric shapes in buildings and street signs.  For example, a stop sign is the shape of an octagon, and a yield sign is the shape of a triangle.

Look around the house for geometric shapes.  Talk about the shapes you find.  As you do, look closely at the corners and sides of the shapes.  Count the corners and sides with your child.

Look for 3-D objects around your home, such as a fridge, stove, table legs and so on.  If possible, ask your child to count the number of corners and edges.  Talk about how the object’s shape is related to its purpose.

Look through magazines with your child to find as many different 2-D shapes and 3-D objects as you can find.

Fractions

1

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on May 8, 2018

We are learning about fractions.  Children will build upon their real-world experiences of “fair shares” to recognize a fraction as an expression that relates a part and a whole.

In this unit, your child will:

  • Find fractions of a whole.
  • Compare fractions with the same denominators.
  • Solve fraction problems.

We use fractions every day in many different situations.  Encourage your child to recognize the use of fractions in daily life, for example, when filling a glass half full, measuring ingredients for a recipe, or sharing an apple.

Here are some activities you can do with your child to help reinforce the concept of fractions:

  • When you serve your child food, such as a sandwich or an orange, cut it in half (or thirds, or fourths, and so on) and challenge your child to name the fraction for each part.  After some is eaten, have your child name the fraction for the parts that are left.
  • Provide your child with opportunities to divide food items into equal parts.  Have your child tell the fraction name for each part.
  • Play a game of “fraction concentration.”  On index cards, write the fraction symbols, such as 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, ….1/12.  Prepare a second set of cards, on which you draw pictures to illustrate each fraction.  Shuffle the cards and arrange them face down in a grid.  To play, take turns turning over two cards.  If the fraction picture matches the fraction symbol, the player keeps the cards.  If not, the player replaces the cards.  Play continues until all the cards have been matched.

You Are Invited!

Hi Everybody,

I was away from the school for a couple days because I was attending a great professional development summit with Mr. Cox and Mrs. Mathison. I can say that my mind is full and I have had many ‘wow’ moments that I would like to explore and evaluate further. The best way for me to learn the value of some of the ideas, strategies and tools I have encountered is to come back and explore them with the best little teachers I know (your kids). You may be able to help. We have 10 iPads in our classroom. We can certainly make due with those, but it would be helpful to have a few more devices for the kids to use as we do some exploring. If your children have an iPod touch, an old iPhone or any other device that we can use to access our wireless network at school it would be helpful if you could let them bring it to school. The school can’t be responsible for the devices so please don’t send a shiny new device. I will collect them from the students and keep them stored away during the day when we are not using them.

Here are the most important things to consider:

  • We are using the devices for learning not playing (just like our 3B ipads)
  • If you don’t feel comfortable sending a device for any reason please don’t. It is not a problem.
  • If you do not have a device to send, your child will not be left out so don’t worry about that.
  • If you have time to install an app or two Quizizz and Kahoot would be helpful education apps to put on the device.
  • I can send the devices home each night if you need them at home.
  • If you have questions please let me know.
