CHORUS:
It’s backwards day And everything is turned around It’s backwards day Front is back And back is front And down is up And up is down On backwards day When I got to school this morning Something didn’t seem right Instead of sunshine It was dark as night And then I noticed that the kids were teachers And the teachers were kids And the principal was in trouble I don’t know what he did! CHORUS: It’s backwards day And everything is turned around It’s backwards day Front is back And back is front And down is up And up is down On backwards day It was so hot outside Then it started snowing It was the middle of a hurricane `But no wind was blowing When we read our books All the hard words were a piece of cake And I noticed for breakfast I had a big, juicy steak CHORUS: It’s backwards day And everything is turned around It’s backwards day Front is back And back is front And down is up And up is down On backwards day Walking down the hallway Something seemed weird All the kids had their clothes on backwards And they grew long beards Instead of going in the front door We went to the back All of the boards, instead of white Now they were black On backwards day CHORUS: It’s backwards day And everything is turned around It’s backwards day Front is back And back is front And down is up And up is down On backwards day

## Area & Perimeter
1/19/2016
Unit Name: Area and Perimeter4.MD.3 Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.Essential Vocabulary: multiplication/multiply area array square unit product perimeter length width Unit Overview:In this unit, students will apply their understanding of area and perimeter of rectangles from 3rd grade to help them explore the understanding of the abstract formula A = l x w. In addition, students will generate and discuss the different pros and cons for the formulas for perimeter such as: P = 2l + 2w and P = 2(l + w). The first formula has an additional step compared to the second formula with multiplying the length by two, multiplying the width by two and then adding both together. The second formula has the length and width added together and then multiplying it by two. *Apply understanding to formula does not mean write down a memorized formula and put in known values. Students do not need to do this until 6th grade. Strategies/Skills:Students will build on their understanding of area and perimeter to make sense of the standard algorithms. They are expected to use a variety of models to support their reasoning about numbers.

If your child is having problems, please let the classroom teacher know. When helping your child with his/her math homework, you don’t have to know all the answers! Instead, we encourage you to ask probing questions so your child can work through the challenges independently. What is the problem you’re working on? What do the directions say? What do you already know that can help you solve the problem? What have you done so far and where are you stuck? Where can we find help in your notes? Are there manipulatives, pictures, or models that would help? Can you explain what you did in class today? Did your teacher work examples that you could use? Can you go onto another problem & come back to this one later Can you mark this problem so you can ask the teacher for an explanation tomorrow? ## 2-D Figures

Common Core State Standards:4.G.2 Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right angles. Essential Vocabulary: quadrilateral isosceles trapezoid trapezoid rhombus parallelogram rectangle square right triangle right obtuse acute attributes parallel perpendicular congruent equilateral isosceles scalene kite Unit Overview:In this unit, students will build upon their understanding of identifying various shapes through attributes. In this unit students will focus on identifying parallel lines and perpendicular lines while identifying the angles used from the previous units: acute, obtuse, and right. Students will investigate the concept of “same size and same shape”; however, the concept of congruence and similarity do not appear until middle school. Strategies/Skills:Students will build on their understanding of geometric shapes and go further with identifying and measuring angles. Students will model mastery of this concept through the following ways: drawing identifying analyzing Video Supporto Classify two-dimensional figures by examining their properties https://learnzillion.com/lessons/2879-classify-twodimensional-figures-by-examining-their- properties o Classify triangles by examining their properties https://learnzillion.com/lessons/3040-classify-triangles-by-examining-their-properties o Classify right triangles https://learnzillion.com/lessons/3069-classify-right-triangles o Classify various quadrilaterals by describing their properties https://learnzillion.com/lessons/2936-classify-various-quadrilaterals-by-describing-their- properties o Classify quadrilaterals by examining their sides https://learnzillion.com/lessons/2937-classify-quadrilaterals-by-examining-their-sides o Classify parallelograms by examining their angles and sides https://learnzillion.com/lessons/2988-classify-parallelograms-by-examining-their-angles-and- sides |
