The student/child can make solve problems that involve equal shares.
No text needed, however, this lesson goes along with the Go Math! Planning Guide ~ Getting Ready for Grade 3, Lesson 12.
Everything is provided for you:
Exit Slip (make the copies you need)
Student Work Space Sheet
Student Evidence of Learning/Verification
To check for student understanding
Check the student’s or child’s performance on the exit slip.
1. Teach or show your child how to make solve problems that involve equal shares.
e.g., There are 15 baseballs in 5 duffel bags. How many baseballs are in each bag?
2. Have your student or child complete the exit slip.
3. Assess how well he or she did using the answer key (provided).
Common Error: If there are any missed questions your student or child may not understand how to solve world problems involving equal shares. Show him or her to draw a picture to help them solve these types of problems.
Reteach: Have him or her correct any missed questions and use the student work space sheet to explain how they came up with the correct answer.
