Product Description

This product is a complete 90-minute lesson plan with resources to teach students to understand money as decimals through a high-engagement and interactive format. I created this as a series of lessons in a labor of love for my own classroom as I sought to incorporate best practices in teaching and rose to meet the increased expectations for rigor in math classrooms while still feeding my students' need for play.

The lesson and activity in this unit can each be used independently or woven together with your mandated curriculum guide or into a guided math block. You can pick and choose the parts that work best for you. In my classroom, I have about 90 minutes for math each day. I start with the whole group mini-lesson that ends with the cooperative learning activity, then break my classroom up into 3 groups.

•Whole group mini-lesson 10-15 minutes

•Cooperative learning follow-up activity 10-15 minutes

•Group time organization-assign students to groups and front load the directions for small group tasks

•Group work-60 minutes broken up into 20 min chunks

• Teacher table-we work on the paper assignment, reteaching or extending as needed. (BONUS-I grade the papers as we go!)
• Notebooking- students add the INB pieces to their notebooks and work the math included
• Game of the day

This single-day lesson is part of a larger unit: Everything But the Dice- 4th Grade Decimals Unit. IF YOU ALREADY OWN THIS UNIT, PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THIS DUPLICATE. This product is intended for teachers looking for single lesson options.
