Year 6 Unit 2 Part 3

Grade 6 Unit 2 Part 3
Goal: Be able to ask and Answer “When is your Birthday?” “It’s in _____”

Start with just the months
              Go through to review

Play Gopher game
              Students must stand up for their birthday month

Ordinal Numbers
              Introduce ordinal numbers
              Start with 4th, 6th, 7th, 16th…. à all the regular numbers
              Then introduce 5th
              Teach 1st, 2nd, 3rd,
              Then show them there is a pattern
                            1st, 21st, 31st, 2nd, 22nd, 32nd, 3rd, 23rd, 33rd

Students should get in pairs and practice
              When is your birthday?
                            It’s January 3rd

Students will each be given a paper with 2 grids on it. One grid is their secret board, one is their guessing board.
Students will put 3 shapes on their secret boards.
They want to try to guess the 3 shapes on their partners board before their partner guesses the shapes on their own board.
To make a guess students must say dates (example January 10th) the other student will look at their board and see if part of a shape is there. They will say Yes or No.
The students take turns making guesses until one of the students has found all the other students shapes.


Cool down
Have students tell me their birthdays when they are finished.
