  • Just Say “NO” to Worksheets Presented by Michelle Flaming [email_address] ESSDACK
  • Opening Activity
    • Probability lies between 0 and 1
      • Please line up according to where your event falls on the continuum.
    • No Way Jose
      • Please line up according to where your event would fall in the story setting - The Titanic
  • Opening Activity
    • Draw a line segment on a 1/2 sheet piece of paper.
    • Measure your line to the nearest inch.
    • Write your measurement next to the line.
    • Line up in order from minimum to maximum.
  • Why Use Manipulatives?
    • Helps children to understand mathematics.
    • Provide concrete ways for students to bring meaning to abstract mathematical ideas.
    • Helps children to learn new concepts and relate new concepts to what they have already learned.
    • Assist children with solving problems
  • Important to focus on …
    • Thinking and reasoning must be the TOP priorities when students are engaged in learning manipulative materials.
    • Scaffolding from concrete to pictorial to abstract.
    • Connections of multiple representations.
      • Pictures - Written Examples
      • Spoken Language - Written symbols
  • Cheap Manipulatives
    • My Function Book
      • Proportional Functions
        • Foam Creatures from Oriental Trading
  • Where’s the Mathematics?
    • Make a list of mathematical concepts and processes used during this activity?
  • Two- Day Format
    • Focused Activity with the Manipulative
    • Watching Lessons of Student’s Work with Manipulative
    • Videotape Discussion
    • More Lessons
    • Day 1 Focus:
      • Cheap Manipulatives
      • Foam Creatures, Toothpicks, Cards, Dice etc.
      • Color Tiles
      • Geoboards
    • Day 2 Focus:
      • Base-Ten Blocks
      • Pattern Blocks
      • Unifix Cubes
  • Color Tiles
    • Presenting Color Tiles
    • Viewing the Videotape
      • Focus on the teachers’ thinking and reasoning.
    • More Explorations using color tiles.
    • Discussion of the Videotape
  • Color Tiles Uses:
    • Counting
    • Estimating
    • Measuring
    • Investigating multiplication patterns.
    • Solving problems with fractions
    • Exploring geometric shapes
    • Carrying out probability experiments
  • Viewing the Videotape
    • What did you observe about the teaching? Refer to specific examples from the videotape.
    • What did you observe in the children’s responses? Refer to specific examples from the videotape.
    • What questions do you have as a result of watching the videotape.
  • Videotape discussion
    • In the first activity, in which the 4th graders build rectangles for different number of tiles, the students were given a chance to explore with materials, then they were given a worksheet so that they could reflect on what they had done, and finally the class was brought together at the end for a class discussion. Discuss the benefits of each aspects of the lesson.
  • Videotape discussion
    • You saw Hal and Myisha and then Russ and Shane working together on the Fraction Rectangles activity. Explain why it is beneficial for students to work together.
  • Videotape discussion
    • Explain how finding areas with Color Tiles can help develop the second graders’ understanding of place value.
  • Videotape discussion
    • The 4th graders on the videotape were playing Four in a Row for the first time. What would you have the children do now?
  • The Toothpick Problem
    • Using four toothpicks, determine all the different ways you can put the four together.
      • All right angles (if there is an angle)
      • Touch end to end
  • Where’s the Mathematics?
    • Make a list of mathematical concepts and processes used during this activity?
  • Making Useable Clocks X Marks The Spot
  •
