We will continue next week with Unit 4. Students have done a nice job analyzing story elements- characters, setting, problem, and solution. Recognizing these elements help enhance readers understanding of the story. It will also help them to create their own summaries.

Unit 4- Leapfrogs on the Number Line

On Monday, we will begin Unit 4. Unit 4 revolves around the number line, an essential mathematical model. Throughout, closed and open number lines are used both as models of our number system, as well as models for beginning operations with addition and subtraction. Students locate numbers on a number line, use their reasoning skills and number sense to determine unknown values that correspond to empty boxes, and explore addition and subtraction. As the unit unfolds, the range of numbers represented grows from 0–20 to 0–120. Students become comfortable skip-jumping along open number lines in multiples of 5 and 10, forward and backward, from numbers that are both on and off the decade. In the concluding module, students measure penguins and then compare and order those measurements, write inequality statements, and find differences between the two numbers.
