We created this resource to help prepare our students for solving constructed and extended response math problems! Students must be able to write about their math thinking, and this pack takes students and teachers through a weekly process to solve these performance tasks. These constructed and extended response problems are modeled after the new state and national assessments.

The lessons included are based on the 4th Grade Place Value Common Core Standards: 4.NBT.A1 4.NBT.A2 4.NBT.A3

We designed a plan for teaching our kids how to think like mathematicians and solve these performance tasks. We've set up 5 weeks of instruction- you don’t have to use all 5 weeks- just pick what works for you!

For each week, you are given a lesson plan of daily “Math Performance Prompts”, a “Weekly Work” activity, and a culminating “Performance Task.” Students prepare Monday through Thursday for the Performance Task on Friday.

The “Math Performance Prompts” are designed to be a 5-10 minute quick lesson to prepare your students for Friday’s “Performance Task.” We use it as part of our Calendar time at the beginning of Math class.

The “Weekly Work” activities can be used as daily work, homework, or even part of a center rotation. These activities give students practice with the skills needed to solve the “Performance Task” on Friday.

Finally, on Friday, you can complete the “Performance Task” with students or use it as an independent assessment. There is a detailed rubric and scoring guide included for each task.

All answer keys are included.

Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
