I’m Baaaaack

As Jay-Z would say, “Can I get a what, what?”
Happy Sunday to all! I’m so glad to be back among the blogging.
Let’s get right to it. We have been working on two digit addition and I decided this year I wanted my students to really understand what the 2 in 23 means. So before I wrote the all to familiar two digit addition sentence:

We did a lot of this:

I started making these Number Talk papers the second month of school. These papers do not take the place of our official daily Number Talk. You can read about that here.
The format is basically the same each week, and I can add or take out any skill I want to. It’s like my own customized spiral review. They work on this as soon as they are unpacked. Then they work on our daily story problem. Here are few of our February ones.

So on Monday we will start to look at the addition sentence and I whipped up this flip chart. It’s plain and not at all do-dadded up. I’ll explain. Because of copyright issues with clipart and flipcharts I decided to keep it clipart free, because for those of you who use Active Inspire software, you can click on the picture and download your own for free from my TpT store. And after you download you can always add your own clip art to fancy it up.
Note:  If you don’t have the particular font (Wish I Were Taller)  installed on your computer, then you can select the text and change it to a font you do have.

Here is a picture of a slide from our monthly calendar on the Promethean board. We always have a number of the day and my students have to find one more, one less, ten more and ten less. I added two more and two less this month. They are catching on and last week one of our math stations involved this skill.

Click on the picture if you’d like your own copy of the math station. I don’t have a recording sheet, they wrote the answers in their math journals and I did a quick check of the answers.

Last Week:
I don’t have lots of pictures to share, but here are a few of math stations.

  6. Perfect timing! We're starting tens and ones this week. Last summer, someone blogged about using craft sticks with 10 lima beans glued onto them to represent the tens place and single beans to represent the ones place. I can finally bring them out along with your ideas! Thanks for sharing your great ideas! You rock!

  7. Arithmetic Village has a cool way to learn double digits! They use jewels, golden sacks and treasure chests. (sacks hold 10 jewels and treasure chests hold ten sacks.)

  32. Wow. Can I just say amazing! You have been busy creating this stuff! Thanks for all freebies. I can really use the ten more, ten less etc. Seems like such an easy concept...but not for my kiddos.
    They are beginning to get the hang of it.
    Thanks for all your hard work.
