Math for the Five E-Learning Days:
You'll find that we'll be skipping some of the pages in your child's Math Journal. There will still be plenty of learning to do and we can go back and finish up those pages when the children return.
Monday, November 23rd: Lesson 5.2: Points and Line Segements
1. USING YOUR STRAIGHTEDGE follow the Codes on Math Journal page 113. A-->E-->D means you should line your straightedge up on points A and E and draw a line connecting them. Then line your straightedge up on points E and D and draw a line connecting them. Often there will be points you won't use so follow the Codes carefully.
2. Do Math Boxes 5.2 on page 114 of your Math Journal.
Tuesday, November 24th: Lesson 5.2: Parallel Line Segments
(Parallel lines are lines that don't intersect and would never intersect even if they continued on. This is a new concept to second graders.)
1. Read through the information and look at the illustrations on Math Journal, page 115. Lines on notebook paper are parallel lines.
(Quadrangles are any four-sided figure.)
2. Practice making parallel and non-parallel lines on pages 116 and 117 of the Math Journal. Be sure to use your straightedge.
3. Practice "What's My Rule?" and "Frames and Arrows" on page 118 of the Math Journal.
4. Math Boxes 5.3 on page 119 of the Math Journal.
(If you've already put in a lot of time on Math today, save the Math Boxes for another day.)
Wednesday, November 25th: Math Fact Worksheets
There are two math fact worksheets in the e-learning packet for you to do today. It shouldn't take too long so it might be a good day to make up work from Monday or Tuesday.
(Math Lesson 5.4 consists of Math Explorations with different manipulatives. We'll skip it and do this lesson when the children return from e-learning.)
Monday, November 30th: Lesson 5.5 Quadrangles
1. Review parallel, non-parallel, and quadrangle information on page 115 of the Math Journal.
(Talk with your child about right angles. A right angles "looks like an L" and "You can make a little square inside a right angle". Squares and rectangles have right angles. The other quadrangles don't.)
2. In the e-learning packet you'll find a piece of construction paper and two blackline masters that have triangles and rectanbles on them.
3. Follow the instructions on the first blackline master, page 139. You should cut out all the triangles and rectangles on both pages and make separate piles, one of triangles and one of rectangles. Then use your construction paper and glue to glue the shapes listed on blackline master, page 139 on to both sides of the construction paper. Make sure you use at least two pieces. Shapes to Make: square, rectangle, triangle, rhombus, etc. If you forget what the shapes look like you can find them on your template.
Do the best you can. You may not be able to figure out all the shapes.
Tuesday, December 1st: Math Boxes 5.5
The next Math lesson involves 3-Dimensional Shapes. We have examples to use in the classroom but not enough to share with all the children so they can take them home. It would be best to leave this lesson for when we get back. Do the Math Boxes 5.5 from yesterday's lesson on page 122 of your Math Journal and finish up any work that you didn't get done.
Thank you for your hard work in Math during these days students and parents. Our Math is not easy and some of the concepts were new. God bless you for your hard work and faithfulness!
We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
