This unit is covering addition and subtraction and we will be completing a project at the end of this unit to asses their knowledge and understanding. Your child will learn to add and subtract numbers from 1-20. This unit will last all week and the final project is due on Friday. Each group will be presenting their project to the class and I welcome any parents to come and watch these presentations. This slide share presentation that I created will enable you to see what is expected of your child this week and allow you to be part of their learning during this unit.
3. 3. + Objectives:  Your child will learn how to add and subtract numbers from 1-20.  Your child will collaboratively add and subtract numbers with their group using a food item that they bring to class.  Your child will increase their communication and collaboration skills as they work in these groups.  Your child will use technology for their final project. They will be creating a digital poster on Gloster to present to the class on Friday March 21st.  Students will demonstrate self direction, collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking, communication, and their technology skills during this unit.

5. 5. + What is your child required to do for this unit?  Your child will be taught addition and subtraction on Monday, March 17th during math time.  Your child will be required to bring to class 20 small food items for our hands on learning activity. (such as pretzels, marshmallows, skittles, cheese itz, crackers, m&ms, etc.)  In class they will do an activity with these items and practice their addition and subtraction with their group.  They will they complete a digital poster on Gloster with their group.  This will be due Friday March 21st and each group will present their poster to the class.
6. 6. + How can parents get involved?  Parents participation in this unit is encouraged because it helps students know that their parents are part of their learning process  Help your child pick a small food item and count out 20 pieces together to bring to class. (Put it in a Ziploc baggy please)  Practice addition and subtraction problems at home using flashcards.  Show lots of interest in their new skill they learned and encourage them to practice as much as possible.  I encourage all parents to come to class on Friday, March 21st to watch the presentations they have created.
7. 7. + My Job as the Teacher:  As a teacher, I will access their prior knowledge by doing a brainstorm activity before the lesson.  I will be teaching the material to the class before they begin their activities and final presentations.  As they are working in groups, I will be circling the room and making sure each group is on task and answering any questions they may have.  Your child will be assessed by the digital poster that they are creating and presenting to the class.
8. 8. + PBL  PBL stands for Project based learning which I will be incorporating in the classroom during this unit.  This means that your child will be participating in groups to complete a final presentation of their knowledge from the unit.  This project helps them grasp the new material and be able to connect it to the outside world.  Students will learn many different skills such as communication and collaboration, technology, self direction, critical thinking and problem solving through project based learning.  This is a fun way to learn the material and assess the students knowledge and understanding of this new unit we are covering.
