TEKS

Brief Overview

Kindergarten

The Picture Graph Party

K(8)(B), K(8)(C)

Students will explore and create picture graphs through collaboration and group work.

Balancing Act

K(2)(I)

Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equal before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.

1st grade

Making Ten is as Easy as Pie!

1(1)(E), 1(3)(C)

Students will practice composing 10 by interacting with a counting story, playing a dice game with ten frames and response sheets, and participating in a small group to extend the learning with three addends.

It’s All About the Bend, No Breaking

1(7)(A)

Students will experiment with choosing tools to measure around a previously created pet habitat in preparation for choosing appropriately sized food bowls. Students will use a graphic organizer to record tools chosen and why they were or were not a good choice for continuous measurement.

Subtraction Seekers

1(3)(E)

Students will be introduced to subtraction in an inquirybased lesson that uses concrete examples and allows students to explore through different settings and scenarios.

Lines of Symmetry

1(1)(A); 1(1)(D); 1(1)(E); 1(1)(F); 1(1)(G); 1(6)(G)

Students will work collaboratively with a partner to discover what is a line of symmetry.

Humpty Dumpty’s Mystery Fall

1(1)(E), 1(5)(D), 1(5)(E), 1(5)(F)

Students will listen to the story of Humpty Dumpty and share what they know about the nursery rhyme character. Then, they will help solve the math mystery of Humpty Dumpty and determine the number of broken eggs by finding the missing addend.

Comparing in Stations

1(2)(D); 1(2)(E)

Students will extend their knowledge of greater than and less than to numbers 80–120. Students will work in stations to deepen their understanding and have multiple experiences with the concept.

2nd grade

Comparing Fractional Parts

2(3)(B)

Students will participate in wholegroup and smallgroup instruction as they collaborate and use manipulatives, visuals, and handson activities to explore fractional parts. Ultimately, students will understand that when dividing a whole into fractions, the smaller the fractional part, the greater the number of parts, and the larger the part, the fewer the number of parts.

Subtraction on the Move

2(4)(C)

The students will participate in a number talk focused on subtraction with the subtrahend of nine. Then, they will be paired to rotate around the room working subtraction problems with and without regrouping.

Polygons and Quadrilaterals

2(8)(A)

Learners will engage in higherlevel thinking and studentcentered activities by building on prior knowledge of geometry, actively listening to a polygon story, and applying the new vocabulary through various handson rotations.

Let’s Talk Turkey

2(4)(C)

Students will work collaboratively to apply different strategies such as pictorial representations, partpartwhole, number sentences, and open number lines to solve Thanksgivingthemed onestep and multistep word problems.

Telling Time to the Minute

2(9)(G)

The lesson requires students to match times to the nearest fiveminute interval using an analog clock, digital clock, and time written in words. Students will sing a song, show and write the time to the nearest minute, and tell time using analog watches.

Ravaged Robot

2(9)(F)

Students will learn the concept of area by building a robot using manipulatives and transferring the representation onto grid paper. Then, students will determine the area of each designated body part on their think sheet.

3rd grade

Models of Multiplication

3(4)(K)

Students will solve onestep multiplication problems using various multiplication strategies, such as objects, pictorial models, arrays, equal groups, repeated addition, and number lines.

Distributive Property

3(4)(K)

Students break an array apart to represent the sum of two multiplication facts, showing the distributive property.

Learning the TwoStep Equation

3(5)(B)

Students will physically represent an array, a strip diagram, and an equation before working collaboratively in small groups to create these three models using a word problem.

Birthday Conundrum

3(4)E, 3(5)(B)

Students will work together to determine the amount of each snack item it will take to feed the guests at a birthday party using different methods of multiplication representation.

Just Graph It!

3(5)(B), 3(8)(B)

Students will be involved in a problemsolving lesson in which they are to visually represent previously collected survey data.

Multiplication at the Market

3(4)(E), 3(4)(K)

Students will solve onestep multiplication problems using concrete objects, pictorial models, arrays, and equal groups.

Analyzing Data Using a Dot Plot

3(8)(A)

Students will construct a dot plot using data collected on the faces of a cube after it is rolled. Students will then use a key to change the data to represent a larger population.

Utilize Strip Diagrams to Solve Multistep Multiplication and Division Word Problems

3(4)(K)

Students will utilize manipulatives to create concrete and pictorial strip diagram representations in order to solve multistep multiplication and division word problems.

What Goes in, Must Come Out

3(5)(E)

Students will learn how to use an inputoutput table using realworld examples.
