Happy 4th of July to everyone!!!
I am still trying to catch up on by blog book study of Debbie Diller's Math Work Stations. Today my post is in response to Chapter 6: Place Value Work Stations.
Below I will give my answers to the guiding questions on our Math Work Stations Book Mark that I got from Deedee Wills over at Mrs. Wills Kindergarten.
How do you support math vocabulary (math talk) at Place Value stations?
I plan to use math talk cards to help support math vocabulary. I also plan to incorporate math anchor charts and I Can charts.
What student activities help support your student's understanding of place value?
This year I plan to use number lines, hundreds chart, tens frames, base 10 blocks and sticker strips (these are with the investigations program that I will be using in the fall) to help the children better understand the place value system. This is such an important concept in second grade. I will admit that I have relied heavily on our current math series, however, I plan to use many of the resources on other blogs to help support the children's understanding of place value.
What is your student's favorite place value work station/activity?
I love working with the hundreds chart. So I think my children have grown to love to use it also. Many activities I have used in the past has come from the book 1-100 Activity Book from Learning Resources. However, I plan to implement many of the new activities that have been posted over at Oceans of First Grade Fun Linky Party for this Chapter.
