Sixth Grade Math  

View Events/Assignments for 

Each 6th grade math class meets daily for 95 minutes.  Most of the class activities are conducted in small groups/shoulder partners of which I facilitate and closely monitor.  Terminology for Class Lesson Flow is as follows:

Daily Data: Students use a single/double Venn diagrams and Line Plots to collect classroom data relating to a statement written on the board. They then write the data as fraction/decimal/percent values.

Problem of the Day:  This is a standardized test-type word problem that is projected on the screen. Students determine the correct answer from 4 answer choices.

Fluency Builder:  This is an activity that checks for fluency in math truths and prepares the students for the upcoming lesson.

RtI Activity:  These are kinesthetic/visual activities designed to specifically align with the students' level of understanding and preferred learning style.

Modeling:  Students use manipulatives such as base ten blocks, counters, color tiles, algebra tiles, colored discs, and solid figures to develop high levels of understanding of math content.

Vocabulary Builder: Students will use a graphic organizer to learn more about terms used in math.

Vocabulary Activity:  This activity is to ground the students in the knowledge of math terms and their meanings as they are applied in real world problems/situations. This usually involves games such as matching, "Concentration,"  and "Clue,"

Engage:  This activity accesses prior knowledge upon which students will build the new math concepts.

Unlock the Problem:  This is the introduction to the math objective for the lesson.  This is guided practice led completely by the teacher.

Independent Practice:  This is a "Try It On Your Own" activity, and the students usually work in small groups or shoulder partners as the teacher moves about the room.

Real World Problem:  This is practical application of the math concept in a real world setting; this is usually done in small groups.

Enrich:  This is a higher-level thinking activity that provides opportunities for students to apply knowledge of math content in complex situations.

Test Prep:  This consists of 1 to 4 standardized test-type problems that the students usually complete on their own.

Formative Assessments: These are quick, informal assessments that are administered throughout the lesson to help the teacher know who has a clear understanding of the concept and who needs a little more help.
