Math Hello Letter for Feb. 22, 2016 Week

Dear Parents,

The Fraction Unit is over for the whole class instruction; however, if your child made below 70 on his or her fraction benchmark I will be working with them during intervention time. I will also be sending home extra practice for your child if he or she did not master the fraction skills.

We started our new unit on Friday.  We will be working on standard 3.OA.8:   Solve two‐step word problems using the four operations.  Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity.  Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.  (This standard is limited to problems posed with whole numbers and having whole‐number answers; students should know how to perform operations in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order.  This unit will also include geometry skills (3.G.1).

Please check your child’s highest multiplication scores at the bottom of last week’s hello letter.   We have been doing our multiplication drills, since August.  I have been doing the X drills the same way all year.  For example:  Child A makes a 60 on his 6 facts  Next X drill:  Child A makes an 80= Grade Book:  The 60 becomes an 80 in the grade book.  It is very important for the children to know his or her facts for these word problems and skills that we are doing in class. I also do oral assessments on the X drills as well.  There are websites and tips listed @ highlandhomeschoolinsites under my name in classroom assignments.

 

Mon.:   Solve word problems in varied contexts using a letter to represent the unknown.

 

Tues.:  They explore the attributes of quadrilaterals and classify examples into various categories, including recognizing the characteristics of polygons (3.G.1)

 

Wed.:  Compare and classify polygons.

 

Thurs.:  X Drills on the X facts that you have not mastered in the 3rd 9 Weeks

Draw polygons with specified attributes to solve problems.

 

Fri.:  Quiz on the skills from this week

Reason about composing and decomposing polygons using tetrominoes.

Dear Parents,

Our fraction unit should end this week if the majority of the students master our Fraction Benchmark test on Wednesday.  We will begin our new unit on Problem Solving and Geometry on Thursday if everything goes as planned with the test.  Students will get intensive practice with word problems, as well as hands-on investigation experiences with geometry and perimeter. Students will solve one- and two-step word problems, classify shapes based on their attributes, learn what a tessellation is, study perimeter and area, and end with a review of Grade 3 fundamental skills.  We will have multiplication drills again next week on Thursday, Feb. 25.  Thanks very much for all of your encouragement and guidance and home.  Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns about our child.  This hello letter and helpful websites are listed on the highlandhomeschoolinsites.  Stride Academy login is kcc10242.  It is an awesome tool for increasing your child’s math skills.

 

Monday:  We will be reviewing the fraction module for our benchmark test on Wed.  Today we will review fractions.  This unit concludes the module with comparing fractions that have the same numerator. As students compare fractions by reasoning about their size, they understand that fractions with the same numerator and a larger denominator are actually smaller pieces of the whole (3.NF.3d).   Homework: Study guide

Tuesday:  Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3. Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. c. Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form of 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.  Homework:  Study guide

Wednesday:  Review the Fraction Unit

Thursday:  FRACTION BENCHMARK TEST

Friday:  The module begins with solving one- and two-step word problems based on a variety of topics studied throughout the year, using all four operations.  Next students explore geometry.  Solve word problems in varied contexts using a letter to represent the unknown. We started this on bell work last week.  Homework:  1.  Lena’s dad gives the cashier $30 to pay for 6 liters of apple cider.  The cashier gives him $6 in change.   How much does each liter of apple cider cost?  SHOW your work in your journal.  2.  The apple orchard has 152 apple trees.  There are 88 trees with red apples.  The rest of the trees have green apples.  How many more trees have red apples than green apples?  

We will solve word problems with one and two step word problems with addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication.

Math Hello Letter Jan.5-8, 2016

Dear Parents,

Happy new year to you and your family!  I am very excited about jumping into our new standards.  We will be reviewing tomorrow, wrapping up the second nine weeks, and beginning our new standard on Thursday.  Our new standard will be fractions.  I introduce this unit by using real brownies.  If you can send an uncut 13 X 9 brownie on Thursday for our activity, then please let me know below.

_______Yes, I can send a 13 x 9 whole brownie uncut on Thursday.

_______My child is allergic to an ingredient in a brownie.

THANKS very much for all of your help with our child’s education. The children really learn the concept using a real item.

 

Tuesday: Review the second nine weeks skills and facts

Wednesday:  Multiplication Drills 2-9 X facts that your child has not mastered yet this nine weeks.  Finish the skills with the second nine weeks covered before Christmas

Thursday:  Brownie introduction investigation,

New STANDARD:  Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.

Specify and partition a whole into equal parts, identifying and counting unit fractions using concrete models.

Friday: Specify and partition a whole into equal parts, identifying and counting unit fractions by folding fraction strips.

Math Hello Letter for November 30, 2015 Mrs. Phillips

 

Dear Parents,

Thank you very much for your help with the sweet shop at the PTA Fall Festival. I sent home thank you notes with each child on Friday before Thanksgiving.  I deeply appreciate your help!  It was a huge success. We sold out of all of the delicious sweets!

This week we will have a benchmark on perimeter and area on Thursday.  We will continue to solve problems with arrays to help with this skill. We will have our 2-8 multiplication facts scrambled in 30 seconds.  The 9 facts will be in order this week.  Please check your child’s highest multiplication scores at the bottom of this hello letter.  We will start 2 and 3 digit multiplication very soon.  It is very important for the children to know his or her facts for these word problems and skills that we are doing in class.  Here are couple of activities to try at home with our benchmark skill:  Measure the area of the rooms in your home to determine which rooms are the smallest and largest.  Use grid paper to make rectangles with the same area.  Find the perimeter of the outside of your house or a fence.

 

Homework this week:  Back of this letter, study X facts, journal

Monday:  Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).   square with side length 1 unit, called "a unit square," is said to have "one square unit" of area, and can be used to measure area.  Finding perimeter and area with tiles and arrays  Students will use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths a and b + c is the sum of a × b and a × c. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.

Tuesday:  Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.  Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.

Wednesday:  Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.

Thursday:  Benchmark on Perimeter and Area

Friday:  Multiplication Drills  Study the facts that you have not mastered yet this 9 weeks.  Check your grades below.  New skill:  Multiply by multiples of ten For example:  60 x 9, 30 X 8. This will be our next benchmark test.

Trading Stickers, Combining Coins Family Letter

About the Mathematics in This Unit

Dear Families,

Our class is starting a new mathematics unit about addition and subtraction called Trading Stickers, Combining Coins. During this unit, students solve addition problems with 2-digit and small 3-digit numbers, solve subtraction problems involving 2-digit numbers, and find combinations of numbers that add to 100. They work on understanding the place value structure of 3-digit numbers as they solve problems.

Related Activities to Try at Home

Dear Families,

The activities below are related to the mathematics in the addition

and subtraction unit Trading Stickers, Combining Coins. You can use

the activities to enrich your child’s mathematical learning experience.

Practicing Addition Combinations In class, students will be

using a set of Addition Cards to review and practice the addition

combinations to 10 _ 10, often known as addition “facts.” Your child

is likely to have learned many or all of these combinations in Grade 2,

but he or she will benefit from reviewing them all. Your child can sort

these cards into “the ones I know” and “the ones I’m working on.”

The goal is for students to know and use these combinations fluently.

Sometimes for homework, students will choose a few combinations

that they are working on and think about strategies that will help

them remember those combinations. For example, one strategy a child

might use is this: What is 6 _ 7? I know 6 _ 6 _ 12, and 6 _ 7 is

one more than that, so it’s 13. You can help with these combinations

by listening to your child’s strategies or sharing ones that you use.

Addition Strategies in Context Help your child practice addition

strategies while you are shopping. When you buy an item, ask your

child to estimate how much two of them would cost. For example,

If a box of raisins costs $1.39, will two boxes cost less than $2.00?

More than $5.00? What is the exact amount?

How Did You Solve That? Ask your child to describe homework

problems and tell you about the strategy used to solve them.

Communication is an important part of mathematics, and students

need to describe their strategies through talking, writing, drawing, or using concrete objects. You can be an important audience.

Math and Literature Here are some suggestions of children’s books that contain relevant mathematical ideas about addition and subtraction. Look for these

books at your local library. Sayre, April. One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab:

A Counting by Feet Book. Viorst, Judith. Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich
