New TPT Product! So excited!!!  I've been working on this product for a while, but it takes me forever to get anything accomplished these days.

This product stemmed from a conversation that I had with a colleague of mine.  She mentioned how important it is to ensure that we touch based on more than one strand when teaching a unit in mathematics, especially if we want to hit all those expectations before the end of the year.  And I totally agreed with her, and felt that I needed to do MORE of this in my program. So, I'm revamping my math program.  I've decided to breakdown my program into 7 Big Ideas or Concepts.  Each of these concepts touch on various strands of mathematics.

This is the first of 7 that I plan on posting.  Multiplication and Division. It has Number Sense and Numeration, (multiplication and division) Patterning (growing and shrinking patterns, and properties of zero and one in multiplication) and Measurement (area) expectations in this unit. The unit includes:
- a breakdown of your math program and a planner you can use
- a breakdown of the expectations and mathematical process expectations as they relate to this unit
- a diagnostic assessment and rubric
- learning goals
- individual student goal reflection sheets
- Math BUILD centres that you can use when conducting guided reading (lots of interactive games and tasks for students to do)
- Guided Math Planning Sheets, Assessment Sheets, and Suggested Lessons based on the outlined learning goals
- 3 Part Math Lessons
- Inquiry Math Lessons
- Summative Assessment and Checkbric
- Anchor Charts

I'm now taking this particular unit and tweaking it to meet grade 4 expectations.  I also plan posting a grade 3/4 bundle! Keep checking back for updates on these products, as well as the next 6 that I plan on posting.

But for now, check this one out and let me know what you think!
