I/E time stands for intervention and enrichment time. This is a 30 minute block of time set aside in our day for students to receive additional support or enrichment opportunities above the regular curriculum.
This month we have extended our math block and students have continued working towards mastery of multiplication and division skills. Students have been placed in one of four different groups based on student needs and currently level of understanding.
1. The Carr family is having a reunion! Mr. Carr has decided to celebrate with a BIG family picnic. He discovered a great sale on hot dogs at the local supermarket. He bought 14 boxes. There are 24 hot dogs per box. How many hot dogs did he buy in all?
2. Apples are shipped in bushel boxes. The shipping cost per box is $26.00. What will the approximate cost be to ship 89 bushel boxes of apples?
The kids have continued working with data and statistics. To help with this concept, the kids completed a jump rope challenge. For this challenge, students were given one minute to completed as many jumps as possible. Then they recorded their highest number of jumps on the class chart.
After we recorded everyone's jumps, we completed a stem and leaf plot of our data.
We have started out the year with a review data. Our first couple of lessons were on bar graphs and line plots. We then did a brief review on mean, median, mode, and range. As a check point, students brainstormed a question, and collect data. Students are currently finding the mean, median, mode, and range of their own data.
