I am moving this week to more sets and numbers. We are still working on a number book in small groups in the morning, they are learning the poems and the correct way to write the number. I am down to only three children who do not recognize all their numbers, so it is time to move on to sets!
I posted alot of items in my last blog, some of which I am still introducing this week, so I only have a few things new for this week.
I found this cute game on Pinterest and the students did really well yesterday with this game.
O.K. I try to teach math one day a week or every two weeks, whole group. This gives me an opportunity to teach a new concept. I also use my Morning Meeting time to review various skills. Here all the children have a set of card like those below (I made them with index cards and rings- all found at Walmart) The children have the numbers 0-9 on their ring and I have a piano. I tap out three keys and the children are to show me their number card three. I continued this mixing the numbers up, sometimes fast and some slow. This is a great activity because the children really have to listen and the room is very quiet. :) Last week I did only this, now this week I hope to add manipulatives. The children will show me the number card and then they count out the number with the manipulative on their table.
