#### number of the day #morning work Saw a wonderful teacher do this every morning and it was awesome. She just added the whole class together finger spelling it in the air. #math #journal #notebook

#### For classroom activities, this is a great way to teach math. Each day, the teacher would give out a new number to the class so the kids would be excited to see which number they would get. Then, the students would be practicing basic math skills and by repeating this activity every day or once a week, the students will become comfortable with these operations.

#### Here's a good math activity to help start off each morning!

This is an activity for students to learn the use of decimals in math. This is a fun way for the students to role play being in a restaurant and using addition of decimals. I believe that this lesson creates a hands on experience that students will enjoy and it gives many different options for the students to understand how to add decimals. Amanda Hallberg

#### Why do I keep thinking that today is Friday? I'm guess I'm ready to go shopping----This weekend I'm heading down to St.Louis for a Field Trial..if you know what that is then I'm super impressed. It has to do with retriever dogs. If you didn't know my boyfriend owns kennels at his house... Cold Tree Kennels to be exact. Anywho I went to my first class last night for my Masters program. I'm super excited to get started finished! I will end up graduating in May of 2014...that seems like light-years away!! This week we talked about number patterns and even and odd numbers! We did an activity that the kids LOVED! We took dry erase markers and made two big circles on our desk (be sure to collect the markers right after they draw..or they will keep drawing) We then counted out 9 markers. We divided numbers into the two groups to see if it was an even number or an odd number. Then we discussed how we could make each set even if it was odd and vice versa. (adding more or subtracting) I thought it was a great visual. I'm excited to see how the worksheet goes alone tomorrow. Click to Download Yesterday's focus was number patterns! I'm hoping to have my kids create more patterns on their own later this week. We also began talking more about word problems and the words that go in them. Many kids struggle when it comes to realizing rather to add or subtract during word problems. I've found some excellent resources to hopefully eliminate this problem that I know all my students could benefit from doing. Check them out! VIA This sort is included in the packet We glued this anchor chart into our math journals! After that we did this word sort by ourselves to check for understanding VIA VIA We also glued these in and discussed how to use them... I was surprised on how many kids didn't understand that moving down a row was adding ten! YIKES! We may need more practice:) Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway HERE! Happy Thursday!

#### It is official... I need to go to pinterest rehab! I have been stuck to pinterest for the past two days finding too many cute things to do next year in my classroom. The only problem is I don't know where to start! My to do list keeps growing with great ideas, in addition to trying to prep a nursery for our sweet baby boy. Next year our school is doing a reading block and a math block. I am excited about this and being able to integrate the other subjects into our reading and math times. I have always blended my curriculum and cannot wait to do more with thematic units. However in the past we were told to stay away from too many thematic units. It's funny to watch how the pendulum swings back and forth. When I started 6 years ago we used themes. Then after one or two years, we had to follow the basal with fidelity. Now we are back to using themes and only the "meaty" parts of the basal while using the common core standards. Our school went ahead and implemented the CCS this past year in Kindergarten, so I feel comfortable with the standards and am focusing on planning my new theme-filled year. We can finally bring the fun back to Kindergarten! Has this ever happened to anyone else?!?! So, back to the original tangent of being addicted to pinterest... I was looking up math ideas and want to implement daily math centers next year. I have always done math centers in my classroom, but only once or twice a week. It was difficult to fit them in with the SS, Science, and Writing blocks built into my schedule. Now that we are "allowed" to integrate these subjects, I want to do centers daily. I bought Debbie Diller's book Math Work Stations. I saw many pinterest ideas that referred back to this book. Has anyone read it? Was it as inspirational as everyone says? I also found a few blogs that had some good ideas. Dillo Digest Adventures in Teaching Mrs. Plant's Press Math Centers Now my brain is spinning on what to do and how to organize them. I hope the book will help me sort out my ideas. I am very lucky to have many different Lakeshore Math centers from grants I wrote on Donors Choose (if you haven't checked out that website, you must. It is a great way to get classroom supplies for free from kind strangers!). We must follow the order of our basal (Go Math) because of our report card requirements, so I'm tied down to what must be taught each nine weeks. I am more concerned with logistics. How to group the kids, how long to stay at the centers, keep the same center types all year or do random centers, etc. Has anyone implemented math centers daily in their classroom? If so, I'd love some pointers or even a link to a blog/website that has ideas. Thanks in advance for the help or suggestions! I love learning things from other teachers!

Here's a terrific post on a week's worth of graphing lessons. The only note I would make here is that the anchor chart has an inappropriate example of a line graph. Line graphs are designed to show change over time, not categorical data. Other than this error, you'll find lots of good stuff here.

#### During the week that we taught graphs, we chose to spend each day on a different type of graph. Below are the lessons we used for each day. Monday During the whole class lesson on Monday, students filled out their notebooks along with the anchor chart. Our focus on Monday was bar graphs but we filled out the complete anchor chart. CCSS.Math.Content.3.MD.B.3 Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets. Students were given an All About Me Quiz. Each day we focused on a different type of graph. We used the information from the quizzes to personalize the graphs for our classes on the anchor chart and for activities throughout the week. Tuesday Our focus was on creating and interpreting line plots. Students used the SmartBoard at the teacher station to create line plots for different items on the All About Me Quiz. We then asked students different questions about the line plots and they answered on their white boards. At the independent station students played a game called Roll the Dice Line Plot. Students rolled a dice 20 times and recorded their results on a line plot. Smartboard notebook used to graph class data Wednesday The objective was pictorial graphs for Wednesday. Students created graphs on the SmartBoard and played Roll the Dice Pictorial Graph. Thursday The goal for Thursday was line graphs. Friday We reviewed all the different types of graphs by looking at the class graphs we created on the SmartBoard. The played Roll the Dice at the game station and reviewed bar graphs. Smartboard notebook used to graph class data Students also completed an Explain Your Answer worksheet at the independent station.

Math activites is important because as they grow up math is going to be used. Learning it at a young age can increase how well they know it older.
