Well let’s just say that time management is not my best quality. I haven’t quite figured out how to work all night long and sleep 3 hours. haha Let me know if there is a secret. I’ve been the worst blogger the last month. My sweet boy, work, and building a house have been my main focuses lately. Here are some happenings in our classroom over the last three weeks. In math we finished up our number sense unit and are diving deep into addition and moving into subtraction.
We ARRRRRed up as pirates on our math mats showing addition and writing a matching number sentence. I love this lesson, because the students are doing so many steps in the addition process. First they listen to the story problem, then they create it on their math mat, then discuss their thinking with a buddy and finally ATTACK (that’s what we call solve).
