I have gotten numerous emails asking me to show you exactly what the STUDENTS are doing on the worksheet each day. You know what I fill in (as I showed you here), you know what we do when we go over it (you can see the video here), you know the boards, and the routine...but what EXACTLY are the students doing???
Well, here are some pictures that I hope will explain it and give you a better idea of just what the students are doing during the work period. I actually wrote these but this is what I expect (and receive) from the students. What the students will produce is in red (except for half of the first sheet, I forgot to change pens ;)
This is the 5th grade version. Obviously the 4th and 3rd grade versions do change slightly but the basics of what they are doing is the same.
Here are the three sheets I use throughout the year.
|The first six weeks (or so) of school|
|The second six weeks or so|
|The remainder of the year (this is the more difficult of the three sheets)|
Of course, each day it changes slightly because the date changes. I also make the big number bigger or smaller, do a different equation or geometry skill, but the basics are the same each day.
This is the geometry portion (for the first two sheets) and the Equation of the Day (for the last sheet).
Here are some close ups. Click on them for a clearer, bigger view.
You can find all of these close up pictures on a doc that I uploaded for you. That way, you can explore them a bit more.
As always, you can find all of my previous Calendar Math posts here.
OK...what questions do you have for me??
