Math: A Time of Choices AND Learning
Today I introduced our Math Choice time and all that is incorporated with that. The students had such a great time!! They really enjoyed playing some of the activities that we have available. I spent a lot of time over the summer researching some new and fun things that the kids can do to not only have fun, but also incorporate some of those basic math practices that we are working on during this early part of the year. They really seem to love the GeoBoards, Wrap-Ups, and Make 7 games that were just added, along with some old staples such as our Addition and Subtraction Bingo, calculators, and Geoblocks. I really loved hearing some of the conversations that occured today! What wonderful thinkers we have!
