In this session students draw on their knowledge of comparison symbols to compare fractions. They reason about the fraction size to explore how to compare two fractions with the same denominator.

We are continuing these lessons from Friday.

In this session students demonstrate their understanding of comparing two fractions with the same numerator or same denominator as they talk through how to solve problems. They will create their own comparison word problems based on given information and use a model or number line to solve one of the problems.

Today we will use area models and number lines to compare two fractions that have either the same denominator or the same numerator and then compare the models.

In this session students draw on their knowledge of area models and equivalent fractions. They compare models to explore how to rename a fraction using a different denominator. They will look ahead to think about how to find equivalent fractions using the same area model or number line.

Our assessment today will be an exit ticket.

Ch. 1 Test

Today students will complete their first test. This test will be completed online on Edulastic and graded in class. We will also do a quick check in/conference with each student as they finish and allow corrections ONCE while in class for partial credit.

Today we will be completing our first test review packet. This is basically a practice test, however, we are going to go over it together. This will ensure everyone knows the correct way to respond to questions, and how to show their work. Later on this will be sent as homework, but for the first couple of chapters we want to work with them to make sure everyone is on the same page!

We will also have some small group activities to practice skills based on how they do on the practice test.

Their first chapter assessment will be tomorrow!

We will also continue learning how to use addition to check our work as we are learning about the relationship between addition and subtraction.

You can help your child practice at home on IXL D.1, D.8

They can also still work on addition and subtraction strategies if they are on Prodigy.

Your child will be bringing home a math study guide for homework. This will be due on Friday, and it is important that they bring it back on Friday as we will be using it to review for our test. They will bring the completed packet home this weekend to practice for their test.

We will continue learning how to estimate differences. We will be using the same sentence stem from last week to help with rounding: ____ is between ____ and ____ but it is closer to ____.

We will also be discussing the differences between estimating and finding an exact amount.

We will be taking a quick quiz to see where we are with rounding and estimating sums today.

We will then do a quick review of any skills where we had struggle, before we begin estimating differences. We will be using the same sentence stem from last week to help with rounding: ____ is between ____ and ____ but it is closer to ____.

We will also be discussing the differences between estimating and finding an exact amount.

Today we will be using what we have learned about place value to add numbers with and without regrouping.

Today we will be putting to work all of our new strategies for rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. Our goal is to be able to do so correctly, but to also be able to EXPLAIN our reasoning to JUSTIFY our answers.

Some tips/tricks are attached below, as well as some extra practice if you want to work on it at home.

Also, remind students to use our sentence stem:

____ is between ____ and _____ but it is closer to _____.

Reminders: Homework for this week is due today. We will be going over it in class, so please make sure students have returned it!

Today we will begin rounding two and three digit numbers to the nearest 100. We will be using the following sentence stem:

_____ is between ____ and ____ but it is closer to ___.

For example, 263 is between 200 and 300 but it is closer to 300.

This would be a quick and easy way to practice while in the car or eating dinner! See if they are able to mentally name the 10's a number is between and then determine what it is closest to!

Today we will begin rounding two and three digit numbers to the nearest 10. We will be using the following sentence stem:
