Strategies for Instruction in Mathematics, Grade 4.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
This publication is designed to provide teachers with Grade 4 activities in mathematics that match the requirements of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. The Grade 4 Mathematics Standard and related competency goals and objectives from the North Carolina Standard Course of Study and Mathematics Teacher Handbook are reproduced in the initial section. The remainder of the book is separated into six sections. The first section provides a week-by-week guide of activities for the classroom. The sheet for each week contains four facts the students are to review, a calculator exploration, eight mental math problems, a game of the week with accompanying worksheet, a problem for the week, a data exploration to be integrated with other subjects, and a question to discuss. The second section elaborates on the competency goals and objectives, and suggests activities to help attain each objective. The third section discusses an integrated approach to teaching mathematics and social studies. The approach is made up of ten segments that refer the teacher back to the activities provided in the week-by-week guide. Lesson plans are provided for each segment. The fourth section describes a year-long project called "We Like Calling North Carolina Home," designed to be a part of the ongoing bulletin board display in the classroom. The fifth section contains teacher-generated activities to be shared with teachers. The final section provides reproducible blackline masters as support material for activities in the book. (MDH)
