LG: I can use addition strategies to solve a problem.
Today you are going to going to collect some data, and then use an addition strategy to add together all your data and find the sum. You task is to count how many individual shoes you have in your house (not pairs).
Draw the table up in your book, filling out each of your family members. In my house, I would list my mum, dad, brother and sister.
Gather your data by counting every single shoe (not pair of shoes). Record your data in a tally.
Then Once you have gathered all your data, add up the number of shoes you have in your house. Remember to use one of the strategies you have learnt this week to add all the shoes.
Write the number sentence and use a diagram to show your working out.
After you finished the lesson:
Once you have finished, go to Hotmaths to complete the task.
It was so great to chat to you all about your book club books yesterday. It seems everyone is enjoying them so far.
Today in our WebEx meeting we are going to do some maths together, so make sure you have your maths book ready for our meeting.
Since we’ve been remote learning, I feel like I’ve been sitting down a lot more than usual. If you feel like me too, you might like to do a quick workout in-between your learning to get your heart rate pumping, just like we would do at school!
You can try this one! Remember you can also go on to Go Noodle at home as well.
Record some of the things you liked about the text, and some things you didn’t like. There are some examples for you.
Think about things like:
Turn your notes into a paragraph. Example:
“I thought the text contained some interesting word choices. I thought the words powerful, disgusted and horrified really showed how strongly the author felt about the issue. Although, I do think they could have organised it better. There were no proper paragraphs which made it hard to follow.”
It is time for independent reading. Choose something at home to read for 15 minutes (set a timer if you need to keep track of time).
A homophone is a word that is pronounced the same way but is spelled and means something different.
An example of a homophone is to/too/two or they’re/there/their.
Make a list of some homophones you already know.
Then rewrite the sentences below in your book. Make sure you choose the right homophone!
1) My brother likes to/too/two play football.
2) We bought meat/meet at the market.
3) Sunday is the first day of the weak/week.
4) (There, their, they’re) going to the beach on the weekend.
5) I sea/see lots of fish at the aquarium.
If you want a challenge, open the document, and read the paragraph. You can either rewrite the paragraph in your writing book with the correct homophones, or highlight the the correct homophone and upload it to Class Notebook. The Boy and the Horrible Humongous Monsters
THEN… Find some time today to do 10 minutes of touch typing.
If you do have a school laptop, you do have a program called Rapid Typing 5 in the ICT and Programming folder on your computer. There is another one called Tux Typing in the Literacy folder as well. Or you could also go to https://www.typingclub.com/ and follow the prompts.
LG: I can name and use strategies to solve addition problems.
Today you are going to complete some different activities to practise your addition strategy!
First… Practise your strategy to find the answers to these number sentences.
Next… Solve this worded problem.
Then… Create your own worded story problem. Think about the examples you have worked on and use similar numbers (e.g. 2- 3- or 4- digit). Write your problem in words/sentences. We can share these in our group next week and see if we can solve each other’s problems!
To find your problems for today’s lesson, click on the link for your group colour:
I’m so impressed how well everyone is doing with persuasive writing. It’s been so great to hear your opinions and reasons!
Remember to click on your group colour in the maths post today to get your days tasks. Watch the video to remind yourself about how to use your strategy correctly.
I am wondering what you guys have been doing to keep active every day? So far I have been enjoying walks (especially taking Ollie for walks), running and kicking the football in the park. Leave a comment on this post to let me know how you have been keeping active each day!
See you in the groups today for Book Club!
PS. Here is a video of Ollie going for his very first walk!
