Product Description

Looking for the perfect tool to build or review fourth grade math understanding? Discovered your fourth graders aren’t retaining the skills introduced during your math units? Searching for a low-prep, engaging routine that boosts fourth grade math skills? This reusable Number of the Day Binder is a perfect way to address your needs.

**PEDAGOGY**

One of the greatest challenges we face as teachers is finding enough time for all the instruction we need to fit in. Often times, we feel there is a need to hurry on to the next topic once we see students have reached their learning goal. Unfortunately this (seemingly relentless) need to move on robs many learners of their (infinitely more important) need to go back and review concepts. We learn quickly that in order to make room for the spiral review students need, we need to hit the ground running each morning when they arrive in the classroom.

This Number of the Day Binder will help you integrate spiral review on a consistent basis. Using these binder pages will strengthen your students’ math understanding through daily math modeling and reasoning routines. All activities in this Number of the Day Binder are designed to use with seven digit numbers.

These reusable activities are perfect for:

★ Daily bell ringer, bellwork, seat work

★ Daily worm up during math workshop

★ A center during your guided math rotations

★ Routine formative assessment of place value understanding

★ Differentiated place value practice in upper grades

**SETTING UP TO SAVE TIME**

The pages of this binder are designed to be printed once, inserted into page protectors and stored in ½ binders for daily use throughout the school year. Setting up one binder for each student in this way makes it easy for your students to use white board markers to complete their activities, and erase for a fresh start with a new number the next day.

**DAILY ROUTINE**

The routine I’ve used with my students is as follows. This routine takes about 15 minutes in my classroom, and is completed simultaneously with attendance, homework collection, and any necessary morning check-ins. Please keep in mind, this resource makes it easy for your revise the recommended routine to fit the unique needs of your classroom.

★ Teacher selects a new number between 0-100 each day

★ Students complete multiple pages in their binder (3-4 pages is recommended)

★ After students complete their assigned pages, they tap their head silently to signal they are done

★ Teacher stops by to check binder pages

★ Teacher signals student to tuck their binder away after work has been checked

★ Teacher notes mentally, or in writing which students need follow up instruction related to their place value practice

★ Teacher follows up on misconceptions and mistakes as needed during guided math

** BOOSTING RIGOR**

When students can count on a consistent format for their spiral review, they can focus more brain power on strengthening their math understanding. The activities in this binder reinforce the variety of math modeling approaches, which transfer to solving more complex math problems in fourth & fifth grade, and beyond. The format of each page requires students to manipulate and model today’s number in a variety of ways, further deepening place value understanding.

**SCAFFOLDING AND DIFFERENTIATION MADE EASY**

Introducing each page through an interactive modeling lesson is recommended. First, have students watch and listen as you work through the page with a sample number. Then, display a new number and work through the page together, with your binder on display, and theirs on their lap or desk. The following day, you can decide if another guided practice session is needed, or if you will walk the room as students work through their page independently. The consistent format of these reusable pages quickly builds students’ confidence with tackling a new number each day.

With several pages to pick from, students who demonstrate mastery of concepts can move on to more advanced/new pages as needed. You can also reduce or increase the number of pages a student completes each day without the need for additional prep work.

**WHAT'S INCLUDED:**

The fourth grade skills included in this binder are place value, comparison, addition with regrouping, subtraction with regrouping, multiplication comparison statements, multiplication fact families, prime numbers, composite numbers, factor pairs, and multi-digit multiplication (using standard algorithm, rectangular area models, and the distributive property). For a detailed look at every page of the binder, click the preview button above.

★ **Place Value Forms:** on page 1 students record today’s number (a random seven-digit number created daily by the teacher) in the place value chart, and place commas in accurate positions. Students then record today’s number in different place value formats including standard form, expanded form, and word form. Finally, students represent a three digit number in three additional variations of expanded form.

★ **Comparing Numbers to the Millions:** on page 2 students compare today’s number to a new number created by rearranging the digits, then circle the digit that helped them determine which number is greater. Students round today’s number three different ways, and create number line models to justify their rounding reasoning.

★ **Multi-Digit Addition with Regrouping:** on page 3 students rearrange the digits of today’s number to make a new number with the greatest possible value. Students then solve a multi-digit addition with regrouping equation to find the sum of the two numbers. Finally, students use the inverse operation (subtraction) to check the accuracy of their multi-digit addition equation.

★ **Multi-Digit Subtraction with Regrouping:** On page 4 students rearrange the digits of today’s number to make a new number with the least possible value. Students then solve a multi-digit subtraction with regrouping equation to find the difference of the two numbers. Finally, students use the inverse operation (addition) to check the accuracy of their multi-digit subtraction equation.

★ **Multiplication Comparison Statements:** On page 5 students use digits from today’s number along with the Commutative Property of Multiplication to create a simple multiplication equation. Students write the multiplication sentence as a comparison statement, then write the fact family and create an array model for the simple multiplication sentence.

★ **Prime Numbers, Composite Numbers & Factor Pairs:** On page 6 students use provided guidelines to create a variety of prime and composite numbers using the digits of today’s number, then list the factor pairs for each number created.

★ **Prime Numbers, Composite Numbers & Multiples:** On pages 7 & 8 students select one of the two-digit composite numbers created on page 6, and list the factors for that number in order from least to greatest in the factor chart. Students complete the factor chart by listing the multiples for each factor leading up to the selected two-digit number. Finally, students identify prime and composite numbers within the factor chart. Two factor chart pages are provided for numbers with more than 6 factors.

★ **Single-Digit by Multi-Digit Multiplication Using Standard Algorithm:** On page 9 students use digits from today’s number to create a four-digit by one-digit multiplication equation, and solve the equation using standard algorithm. Students identify the factors and product for the multiplication equation, and represent the product in two ways using expanded form.

★ **Multiplication Using Rectangular Area Models and the Distributive Property:** On page 10 students use a rectangular area model to check the accuracy of their solution from page 9. Then, students use digits from today’s number to create a three-digit by one-digit multiplication equation, and solve the equation using the Distributive Property of Multiplication.

★ **Multiplication Using Standard Algorithm and Rectangular Area Models:** On page 11 students use digits from today’s number to create a two-digit by two-digit multiplication equation, and solve the equation using standard algorithm. Then, students use a rectangular area model to check the accuracy of their solution.

★ **Multiplication Using the Distributive Property and Rectangular Area Models:** On page 12 students use digits from today’s number to create a two-digit by two-digit multiplication equation, and solve the equation using the Distributive Property of Multiplication. Then students use a rectangular area model to check the accuracy of their solution.
