Why I NOW Love Teaching Math: Setting up Math Rotations

If you know me, you know I am in loooove with Daily 5! Ever since incorporating it into my classroom last year, I have loved seeing the variety of skills and strategies my students are working on each and every day. I also love that the segments are short, so we all stay motivated and the energy for learning stays high. I have been wanting to redo how I teach math for a while. As a student, I truly adore mathematics, but as a teacher, I was getting bored. Our district was looking into…

Equal Shmequal!

Hello Everyone!! If you are working on fractions, you have to read this book! Equal Shmequal by Virginia Kroll is a perfect book to introduce kids to the concepts of equal and unequal, symmetry, same, congruent, etc. This week I used this darling book to introduce our fractions unit. Today we worked hard on the symmetry aspect of equal and unequal. In first grade, symmetry is an important mathematical concept that actually serves as a jumping off point for many different mathematical…

Duck? Rabbit? Oooh, I Have an Opinion! *FREEBIE!

Well, as the saying goes, opinions are like....well, you know,and EVERYONE has one. Everyone except first graders, that is. Okay, okay, they have opinions & lots of them, but mine seem to have a hard time distinguishing opinion from fact. I know a lot of grown ups that only know facts, as their opinions are fact for sure (ahem), but my little ones seem to have the same problem. We have been working on this for a while, and I still had some that just couldn't quite get it. Then, in stepped my…
