**The following dates/times are still available for scheduling:**

**BUTTON UP**

Using the book “The Button Box,” students will engage in a variety of button counting and sorting activities. A variety of buttons will be needed, both on the clothing the children wear and those brought from home or supplied by the teacher.

**Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Math:**

- K.CC.A.1 Count to 100 by ones and by tens.
- K.CC.C.6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.
- K.CC.C.6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g., by using matching and counting strategies.

**HOMOPHONES AND HOMONYMS**

Using the book “The King Who Rained” by Fred Gwynn, students will be exposed to homophones and homonyms. They will then have the opportunity to play homophone memory.

**Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for ELA: Literacy**

- Literacy.1.5, Literacy.2.5 - With guidance and support from adults, demonstrate understanding of word relationships and nuances in word meanings.

**Chocolate**

How is chocolate made? Learn the secret and take part in a fun chocolate investigation to study the changing states of matter. Teacher will need to provide plastic sandwich bags and chocolate chips.

**Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Science **

- 2-PS1-4. Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot.

**THE ART OF MATHEMATICS: MONDRIAN FRACTIONS**

Students learn about famous artists while using their math skills. They will learn about the art of Piet Mondrian, the Dutch artist known for his geometric paintings using bold, primary colors. Students will create a Mondrian-style piece of art that follows set fraction guidelines.

**Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Math:**

- 3.NF.A.1 Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.
- 3.NF.A.3 Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.

**THE ART OF MATHEMATICS: KLEE MATH**

Students learn about famous artists while using their math skills. They will create a piece of art inspired by Paul Klee’s painting *Farbtafel*. They will then use that artwork to calculate fractions, percentages, perimeter and area.

**Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Math:**

- 4.NF.C.5 Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100.2
- 4.NF.C.6 Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100.
- 4.MD.A.3 Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.

**VALENTINE COORDINATES**

Following a brief history of Valentine’s Day, students can practice plotting points on graphs and using coordinates in a fun, holiday-themed way with this program. Teachers will be asked to supply Valentine candy.

**Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Math: **

- 5.G.A.1 Use a pair of perpendicular number lines, called axes, to define a coordinate system, with the intersection of the lines (the origin) arranged to coincide with the 0 on each line and a given point in the plane located by using an ordered pair of numbers, called its coordinates. Understand that the first number indicates how far to travel from the origin in the direction of one axis, and the second number indicates how far to travel in the direction of the second axis, with the convention that the names of the two axes and the coordinates correspond (e.g.,
*x*-axis and*x*-coordinate,*y*-axis and*y*-coordinate). - 5.G.A.2 Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.

**CODES AND CIPHERS**

Early codes were developed to encrypt sensitive information in times of war to deceive enemies and spies. Students will learn about different types of codes/ciphers and then use them to solve a mystery.

**Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Math:**

- Math.Practice.MP1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Math.Practice.MP2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Math.Practice.MP3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Math.Practice.MP5 Use appropriate tools strategically.
