### What We've Been Up To In 5th Grade & Give Away @ The Resource(ful) Room!

Whew. I can't believe we've been in school for over a month now. Crazy! Getting the hang of things at school and in my graduate courses has zapped most of my time, and I haven't been creating things for my classroom as much as finding so many WONDERFUL resources in blogland. So I thought I'd let you see just what we've been doing. I co-teach in a 5th grade math class so far we have: Reviewed multiplication and division One "trick" to help students remember division is Dad, Mother, Sister…

### Debbie Diller's Chapter 8 Measurement

Measurement is a great opportunity for our students to participate in hands-on activities, explore their environment and learn a bunch of new math vocabulary! :) Debbie Diller tells us that it's overwhelming for children to remember all the measurement vocabulary we ask them to use, especially if we teach all the strands of measurement at once. She said, "This is a very important (and foundational) area of mathematics, so be sure to provide enough time to teach measurement concepts well."…

MEASUREMENT AND CONNECTION. Children recognize the attributes of weight and compare objects. Children are able to recognize the mathematics during play. I would use pictures of friends. I would do this activity after they played on seesaw... I may use a scale for an expanded activity.
