#### Vocabulary Connection

Each of the 23 lessons in this unit boasts three learning activities. First students use a dictionary to help write sentences about three words that have been presented. Each word relates to a yet unknown “core” word. Next, students complete a dot-to-dot picture that reveals an image of the core word. Finally, having identified the core word, students are asked two research questions about it. The answers to are easily found in an encyclopedia or other resource book. In addition to vocabulary building, the dot-to-dot activities give students practice counting - by odd numbers, by 2’s, starting with 35, and so on.

#### Number Sense: Problem-Solving and Vocabulary Connections

The problems presented in the worksheets are similar to those on the third grade STAAR math test, making this packet ideal for math centers, seat work, early finishers, and older students who need extra review over the basics. It is so important for math students to have a sense of what a reasonable answer is and how to connect the words in a math problem to the process needed to find a solution to the problem. This packet, originally designed for middle school students new to the US and the English language, guides students through everyday vocabulary terms that can give hints about the arithmetic operations needed to solve problems. Different ways of finding a solution are also presented, including using number lines and drawing models. The packet includes: MORE or LESS Activity Sheet: This page helps students develop number sense by thinking about how the expected solution compares to the original amount. MORE or LESS Problem-Solving Activities: These five pages use the problems on the activity sheet to explore problem-solving strategies, vocabulary connections. Graphic Organizer: Students can keep track of their vocabulary connections on the organizer. Operation Sets (14 pages, total): Each of the four basic operations is explored in these sets of worksheets. The first sheet in the set guides students step by step through solving a problem, while subsequent sheets gradually hand over more and more responsibility to the student. The final sheet in each set requires the student to work independently. Answer Sheets: Answer sheets have been included for all activities.

#### PE Curriculum Connection: Integrating Math into PE

ALIGN COMMON CORE MATH STANDARDS IN PE Inside this packet are two Curriculum Connection Signs/Posters for integrating math into physical education. The 2 posters (Kdg. to 2nd and 3rd to 5th) identify 2 Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice for each grade level and provide basic examples of how we can align to the CC math standards with simple PE activities in our daily lessons. The stated PE math applications are simple to do and in most cases we as physical educators, are already incorporating these activities. These signs or posters can be posted in your gyms or hallways leading to your gym entry door and can be displayed for all to see as a testament to how we can integrate academic subject standards into the curriculum we teach. Many of the Math integration activity examples can be easily fused into the fitness and skill-based activities that you are already teaching. By starting a count at a higher number or converting measurement from inches to centimeters you are hitting Common Core Curriculum Math standards that will assist the homeroom teacher during their daily math lessons. What we do in the gym is “real” and can be considered math with real-life application for our students. It is a “Win-Win-Win” for us, the classroom teachers and of course our students. Administrators and parents will love to read these signs/posters and they will automatically bring up a positive conversation. These PE printables come in both a PDF and JPEG format and automatically print on a 8 ½ by 11 inch sheet of standard copy paper but can easily be “blown up” into a large sign or a poster size document (with a school or store poster maker) for all to see. Print, laminate, post and keep for years to come.

#### Healthy Snacks Vocabulary: Crazy Connection Posters and Trading Cards

Do your students struggle with learning new vocabulary words during an healthy snacks unit? What not give crazy connections a try? Healthy Snacks Crazy Connections Vocabulary Posters and Dictionary support students as they learn new vocabulary. Students connect a visual to a vocabulary word. For example, a thumbs up is used to “connect” to preference because people often give a thumbs up to indicate they “like” or “prefer” something. After making the connection of a thumbs up to preference, the thumbs up visual may help some students recall “preference” and its definition. The crazy connections are presented as posters and trading cards. The posters are useful when discussing the different words as a class and can be displayed in the classroom. The trading cards can be used by individual students or by small groups of students. Choose the form of crazy connections that best meets the learning needs of your students. The Crazy Connections Posters and Trading Cards are a part of the Healthy Snacks Digital Teaching Box . If you are looking for more materials to support your students as they learn about healthy snacks, be sure to check out the digital teaching box. © 2016 Regier Educational Resources
