I found many interesting activities this month for my Grade 5 students to enjoy. Check out Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Education Place if you haven’t already at: http://www.eduplace.com/monthlytheme/april/math.html for various mathematical activities at different elementary grade levels.
Particularly of interest to my class were:
Name That Term Grade 5: Math Lingo
Computational Game Grade 5: Rock Hopper
Geometry Game Grade 5: RoboPacker
Sequencing Challenge Grade 5: Find A Friend
Test Taking Strategies Grade 5
Yes we’re adding fractions,
Here is the steps,
For what you have to do:
You need the same denominator,
Then you change the numerator,
Use the same number to multiply,
Next add the numerators,
Keep the same denominator,
And cancel common factors,
So you can simplify.
