|I need to preface this with saying I know I am not an artist but I love me some stick figures, lol. We took our first test in first grade this week (a math test for chapter 1) and I wanted to go over my expectations of a good test taker. Testing Timothy was born. We talked about good behaviors and choices we saw and now have an anchor chart to refer to.|
|Chapter 2 in math is Number Bonds. We learn about two numbers making a larger number. I had the kiddos make number bonds out of colored paper and I broke out the unifix cubes. This year I had magnetic ones for me to use to model composing and decomposing numbers. #PartPartWhole|
|"Show me two numbers that make a 7."|
And when I'd call on the kids they were really using math language. I head "3 and 4 make 7." "1 plus 6 is 7."
|A good kinesthetic activity.|
Okay, that's all for now. I'm going to finish watching my DVR'ed Big Brother (what a stinkin' flip in the game!!)
