In 3L we have begun a new discussion on the “Seven Habits of Happy Kids”. This is a series which introduces kids and in most cases, just brings to the forefront, qualites to be successful! In the classroom and outside of it!
This month, we have talked about the first quality which is:
Being in charge of our own actions and being responsible for ourselves has led our discussion. That making good choices and thinking before we act or speak, is necessary for our long term success. That even when no one is looking, we need to make responsible choices.
A good starting point for a home discussion as well!
Anchor charts for Area and Perimeter:
“1,2,3,4… that makes 34? No it’s____ummm…” If you are having trouble calculating perimeter and area keep reading because I’m going to tell you how!
Here’s an example, picture a square. Picture it on a piece of grid paper and each square on the grid paper is 1 cm (centimeter). Step one: count the 1 cm squares on top of the big square and you count 2 little squares so you write 2 cm above the big square. Do the same with the other sides BUT you have to measure because some figures will not have equal sides like the square! Eventualy you will find harder figures that are iregular. That means figures that are not squares or rectangles they are strange shapes. We are getting a bit off topic here’s step 2. Step 2: Add all your numbers together like a equation 🙂 ! Because the square has 4 equal sides we have: 2cm+2cm+2cm+2cm and of course that makes 8 cm. Sometimes you will not be using cm so be sure to mark your unit. Tip: if you are measuring perimeter and there is a angle count it as one unit! Time to talk area! lets practice with a rectangle (on grid paper)
Step one: count how many units (tiny squares) are in side of the figure. Imagtion you count 10 units on the in side! Easy, right? Step two: write as your finishing sentance: A= 10 units 2. The “2” means square because you’re using square units to measure. TIP: If you come across a angle you don’t count as one you count it as a half. If there is two halfs you count it as a whole unit because half and half make a whole.
Thats how you calculate perimeter and area! Thanks for reading!
first,I’m going to show you how to measusur area of shapes.first if you get a graf paper and druw a sqwer count the inside.now im gowing to show
how to do the perimeter. first you get a graf paper and druw a sqraer and count the outside.thats how i do it. thats how to maesusuer the areaand the perimeter.
Hi and i will going to tell you what area and perimeter is.What a area is is a whats inside a shape like you count how mutch dots in the circle. What perimiter is you count how mutch is out side the shape.what they do all togeather is you put the dots in the inside and the out side the shape. that is what perimiter and area means.
I am going to help you to calcuate perimeter and area for instin 3 blocks and rpeting 4 more times your area would be 12 untis 2 the primiter would
be the out side of the objectb say it is 16 unitis a nother egsampel 5 block in 4 the area would be 20
