## 4.1-Unit 1: Place Value

*4.NBT.1*and

*4.NBT.2*.

*4.NBT.1*requires students to be able to recognize that a digit in one place has a value ten times greater than the same digit in the place to its right. Students will use number cards as well as place value mats and anchor charts from their math journals to demonstrate the relative value of digits as they explore larger numbers.

*4.NBT.2*requires students to be able to recognize and write numbers in standard form, word form, expanded form and base-ten form as well as compare those numbers. We will use number cards and base-ten blocks to create different multi-digit numbers and record the numbers in the various forms. Students will write their "I can" statements in their math journals for each standard, take notes and record examples.

__4.1 Standards for the Week:__*4.NBT.2*Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit number based on meaning of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

*4.NBT.1*Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.

## 4.2-Unit 5: Decimal Fractions

This week your child was introduced to their next standard of Unit 5:

*4.NF.6.*

*This standard requires the student to be able to convert a decimal fraction to a decimal (i.e.: 61/100 = .61). We will do this using visual models and number lines. We will also practice this skill within word problems. Your child will be taking notes on the standards throughout the week in their Math Journals. Please remember that these are wonderful study tools that we encourage the students take home (as long as they remember to bring them back!) The students have been taking very neat, detailed notes that I know will makes awesome study tools!*

__4.2 Standards for the Week:__*4.NF.6 -*Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate 0.62 on a number line diagram.

## 5.1-Unit 1: Order of Operations

*5.OA.1*and

*5.OA.2*which require students to be able to correctly follow the order of operations when solving expressions (5.OA.1) and interpret both written and numerical expressions (5.OA.2) Students will write their "I can" statements in their math journals for each standard, take notes and record examples.

__5.1 Standards for the Week:__*5.OA.1*Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.

*5.OA.2*Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921,

without having to calculate the indicated sum

or product.
