Jennifer Lundberg CI389—Fields April 16, 2016 Class Notes Math Literacy Projects Sir Cumference and the First Round Table  Character tries to build a table for King Arthur that would make it so there was room for everyone and there would be no arguing.  Table starts off as long rectangle and goes through many changes until at the end it becomes a circle shaped table.  Books meets geometry CCSS for many grade levels.  This books helps teach geometry vocabulary and problem solving skills.  For grades 1-7. 1-3 grade, don’t read WHOLE book, just key parts.  Good for trying out activities while interacting with the book or using the book as inspiration to try other activities and problem solving through geometry concepts. Spaghetti and Meatballs for All!  The main character creates a seating chart that will fit all the guests. As guest arrive they keep combining tables which takes away seating. This happens and then it goes in reverse! Finally characters realize the main character was right all along.  Students can use small manipulatives, such as tiles, to physically test it out.  The back of the book shows the different seating charts.  This book is good for teaching area and perimeter.  Students can try this activity in class by putting their desks together and seeing how places are lost. The Doorbell Rang  The characters must keep equally dividing up cookies to share with one another as more and more children ring the doorbell and come into the house.  This book teaching division, fractions, and sharing concepts.  Students can engage with the text by demonstrating sharing of an item in class.  Ties into social emotional learning.  For grades 1-4. The Measure of a Giant  Ties into Jack and the Beanstalk story line. Jack and the giant are friends and through measurements, they try and make the things they enjoy doing in equal proportion to one another.  Reading for grades 3-5 . Math content for grade 6.  Teaches ratio, perspective, and distance.  Activity can be done in class where the students try and make math equations to make other items in proportional size to what a giant would need. STEM Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics  Teachers should incorporate STEM into class even if it is not yet part of the school’s curriculum.  A great way to engage students is through STEM challenges.  An idea of STEM in the classroom is having “Hour to Code” which is an hour of the day devoted to students practice coding activities.  Another way to put STEM in the classroom, especially elementary age classrooms, is having a “Maker’s Space” which is a spot in the classroom that has random items and students get time to just create things with the given items. STEM challenge activity in class: Marshmallow Challenge  We will be timed 18 minutes to use given items to build a free standing structure.  Winning team has successful standing structure with marshmallow highest off the table.  Materials: 1 yard of tape, 20 pasta strings, 1 marshmallow.
