Tired of feeling like your math text book is moving so quickly and cramming too many standards into one chapter or lesson. So was I...so I decided to do it differently! I decided to teach and assess by standard.
This unit of study focuses on Common Core Math Standard 4.NBT.4. Students build their understanding as they complete the Do It! Use It! Teach It! pages. Each works up to students building higher levels of understanding where they are asked to model, explain, prove or disprove.
The lessons follow the LearnZillion Video sequencing for standard 4.NBT.4.
A student tracking page is included. Students receive 10 points per page that is completed and is all correct. Students receive 5 points per page if they need to correct and return it. When the student returns the corrected work they will receive the additional 5 points.
It is important for students to recognize and correct their mistakes. When handing back the pages to students who need to correct it a one on one conference time is opened up.
If there are several students missing the same thing I will often hold them to the side and then call them all together at one time for a small group lesson.
Doing this I have never known my students level of understandings better. I hope you enjoy it!
I also have this same design for 4.NBT.1, 4.NBT. 2 and 4.NBT.3.
**For My Assessments I use 4th Grade Standards Based Assessments found here: They are GREAT!
I also use the data tracking pack that she created! Highly recommend!
