# Math and Science @ Wells!

### January 2017

## Take a look to see what's happening in math and science classrooms throughout the school.

## Math in the halls Have your students figure out how many fingers there are. How many hands? Thumbs? What fraction are red? Many possibilities here! | ## How many years? This banner is in the gym. A student noticed that 2006 was 11 years ago, so what should the banner say now? When it's 2025? When's the 100 year celebration? | ## Angles! Students found all right angles and taped around them. Try this yourself! They are everywhere. |

## How many years?

This banner is in the gym. A student noticed that 2006 was 11 years ago, so what should the banner say now? When it's 2025? When's the 100 year celebration?

## Math in Special Education classrooms

Check it out!

## What time is it? A great way to support telling time. | ## Spotted in Special Ed! The problem is 40 divided by 5. Can you see the work involved here? | ## Eureka with support Breaking down the task at hand. |

## Third Grade

## What did you do well today? A 3rd grader pointed this Eureka page out to me when I asked. | ## What is it, anyways? Have their thoughts changed since the start of the year? | ## Talk with your partner! Anytime you can encourage them to practice discourse, it matters! |

## Fourth Grade

## Anchor chart Great reference for students no matter what they are learning in math. | ## Eureka! Students and teachers work on Eureka math, every day. | ## Many ways to multiply Great visual representation for students and teachers, too. |

## Fifth Grade

## Sound Waves Students had to match the sound they heard with the correct sound wave. | ## Fraction action Visuals help fractions to be seen as numbers. | ## Math vocabulary "Math Words to Know and Use" |

## There's a lot of great math and science happening at WRS every day.

Grade 3 is on Unit 3, Multiplication and Division with Units of 0, 1, 6-9, and 10. Grade 4 is on their second half of unit 3, Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division, and Grade 5 is in their third unit, Addition and Subtraction of Fractions.

I'd like to highlight __students and teachers__ in February's Math and Science @Wells newsletter.

Please let me know if there's something specific you'd like to showcase in future newsletters! Thanks, Kristin
