Lesson 1.1
· Calendar – Every day attach the Calendar Piece for that day. Students will describe the pattern and predict what will appear next.
· Daily Depositor – You may want to begin the Depositor on September 1st. If you choose to begin in August, each day you will add a dollar equal to the date. Be sure to add money for the weekend days. When trades are necessary, let students explain the trading.
· Counting Tape – The Counting Tape keeps up with the days of school, so on the first day you will write number 1 on adding machine tape. If you don’t begin on the first day, be sure to catch up as soon as possible.
· Coin Counter – The Coin Counter will also match the number of days in school by displaying that value with the fewest number of coins in the top pocket of the Coin Counter. Shade the same number of pennies on the 100 Penny Grid. This is a visual representation of the pennies as a fractional part of one dollar.
· Graph – You will begin the graph in September.
Day 2
Every Day Counts - Update all.
· Calendar – Students will predict what pattern piece and color they think will appear. Students will tell what patterns they see. You may want to record answers to add to them later.
· Counting Tape – On Day 2, you will write a 2 on the Counting Tape next to the 1.
· Coin Counter – Add a penny to show the number of days in school. Shade the same number of pennies of the 100 Penny Grid and record the decimal notation.

· Calendar – What was the date 3 days ago? What will be the day 4 days from today? What color are the odd numbers? What color are the even numbers?

Day 3
Lesson 1.2
Every Day Counts – Update all.
· Calendar – What numbers have dots on them? What does that mean? What is the color pattern? What is the shape pattern?
· Counting Tape – At the end of the first week, students will discuss which numbers on the tape are multiples of 2. Use counters to show that multiples of 2 can be divided into equal groups of 2 without any leftovers. Students discuss that multiples of 2 are also even numbers. As students identify even numbers or multiples of 2 the Heart Multiple Marker will be attached below the number. This will continue for the remainder of the year.
· Coin Counter – When 5 pennies are accumulated for the 5th day of school, you will trade the pennies for a nickel. You will always keep the fewest number of coins in the top pocket. In the other pockets you will display other possible combinations for the same amount. You may want to make a rule about the number of pennies that can be used.

Lesson 1.3

Day 1
· Update all.
· Calendar – What was the date 3 days ago? What will be the date 4 days from today? What was the date a week ago? What will be the date in a week?
· Counting Tape – Can you put 2 counters into equal groups of 2 with no leftovers? (yes) So 2 is a multiple of 2 and gets a heart on the Counting Tape? How about 3? Can the counters be put into equal groups of 2 with no leftovers? (no) So 3 is not a multiple of 2. You will want to continue to have this conversation with different numbers. You may want to have students make a chart to visually show this thinking.

Money will be added for the weekend days and other days students are not in school. Students should begin thinking and predicting whether the Depositor will accumulate one million dollars by the end of school. Update predictions regularly. $1 will be added on the first day of September, $2 will be added on September 2nd, and $3 will be added on September 3, and so on.

Update all.
· Calendar – Use the same calendar pieces for September or make your own using the same shapes with different colors.
· Graph – Use 1 inch Squared Paper to make a bar graph. Cut and tape together 2-inch widths to make a 60” X 2” strip. Place in a small paper bag 1 unnumbered red square and 1 unnumbered blue rectangle. Explain to students that within the month you will have a total of 60 draws from the bag. Students make predictions and post them nearby. For each draw, use a red and blue crayon to record the result of each draw on the bar graph.

Concepts and Skills
- recognize patterns of multiples of 3 and 6.
-compare and analyze attributes of triangles
- visualize rotation of triangles
-recognize lines of symmetry

Calendar
-Triangle - a polygon with 3 sides
-scalene triangle - no sides the same length
-Isosceles - 2 sides of the triangle are the same length
- Equilateral - all sides are the same length.

Draw a line through the isosceles triangle as a line of symmetry. 3 lines of symmetry can be placed through the equilateral triangle.
Number of Green Triangles
Date
1
3
2
6
3
9






The following dates
- all green equilateral triangles: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27 and 30
The green triangles on even multiples of 3 are pointing down and have dots.
- The even multiples of 3 are also multiples of 6.
-The same kind of triangle appears on all the diagonals going down to the left.
- The pattern for the yellow scalene triangles: 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16 OR Beginning with 1 add 3 each time.
-the pattern for the red isosceles triangles is 2, 5, 8, 11,14, 17 or beginning with 2 andd 3 each time.



Daily Depositor
- Add a dollar amount equal to twice the date.

Measurement
-convert feet to yards
- examine mixed numbers and fractional parts
-make connections to multiplication and division
(make 31 foot long strips of colored construction paper. Post 1 12 inch strip of red each day on top. Begin posting below the yard strip.. After 3 days begin posting to a blue strip.Record the length in yards an feet and as a mixed number each day.

Fraction a Day
- understand numerator and denominator
-write improper fractions as mixed numbers
-find a fraction of a set
- add fractions

Materials: 11 circles from TR11 and 11 egg carton dozen from TR12,

Counting Tape
-explore multiples and factors
-Know multiplication facts for 2 and 3
-Investigate multiplication and division with and without remainders.

Make lists of things that come in 2's and 3's

Clock
- Count by 5's and 10's
-Read and set the hour and minute hands
-talk about elapsed time

- set the hour hand on the clock to 9 this month
- Use the number of the day of school, shown on the counting tape to determine where to set the minute hand.

Graph
-Collect and organize data into bar and line graphs
-Analyze and predict using graphs

TR15 centimeter paper
Cut and tape the cm paper to create 2 graphs, each about 10 cm by 50 cm. add labels identifying your locale and the other city where you want to record the temperature.
Add a key below the graphs showing that each square centifmeter represents 2 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Assign 10 dates in October to a few students who will be responsible to for bringing temperature information for both cities.
Daily Routine
- Record the temps by coloring the appropriate number of squares in columns for both cities. Use a different color for each city.
- At end of month convert the bar graph into a modified line graph.
