Multi-Step Word Problems, Math Skits, and a FREEBIE

This past week, we started working on multi-step word problems using the 4 operations. My students always have a hard time with this concept because they get overwhelmed having to incorporate and figure out which of the 4 operations they need to solve for as well as having to perform two different operations in one problem. Too often I see them just guessing rather than really thinking each problem through about what is actually happening in the problem. This week, we did some math skits…

It's About Time!

Last weekend I went to the Indiana blogger meet-up at French Lick. I was able to visit old friends and make new friends! It was a lot of fun, but more on that soon! We have Envision math and we are currently on the topic that covers time. Ugh...teaching time is one of the most difficult things for me. I mean, if you think about it there are A LOT of skills for those little 5 and 6 year olds to learn! Here is what I came up with... After the clock is put together, just practice, Practice…

Hi everyone! Do you ever have days if you wonder if your kiddos are ever going to master their basic math facts? It is a struggle for some of my kiddos. We do have great software and internet resources for practice, but if your class is like mine you probably don't have a computer for each student. Well, I took a course on ways to have my students master their facts and this game idea was introduced to me and it is so very inexpensive to make. Materials: Number cubes (dice) Mini playing…
