Week 7: More or Less, facts of 3, counting and shapes

We are half way through the quarter and so things start moving a little faster to get everything in.  Here the children are just placing the ten frames in order from one to ten.  My higher students finished early, so I had them place them in order from 10 to one, and some even had a minute to play go fish with a friend.

I have not introduced BUMP this year, seems like we have been busy, but I just haven't worked this in. Well I did this week, and the kids loved it!  All they do is roll one or two die and cover that number.  This week is the first week I have used dotted die, I have been using the written number die for rolling and writing.  I placed the die in a little square container found at Dollar Tree.  I have a few friends that wanted to "make" the die say a number  they wanted.  This helped a little bit. (and it helped keep the die on the table)

Positional words game here, very simple but it needs to be adult led, so I had my assistant lead it when she could and a parent led it other days.
 I have several math games that are wonderful.  This is the last week I will allow the students to pick between what is available.  I have found a great little subitizing app I will have them stay on next week.

A shape game from Carson Dellosa.  Great for when a parent shows up.

More or less game.  You can read about this game here.  Simple to make, just a square of felt, tape down the middle, a wooden cube with the words more or less written on it, and two sticks of 10 unifix cubes, or snap cubes.

Illuminations Five frame has been the game this week on the computers.

Bowl Game can be found here.  This year I decided to start fact families early and with a small number.  So this week we did three and next week it will be four, so five will not be a foregin concept when the assessments are done.  This is a teacher led table and I use a white board to show the "equations".  Each time we take a turn to do this game, I ask the students to do it a different way than they did before.

I do have 8 activities this week, I only did six a day.  The bowl game I did only the last two day of the week, before I had introduced the bowl game so it could be a stand alone game.  The order of ten frames only lasted two day, and then the bump game came in its place.  Some activities get a little boring for the entire five days, so I try to switch it up a bit.  Enjoy!  Hope this was helpful!
