Planting the Seeds of Perimeter
Students will create planters that meet specific perimeter dimensions. The students will need to determine the number of sides and the perimeter for their planter.
Models of Multiplication
Students will solve onestep multiplication problems using various multiplication strategies such as objects, pictorial models, arrays, equal groups, repeated addition, and number lines.

Multiplication at the Market
Students will solve onestep multiplication problems using concrete objects, pictorial models, arrays, and equal groups.
From Dogs/Not Dogs to Prisms/Not Prisms
Students will work in pairs, groups, and independently to sort and classify 2D and 3D shapes using formal geometric language. Students will have opportunities to explore the work of other groups to expand their thinking and find new ways that shapes can be sorted and classified. Students will engage in multiple conversations using accurate geometrical language to ask questions, explore a variety of reasonings, and share generalizations about shapes.
Distributive Property
Students break an array apart to represent the sum of two multiplication facts, showing the distributive property.
Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) Related to the Unit
As we looked at the vertical alignment document available to teachers through the Texas Education Agency and regional TEKS resource pages, it became evident why students struggle with this standard. The skills and knowledge within this standard are not addressed in the secondgrade TEKS. Students are also required to use multiple skills to correctly calculate the answer using the distributive property. The chosen standard is identified as a thirdgrade readiness standard, which means that the intent is to help students develop a deep understanding of how to effectively use these skills in mathematics. This deep understanding is desired to help students at the fourthgrade level since the standard is identified as a supporting standard.

Decoding Word Problems
This lesson focuses on multistep word problems involving division along with addition or subtraction. The students chunk word problems into each individual step and learn how to choose a familiar strategy.
What Goes In, Must Come Out
Students will learn how to use an inputoutput table using realworld examples.
Analyzing Data Using a Dot Plot
Students will construct a dot plot using data collected on the faces of a cube after it is rolled. Students will then use a key to change the data to represent a larger population.

The Great Classroom Escape
Students will work collaboratively to solve six realworld multiplication problems and earn puzzle pieces they can put together to reveal a phone number they can call to escape the classroom.
Graphs and More Graphs Oh My!
Students will gather data based on a game and create the four types of graphs (pictograph, frequency table, bar graph, and dot plot).
