Measurement Unit

Not included in these lessons was that we started each day doing SOL 4 Today and a review of the classwork/homework from the previous day.  With all assignments, it is necessary to rotate around the room checking problems as they go answering questions, redirecting, etc...  Anything not completed in class becomes homework.

They CAN use a calculator for this strand - I made them always set up the problem first though.

We also went to the computer lab once a week for practice - you could always tell them to do this at home if they have access to a computer.  There were other things I did but I was not able to locate them and/or did not have them in my plans.

Click on the category/lesson you want below and then you will see just the files that go with that lesson.  It will also give you a brief explanation of what you could do for that lesson.

These were emergency plans for when we lost our building and we had to work out of two local churches.


Lesson 2 ~ Converting Customary Length

  • Go over the notes - stress the "know thats" - the items in both boxes at the top
  • When going over the steps have them circle or highlight the words smaller and larger, as well as multiply and divide.  Do the examples together.
  • On page two stress that they do ALL of the steps. You should do these together.
    • Ex. 1   Think:  ft are larger than in.
      They need to circle larger.
      What does larger mean?  multiply
      How many inches are in a foot? 12
      So... underneath the problem they should write multiply by 12
      Then they show their work - 6 x 12
    • Ex. 2 Think: in. are smaller than yd.
      They need to circle smaller.
      What does smaller mean?  divide
      How many inches are in a foot? 12
      So... underneath the problem they should write divide by 12
      Then they show their work - 72 divided by 12
  • Possible assignment
    • Worksheet on Converting Customary Length
      #17-20 may be challenging so you might want to go over that with them
    • Remind students that they should be studying the Need to Know
    • Tell them that there are some practice links on Mrs. Volz' website
