Our current project... Feel free to download as a freebie. The complete Halloween bundle is available on TPT. Enjoy!
I'm a little late with this post on number order from a week ago. As you see from the photo on the left, students first put the correct amount of stickers on each of their numbers. The photo shows the larger numbers we used for the whole group instruction. Every student got a baggie with die cut numbers 1-5 for the independent practice. They were then instructed to glue the numbers in order on the sentence strip. Lastly, we turned the sentence strip into a hat because it's always more fun to WEAR your math lessons! This lesson was super easy and super fun.
Next, we move into numbers 6-10... If you have been keeping up with our blog, you know that our school is committed this year to bringing in the Singapore flair (aka. major hands-on experiences) to our math block. Stay tuned to see how we party with those numbers!
One step further...
Cessy was able to take her Singapore-style math lessons one step further. In addition to the number collections, and collection circle maps, and collection math journal entries,....she included "number combinations" using the egg cartons. It was a hit!
Yup! We brought out the egg cartons. Maybe they are not as pretty as the Lakeshore Ten Frame Trays,....but they didn't cost an arm and a leg! And the kids didn't seem to mind. So the photos above show students' combinations for the number 4. Cessy demonstrated how to use the egg cartons with an example of combinations for 3.
The photo below shows how the students' transferred their findings onto a ten frame on paper. And wow, they got it! Kinder League teachers are loving this form of HANDS-ON math!!!
PK, TK, K, 1st Grades
