Students are beginning Unit 2 which involves Place Value and Statistics.
We are also doing NECAP preparation for our October testing.
All students should be studying their math facts every night!!
Students should be preparing for their Math Masters test. Students will have 6 minutes to complete their 100 problems.
Grade Level Expectations
DominoTop-It: Spread dominoes face down on a flat surface. Each player chooses a domino and turns it over. Add (or multiply) each half of the domino. The player with the highest total wins both dominoes. In the case of a tie, each player picks a second domino. The highest total wins the 4 dominoes. Continue playing until all the dominoes have been used. The player with the most dominoes wins.
Dice Top-It: This game is similar to Dominoes Top-It. Each player rolls two dice at the same time. Each player adds (or multiplies) the sums of their dice. The player with the higher sum wins a point. The first player to get ten points wins.
Addition Top-It: The game is played with a deck of cards, 4 cards for each number 1-10. Shuffle the deck and place it face down. At each turn, players turn over two cards and call out the sum. The player with the highest sum wins all the cards. In the case of a tie, players pick two more cards. The player with the highest sum takes all the cards from both plays. Play continues until there are fewer than four cards left. The player with the most cards wins. (Try multiplying the numbers on the cards for a challenge!)
Coin Exchange: (two players) Put 20 pennies, 10 nickels, 10 dimes, and 2 quarters in a pile. This is the bank. At each turn, a player rolls two dice and collects from the bank the amount shown on the dice. Whenever possible, players should exchange 5 of their pennies for a nickel in the bank, 2 nickels or 1 nickel and five pennies for a dime, and a combination of nickels and dimes for a quarter. The game ends when there are no more quarters in the bank. The player who has more money wins. You can extend the game by playing with a larger bank and three dice as children become more familiar with coins and exchanges.
