Y’all these babies are so sweet. Firsties are the best. (smile)
This goes hand in hand with the core standards.
I will be posting more math pics soon….. The play dough math mats went over great. It’s amazing what the core can make your students do! Y’all I’ve had the pleasure of working with the second grade teachers this week centered around the core math. They are transitioning to it next year. They are a little scared (poor darlings they don’t know whats coming) They often ask when do I sleep. (sigh…… well… I just tell them my poor husband got kicked to the curb this year) I keep telling them it’s all worth it. How speechless it leaves me after the lessons are over. The idea of concrete…. representational… abstract really is the way to learn math. I am seeing it everyday. How has the core changed you as a teacher?
