Lesson Plan

Math Curse Lesson Plan
Grade 4

Jill Whittemore
Students will complete a student checklist while creating their word problem. Included on the check list are appropriate vocabulary, correct grammar, clearly written and easily understood, and does the problem end with a question.

A rubric will be used to assess the student's word problems. The categories are organization, visuals, mechanics, content knowledge and requirements. Each category will be scored 1-4.

As students read their problems, their reading flow, accuracy, vocabulary, and presentation skills will be observed and noted.
If finished early, groups will be provided with a slip of paper containing a word problem from the story to solve.

On the inside cover, there is a Venn Diagram of other stories the two authors have written. Some of these will be available for the students to look at and possibly share with the class.
After the students present their word problems to the class, we will have a closing discussion on:

How each group worked collaboratively and why it's important
How they decided what to write about
How math happens throughout the day, where we see it and where it might be "hidden"
Review math vocabulary on a chart to leave up in the classroom
Written directions will be on the board and handed out.

Visual and verbal reminders of amount of time left.

Students will have different roles in their group.

Students will be able to work with a paraprofessional in a group or individually.

Students will be able to complete the task in parts.

The book will be offered in audio format. There will also be numerous copies throughout the room.

Computers/iPads will be available for typing.

Word problems can be provided for student to identify the key elements and make a sketch for the problem and solve it.

Common Core Standards
Math. Content.4.OA.A.2: Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison.

Math.Content.4.OA.A.3: Solve multiple step word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using four operations.

Math.Content.4.OA.C.5: Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself.

ELA-Literacy.SL.4.1: Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions with diverse partners on grade 4 topics and texts, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly.
Students will demonstrate their understanding of using the four operations by writing word problems.

Students will present their word problem and solve the multistep word problems created by peers.

Students will write their math word problems with correct grammar, transitions, conclusion, and the correct answer.

Students will apply math vocabulary by solving a crossword puzzle online.

Students will compare their word problems with peers by engaging in collaborative discussions explaining their problem, vocabulary used and problem solving strategies.
Learner Outcomes
Students will be divided into groups of four and we will go over the instructions
Discuss the elements of making a word problem (start and end to the problem, specific number of minutes to complete, question and answer). The class will make a chart to guide them.
Discuss what the word problem can be about: chore, getting ready for school, etc.)
In groups, they will decide on a writer, artist, speaker/time keeper, and presenter.
Present problem to the class. The small groups will solve the problems.
