Math in Focus: Singapore math
Why did we choose this series?
We chose this series because it will challenge and strengthen the student’s Math skills. It requires students to think before they answer questions.
What resources do you have?
The students have a textbook and workbook. They are split into A and B. A focuses on the skill and B focuses on applying the skill. I also have a reteach, extra practice, and enrichment book to help the students.
What should I do if my child is having trouble or if I have questions?
I am always open to answering questions. You may e-mail me anytime. If your child is having trouble with a problem, circle it and I can help them the next day.
What are we working on?
4-OL: We are working on understanding how to make equivalent fractions. They made a sandwich game this week. They are, also, creating their own pizza in class.
4-A: We are working on decimals. This week we focused on the tenths place. We are choosing to show our understanding in our own way. They will make a comic book, cool kids room, story, speech, or mini book on what the tenths mean.
5-OL: We are working on multiplying fractions. We get to make a dog house this week and measure it to find the area using fractions.
5-A: We are working on multiplying and dividing decimals. We are working on a long term enrichment class project about decimals, proportions, ratios, and fractions.
Meet Your Teacher
My name is Miss Bianchi. I am a graduate of Saint Xavier University. I got my degree in Elementary Education. I, also, have my Mathematics and ESL endorsement. I also want to get my LBS (Learning Behavior Specialty) endorsement this year. I have worked as an aide, substitute, interventionist, and STEM teacher for Stellar Girls. My goal for math students is to teach them how to think mathematically. It is important to teach students the skills to become a great mathematician. I am excited to teach at St. Mary’s this year!
