What do you think the book might be about?

Joe's Carrots

Read and discuss:

On pages 2-3 What do you see? (Double 6, the number 12 on the sign)

On pages 4-5

How many carrots do you see? (9)

What are the white spaces showing us? (3 Missing carrots)

What equations could you write to match the carrots on this page?

(12-3=__ or 9+__=12)

OR

Use up to 15 pieces of dried beans, pasta or something similar to create your own subtraction story. See the example:

15 carrots were growing in the garden. A rabbit came and ate 3 carrots. How many carrots are left in the garden?

15-3=12 or 12+3=15

Draw a picture and write a subtraction and an addition equation to match your story.

 

Using Joe's Teaching Tool (found in Monday’s lesson) to draw a subtraction story and write a matching equation.

Draw or drag over 5 white spaces, then cover each white space with a dried bean or carrot shape.

How many carrots do you see?

Take one away.

How many do you see now?

Our total number was five, one is no longer there, so we have four left.

What equation could we write to match your picture? (5-1=4)

Could you write an addition equation to solve the problem? (4+1=5)

Now try using 7 carrots and take away two. Can you write a subtraction and addition equation to match your picture?

What other numbers could you use? Show your work!

OR

How Many Am I Hiding? Lay out 10 small objects like buttons or pennies and ask your child to count them. Then, while your child covers their eyes, hide some of the objects. Show your child the objects that are not hidden and ask, “How many am I hiding?” Encourage your child to explain their thinking and write an equation to show their thinking. After playing a few rounds, you can change the total number (from 6 to 12 total) and start again. You can also play this game online:

April 15th Update!
Hello Dumfries Families! I now have another way for us to stay in contact. I have a Google Voice phone number you can reach me at. You can call or text me at 517-406-4267. I can be reached at this number Mon-Fri from 9:45 am-10:15 am. You can also always contact me via email at breedem@pwcs.edu or by Twitter @mcubb. I would love to hear how the choice boards are going! 



I hope everyone had a restful Spring Break. This week we will begin our Learning Choice Boards!

 

I have posted below the very first choice board for the week of April 13th here on my class page. :) I will also be emailing and posting it under the "files and documents" page of my class website for all parents. The choice board has optional learning activities for reading, writing, math, science/social studies. It also has links to the Encore and Resource teachers’ web pages which have suggested activities for your child.

These activities will be review of content that has already been taught this year in the classroom. We have provided you with enough options for your child to do something in every subject area Monday through Friday. However, this is meant to be a resource for families and is not meant to be overwhelming. 

As it is an optional choice board, you can choose to do whatever suits the needs of your family. There are different types of activities to include online learning and activities that you can do without needing the internet. While the board will change each week, the "every day" section will remain as we believe reading is the most important learning opportunity for your child. During this time, please have your child read independently for at least 20 minutes. The work from the choice board activities will not be collected or graded, but please feel free to share any pictures of your child enjoying their learning!

I’m looking forward to seeing your child having fun with this! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support!
