We are continuing to have FUN with math! Last week the kiddos were “Five Little Pumpkins” and this week they are having FUN pretending to be the leaves falling off the tree and blowing around. All sorts of problems were posed. After whole group instruction where we acted out problems, we moved into our small group instruction where I could use the problem-solving mats and address each group at their level of instruction.
As you can see from the picture, this child was ready to write the math sentence. (I only have one picture to share because my camera battery died.) Other children just made up stories and counted to check their answers and another group made up their stories and I wrote the sentences for them.
At the end of the week, this will be placed in the Math Center for children to complete independently. The pumpkin problem-solving mats are there now from last week.
If you missed it, click here for your FREE sample of these storytelling necklaces. The sample is actually of the leaves which we started today.
Enjoy and see you soon!!
