Vocabulary sheet goes to the forefront Definitions for these vocabulary due tomorrow. Lesson for today:
Collect vocabulary

MATH 6
Monday- discuss “Forensic Investigation Practices” and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard questions before puzzle work (DO THE DOWN PROBLEMS)
J-Lab time will be for spreadsheet assembly… plan for a cbm moment as well, so we can start plotting our correct number of digits. J
Puzzle 1: working with problems DOWN, students are assigned problems to solve and teach to the rest of the class Concepts explored: _ Austin DACS testing… Conference about DACS scores and hand out progress reports. J
Hand in: page 5/46
HOMEWORK: complete journal page (“Four Points of Interest”)
TUESDAY Copy into MATH TAB: 6.NS.3. Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.
Still working on: 6.G.1. Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
HOMEWORK: complete journal page and DACS practice about circle parts, reasoning, and polygons
WEDNESDAY quickly discuss DACS practice and move into lab: “Geoboard Challenge”
Lab from text p. 702 about parallelograms and do story problems p. 701 involving finding area of parallelograms
Word Wall Wednesday: last 12 minutes work on word wall project
HOMEWORK: complete journal page, word wall project, and p. 701 story problems
THURSDAY Work on p. 701 first. Then, students who have their work done may get on J-Lab today and work on Mrs. Bodensteiner’s projects. If there is time, targeted students need to meet with me as well: Preston, Charles, and David need to work on multiplication… Jasmine? Work on 14-3 Area of Odd Figures p. 708 _copy
HOMEWORK: page 6/47 skills: whole number analysis and estimate quotients
MATH 6
Next Monday- discuss “Forensic Investigation Practices” and Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard questions before puzzle work

MONDAY Puzzle 1: working with problems ACROSS, students are assigned problems to solve and teach to the rest of the class Concepts explored: estimating (7th grade actually had a debate during this class period about what is considered “close”), order of operations, and characteristics of a parallelogram
Go over page 4/45
HOMEWORK: vocabulary list and complete journal page (“Four Points of Interest”)
TUESDAY Old Business: 14-1 area of parallelograms… we are still working on this assignment. Taking time to work with mixed numbers and decimals in the problems. Put problems on board and have students go to the board to see if they can solve problems. Or have them go to camera and share their work.
Copy into MATH TAB: 6.NS.2. Fluently divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm.
Still working on: 6.G.1. Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

Word Wall Wednesday: sign up for vocabulary project and work on definitions for this unit
HOMEWORK: complete journal page and p. 701 story problems
THURSDAY Work on p. 701 first. Then, students who have their work done may get on J-Lab today and work on Mrs. Bodensteiner’s projects. If there is time, targeted students need to meet with me as well: Preston, Charles, and David need to work on multiplication… Jasmine? Work on 14-3 Area of Odd Figures p. 708 ___copy
HOMEWORK: page 5/46 skills: whole number analysis and estimate products
