What’s For Lunch?
I use this as a center for students to use during reading and also math workshop.
Students can complete the activities during independent working time while I am taking small groups or teaching mini lessons to other students.
Print out one set of all papers. Paste the menu to the file folder and laminate it, cutting slits inside for the pockets. I then laminate the question pages. Students may record all of their answers in their reading or math journals.
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
