Number Corner February: The arrival of the tenth decade, the 100th day of school, makes February an exciting month. Both the Days in School and Number Line workouts pay tribute to this special number. The Computational Fluency workout brings focus on multiple addends, and students use a variety of efficient strategies to compose groups flexibly. In addition to the numeration work, students name and describe pairs of two-dimensional shapes shown on the Calendar Grid markers and determine whether or not the shapes in each pair are congruent.

Bridges Unit 4 Module 1: Module 1 works to familiarize students with the number line as a mathematical model and an operational tool. Students use a life-sized number line to locate and identify numbers, and to begin to model addition and subtraction problems. Later they play a game in which they help a frog jump along a number line. In addition to helping students develop confidence with the number line as a computational tool, the activity helps deepen their understanding about the relationship between addition and subtraction.


We will be focusing on the NGSS Science Standard: Structure, Function, and Information Processing

Students will:

1-LS1-1. Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs

1-LS1-2. Read texts and use media to determine patterns in behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive.

1-LS3-1. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents.
