ALEX Learning Activities  
   View Standards     Standard(s): [MA2015] (3) 4 :
4 ) Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. [3-OA4]


[MA2015] (3) 7 :
7 ) Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 x 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers. [3-OA7]

[MA2015] (2) 2 :
2 ) Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. (See standard 6, Grade 1, for a list of mental strategies.) By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers. [2-OA2]

[MA2015] (4) 4 :
4 ) Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is prime or composite. [4-OA4]

Title: Facts Fluency and Problem Solving With Ken Ken
Description:

Ken Ken is a fun and engaging way for students to practice fluency with math facts as well as develop deductive reasoning skills.  This activity presents the game rules to the students and shows them how to choose the correct size and difficulty level to meet their needs.

 

This activity was created as a result of the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

Title: Dancing to Haikus-Part 1: Identifying Syllables
Description:

The teacher will introduce students to the word syllable and demonstrate to students how to count syllables in words using the digital tool. Next, the teacher will read a haiku poem to students and have the students count the syllables in the haiku using the strategy demonstrated in the video clip. Lastly, the teacher and students will read a variety of haiku poems, with the teacher encouraging the students to identify the syllable pattern in each poem using non-locomotor movements. The students will use mental math to calculate the number of syllables present in each line of a haiku poem and describe how this pattern supplies rhythm in a haiku. 

This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.
