Hey Everybody! I hope you all had a super day today. I am trying very hard to get back into this blogging routine. Between school and home responsibilities in can be tough. Amen ????
So.... for the rest of the calendar year I am going to talk about math on Mondays. Today I am going to give you a brief overview of how we have started off the year. I have been in school for 3 weeks. Today is day 15 for us.
I am to follow the Investigations series. For the most part I love it! However, at times I thinks it moves too fast for my little team of folks this year.
We have started daily data. For now in our class we have one question a week. On Monday we answer the question. On Tuesday we draw the diagram in our notebook. On Wednesday we tally. On Thursday we make a graph and on Friday we write a number sentence and put our data into words. We will follow this pattern for a few more weeks. Our daily data is displayed on a magnet board I have attached to a bulletin board.
We have also began our introduction into money. We created this chart. as we explored the coins.
I changed the way we keep our money. I like these Glad containers better than the ones I have used in the past. Students have an easier time getting the coins out.
What have you been doing in math so far this year?
