### Combine Sentences (Some Subject or Some Predicate)

This lesson is a part of our Link to Literacy program.

### Restate Details from Text

This reading informational text lesson is designed as a part of our Link to Literacy English Language Development program. This description will be updated soon.

### Write a Paragraph

This writing lesson uses teacher guidance and support to help students write a paragraph that is appropriate to the task and purpose. In this lesson, students will review a topic, write a topic sentence, add details, and a concluding idea in a graphic organizer. Then, they will write a paragraph.

### Edit Text for Run-On Sentences

W.4.5 With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, and editing. (Editing for conventions should demonstrate command of Language standards 1-3 up to and including grade 4 here.)

L.4.1.FL.4.1.F Produce complete sentences, recognizing and correcting inappropriate fragments and run-ons.*

In this Language lesson, students will edit text to correct run-on sentences. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of facts and details related to topics for review and organizing.

### Interpret Multiplication as Groups of Objects

This operations and algebraic thinking lesson covers how to interpret multiplication as repeated addition of groups of equal amounts. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will examine word and picture problems to determine the number of groups and amount in each group. Then, they will select or create which situation can be solved using given multiplication statements.

### Use the Associative Property of Multiplication

This algebra and functions lesson focuses on using the associative property of multiplication. The lesson includes research-based strategies and questions that help prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students multiply the first two factors in column A, then multiply that product by the remaining factor. Then, they repeat they repeat the steps for column B. Finally, students compare the final products in column A and B. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.

### Find the Area of Rectangles Using Multiplication

3.MD.7 Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.

3.MD.7.D3.MD.7.D Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.

This measurement and data lesson covers how to find the area of rectangles using multiplication. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will identify the side lengths or a rectangle, and then multiply to find the area and interpret the result.

### Determine the Unit Fraction of a Whole

This numbers and operations âˆ’ fractions lesson covers how to determine the unit fraction of a whole. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will read the problem and identify what they are looking for. Then, they will write the numerator and denominator of the unit fraction, and interpret the result.

### Represent Unit Fractions on a Number Line

This numbers and operations âˆ’ fractions lesson covers how to represent unit fractions on a number line. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will read the problem and determine the total number of equal parts using the denominator. Then, they will divide the number line into the total number of equal parts, and represent the unit fraction on the number line.

### Generate Equivalent Fractions

This number and operations--fractions lesson teaches students how to generate equivalent fractions. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will create equivalent fractions. This lesson focuses on changing a fraction to another. Students are provided a variety of strategies and support to visualize the equivalence. Real-world examples are also provided.

### Solve Two-Step Word Problems

Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

### Select Operational Symbols that Make an Expression True

This algebra and functions lesson focuses on selecting operational symbols that make an expression true. The lesson includes research-based strategies and questions that help prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students identify the largest number in the number sentence. If the larger number is the answer they use addition and multiplication, and if the larger number is in the expression they use subtraction and division. Finally, students write the expression with both operations and solve each. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.

### Draw a Bar Graph

This measurement and data lesson covers how to draw a bar graph. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will read the given data set, write the given categories in the bar graph, and determine how high to draw the bar.

### Determine All Factor Pairs of Numbers

This operations and algebraic thinking lesson teaches students how to determine all the factor pairs of a number. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will determine all of the factor pairs of a given number. This is in preparation for later mathematics where students will need to determine a variety of factors for fractions, factoring equations, and several other uses for this particular skill. It is an excellent introduction to factoring and provides several real-world examples for students to practice with.

### Multiply a Multi-Digit Number By a One Digit Number

This number sense lesson focuses on multiplying numbers with regrouping. The lesson includes research-based strategies and questions that help prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students multiply the bottom number with each digit of the top number, regrouping if needed (add the regrouped number, if needed). Then, they read the product aloud. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.

### Divide Multi-Digit Numbers By a One-Digit Number

This number sense lesson focuses on solving division problems that have a remainder. The lesson includes research-based strategies and questions that help prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students identify the dividend and the divisor. Then, they solve for the division problem by following the basic steps of division (divide, multiply, subtract, and bring down) and writing in the remainder. Finally, students interpret the quotient and remainder. In addition to the lesson, there are eight pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.
