I have been asked time and time again about math journals… How do you use them? What is the most effective way to structure them? Can First Graders really use them as a tool? How do you not get overwhelmed when using them?? The great thing about math journals is that there is not just one way to use them… they can be modified to fit your style and organizational preferences. A few summers ago, I was lucky enough to attend the National Singapore Conference in Las Vegas. One of the sessions I…

Check out these 6 easy and fun ways to help your students master their basic math facts.

We started fractions this week! I have never taught fractions before because my district only recently adopted the Math Common Core and so I was excited to see how it would go! We started with an anchor chart I made to discuss the different ways to create equal parts from a whole. While I discussed this chart with my kids I tried to relate it to some real-life examples that would be applicable in their lives. For the record, first graders catch on very quickly when you are speaking in terms…

This week's topic was great for us to go back and actually LOOK at what we've pinned! We had so many great ideas....just need to implement them during the school year! Love these math journals...easy and simple. No paper copies needed! This giant size hundred chart is a great idea! Another easy activity to throw together....just need paper and dice! These shape monsters are darling! We study shapes for a LONG time...these guys would definitely liven up our unit! Great, fun way to do…

Today we read the book Big Dog...Little Dog (Beginner Books(R)). After reading the story we measured each child using yarn. We had the children go around the room finding something that they where bigger than and something that they where smaller than. Once they found something then they reported back to one of the teacher and we dictated what each child said. At group we had each child come up and tell about what they found that was smaller or bigger than they were. Once they reported we…

Rain, Rain, Go Away.... I shouldn't be so anti-rain. I know we need it, but wow, it makes it hard to get up in the morning AND the kiddos REALLY need to get outside. Recess in the rain?? Let me know tell how how much I'm considering it right now. Anyway, I'm sure a lot of you use The Mitten by Jan Brett in your winter unit. I have been reading that book for years and the kids always love it. It's a great book and even better with Reader's Theater. But, I have never thought to expand it into…

Mental Math Anyone? Okay, I admit that when I hear the phrase "Mental Math" I automatically think that kids will have a hard time with it. Our county is really pushing that we do this with our kids each day. They even gave us a few examples. So, what does a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher do? I tried one. My kids did awesome! Okay....they did pretty poorly. I knew right then I had to back up and teach some strategies and vocabulary that would help them. First of all words like "double it"…
