I know I've said something on my IG account that I use Engage NY now for math, but I didn't know if I said it here. My school decided that Investigations doesn't fulfill our needs to meet CCSS. Engage NY fits it much better and my third grade team was onboard to use it. This unit we are doing now is our first full Engage NY unit. Module. Whatever lol. They have their modules in a different order than what the third grade team teaches math currently, but that's ok. We re-arranged and I think we're good and on goal.
So currently we are doing multiplication and division. My kiddos were both excited and anxious. The way Engage NY has it set up for multiplication is easy to teach and they were getting it! Now between meetings, professional development, and all that fabulous stuff, my lessons were getting shuffled around. The kids had many pre and post tests the week before for reading and math, so I thought we'd have a fun math day. Plus we had an assembly that cut into our math time. Hence, array city math/art time!
They got a black paper for their building and could choose roof and window colors.
Cutting out arrays.
They also had to put their equation on top of the roof.
Nicely done! And excuse the 70's countertop. Yuck!
It was fun, easy, and you bet they'll remember what an array is!
