I created these math meetings as a way of scaffolding information throughout the year. Like most math series' one topic is focused on a time. I did not like the fact that on the assessments or during class activities the students "knew" what operation they had to use since that was the topic focused on in the chapter at that time. When it came to testing, they were thrown off because they had to focus on the key words to identify which operation to use to solve the problems. This has worked wonders for me! I have each slide building upon one another. It is a fabulous way to keep everything "fresh" in the students minds. I also have each question labeled with the Common Core Standard it pertains to. It is a great way to have whole group instruction in which the students can have ownership. I take about 15 minutes each day or every other day to have a "Math Meeting" with the students. They are vibrant, include arrays and other illustrations, and are quite engaging! Below I listed a few details about the slides.
There are 58 slides total.
Each time there is a new math vocabulary page, it means that I have started a new chapter so the concepts will become even more challenging.
CC Standards are labeled next to each question.
There is a challenge question included on each slide for the early finishers.
The 58 slides cover half of the years' concepts, so this set lasts me until Christmas break. (Don't worry, I will have the second half up and running by then!)
These slides run off of Microsoft Power Point and are editable.
I showcase the slides on the Smart Board and the students work together, work independently, or we work as a whole group focusing on the topics.
The topics focused on include but are not limited to..
place value through thousands, comparing numbers, ordering numbers, rounding to the nearest 10, rounding to the nearest 100, addition properties, patterns in the addition table, adding mentally, estimating sums, using models to add, 3-digit addition, 4-digit addition, subtracting mentally, estimating differences, subtracting with regrouping, subtracting 3-digit numbers, subtracting 4-digit numbers, subtracting across zeros, hands-on model multiplication, multiplying using repeated addition, arrays, model division, division as equal sharing, relating division and subtraction, relating multiplication and division, inverse operations, patterns in the multiplication table, multiplying and dividing by 2, multiplying and dividing by 5, multiplying and dividing by 10, and multiples of 10.
