Math Journal: "Tools for your Toolbox"
I have been asked time and time again about math journals… How do you use them? What is the most effective way to structure them? Can First Graders really use them as a tool? How do you not get overwhelmed when using them?? The great thing about math journals is that there is not just one way to use them… they can be modified to fit your style and organizational preferences. A few summers ago, I was lucky enough to attend the National Singapore Conference in Las Vegas. One of the sessions I…

For the record, first graders catch on very quickly when you are speaking in terms…

Once they found something then they reported back to one of the teacher and we dictated what each child said. At group we had each child come up and tell about what they found that was smaller or bigger than they were. Once they reported we…

Rain, Rain, Go Away.... I shouldn't be so anti-rain. I know we need it, but wow, it makes it hard to get up in the morning AND the kiddos REALLY need to get outside. Recess in the rain?? Let me know tell how how much I'm considering it right now. Anyway, I'm sure a lot of you use The Mitten by Jan Brett in your winter unit. I have been reading that book for years and the kids always love it. It's a great book and even better with Reader's Theater. But, I have never thought to expand it into…

Mental Math Anyone? Okay, I admit that when I hear the phrase "Mental Math" I automatically think that kids will have a hard time with it. Our county is really pushing that we do this with our kids each day. They even gave us a few examples. So, what does a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher do? I tried one. My kids did awesome! Okay....they did pretty poorly. I knew right then I had to back up and teach some strategies and vocabulary that would help them. First of all words like "double it"…
