4/25-29, 5/2-6
For our last week in April we expanded our folktale unit by having the students compose their own music to go with their small group's assigned folktales. Students had to read their folktale and then were assigned a group of 4-5 instruments that they could pick from to add music and sound effects that reflected the story they were reading. Students then performed the piece while taking turns reading the book. The project involved a lot of learning how to work together. We switched topics in May and did a short song about learning different polygons. I wrote a cover song of Uptown Funk that reviewed all the polygons and quadrilaterals the students were learning. The tri in triangle, stands for 3 as you can seeThe quad in quadrilateral, stands for four, no less, no moreThe pent in pentagon, stands for five, now let's move onThe hex in hexagon stands for six, now let's see what sticks.What's that? Hang on! We're here to learn about polygons!What's that? Hang on! We're here to learn about polygons!What's that? Hang on! We're here to learn about polygons!What's that? Hang on! We're here to learn about polygons!The number of sides and anglesThe number of sides and anglesSame number of sides and angles Thats's the answer, I'll give it to yaThats's the answer, I'll give it to yaThats's the answer, I'll give it to yaThe number of sides is the number of anglesDon't believe me just watch!Triangle- 3 sides, 3 anglesQuadrilateral- 4 sides, 4 anglesPentagon- 5 sides, 5 anglesHexagon- 6 sides, 6 anglesIt's a trapezoid it has one set of parallel linesParallelogram - two sets of parallel linesRectangle - Parallelogram with all right anglesRhombus, oh my! A parallelogram with equal sidesWhat's that? I shall, tell you 'bout quadrilateralsWhat's that? I shall, tell you 'bout quadrilateralsWhat's that? I shall, tell you 'bout quadrilaterals What's that? I shall, tell you 'bout quadrilateralsThe square is gonna get ya.The square is gonna trick ya.A square's a rhombus, he'll get ya.Square's a rhombus with right anglesSquare's a rhombus with right anglesA square is also a rectangle A square is also a rectangleRectangle with equal sides
