Item ELC-4019

From time to time as teachers, we find ourselves being faced with the task of meeting the needs of those students who have a different grasp of geometry, art, math, and even science. We find ourselves challenged by their perception of space and design, and their definition of beauty. They see beauty in straight lines, angles, light, and shadows. Our first go-to action is to encourage them to take up photography, thus bypassing concepts such as geometry, art appreciation, design and/or math.

This uniquely integrated curriculum brings Geometry, Math, History, Technology, Art, and Science together. Designed for levels 9-12 it begins by encouraging children to explore and develop an understanding of the foundational concepts relating to architecture. It then moves to actual designs, experimentation, and functionality. Activities that engage make use of MakerSpace, along with a hands-on approach to implement NGSS standards, it allows for an innovative way of bringing STEM into your classroom. Moving through time, children are introduced to architectural styles, unique approaches, and designs that elevate art to new level of perceptual adaptation, where they can focus on concrete foundational knowledge and build on ideas that go past a simple arch or a bridge made out of popsicles.

Begin using the information and activities as a springboard that combines Art and Geometry to enhance group projects in such a way that your students are enticed to think of architecture in a new way. For architecture, despite all its constraints relating to safety, function, climate responsibility and economy, brings about inspiration using light and form; that it achieves the same qualities Art does through the ages, down to the abstract quality of what defines "beauty".

Transition Math Task Cards. Level 9-12

More, and more students are moving into the upper elementary classroom without having achieved abstraction in multiplication and as a result, are not introduced to the whole number division sequence. Furthermore, we found that students continue to be weak in their multiplication facts, particularly those facts pertaining to 6s, 7s, 8s, and 9s. This lack of achievement in abstraction and consequential weakness in understanding, results in the inability of children to participate in more advanced multiplication presentations.

Our findings are particularly problematic since the mathematical sequence for both the advanced fractions and decimals assumes knowledge of all whole number operations. Having taken all of these facts into consideration, we designed the Transition Math Task Cards for Level 9-12. With the understanding that teachers must bridge these gaps, while meeting math standards, we believe that this program is a viable sequence to help children move forward. The task cards provide many opportunities for fact acquisition, and pertinent mathematical comprehension of what happens when multiplying by factors of ten. Children are also introduced to single- and double-digit divisions, allowing them to understand the relationship that exists between the two operations.

Considered a symbol of the divine symmetry and balance in nature, the circle was one of the most revered and fascinating geometric shapes. Greek mathematicians were enthralled by the geometry of circles and explored their properties for centuries. This highly symmetrical shape is unique in that every line through the center forms a line of reflection symmetry. A world without circles would surely be a very "square" world!

Self-contained in a wooden box with lid
20 Acrylic circles for hands on explorations

Lower and Upper-Case Letter Differentiation.

This shelf ready work with provided capital and lower-case movable alphabet letters, helps children to recognize lower case letters associated with the initial sound of a picture and provides opportunities to learn the corresponding upper-case letter. This is a more advanced activity, and it usually follows the preceding five activities:

• Word segmentation
• Alphabetic principles
• Initial and ending sound recognition
• What's the New Word? Kit A
• What's the New Word? Kit B

The set includes the following:

• 26 strips of cards that are printed on thick plastic with all the corners rounded.

• 2 sets of print movable alphabet letters with consonants in red and vowels in blue. One set is a lower-case and the second is an upper-case alphabet. The movable alphabets are laser cut from premium 1/8" colored acrylic. (Acrylic comes with protective covering that must be peeled prior to using.)
What’s the New Word? Kit B

This shelf activity with the included movable alphabet letters allows children to work on substitution of initial sounds with a different phoneme to create a new word.

This set works with C/V/C words for the pink reading series. Includes all five vowel sounds.

The set includes the following:

• 30 Puzzle cards that are printed on extra thick puzzle substrate with individual cuts to differentiate and make each combination unique. The middle plastic layer of this paper has a pearl color allowing you to differentiate from the cards in kit A.

• Consonant alphabet letters in red for the initial and ending sounds. The letters are laser cut from premium 1/8" colored acrylic and are designed to match exactly the font used on the cards. (Acrylic comes with protective covering that must be peeled prior to using.)
