I have been thinking a lot about Back to School. I know, I know! But, we all do it! Our vacation is still a couple of weeks away so I'm still thinking about school.
Anyway, I've added two new things to my TpT store that I am so excited about! The first product is a resource to use for your Math Talk. It is a set of sentence stems that can be used to guide your math discussions. Common Core demands that we have these math discussions with our students.
Before I got my masters degree last year in math education, I taught the skill and if they got it right - Whoo-hoo! Well, that's what I thought anyway, but through my program, I learned so much about what my students were thinking. I learned that they should discuss and defend their solutions! Wow, this was just in time for Common Core! I have really felt a little ahead of the game in my math instruction! Ha! Is that even possible in a teacher's world???
This is the first product:
I'm really excited about these because they can lead to such great math discussions and you can really understand what your students are thinking about their math and clear up any misconceptions if they happen to have any!
As I said earlier, I am already thinking about Back to School so I decided to revamp some of my beginning of the year math centers. This is my first time putting them on TpT. There are 11 different centers ranging in skills from ordering numbers, time, money, math facts, among others. Each center has a direction page with cards and/or a recording sheet. I hope you'll check them out!
Oh! If you go to the page and click on PREVIEW, you can snatch a little FREEBIE! Whoo-hoo!!
Now, I'm off to enjoy the rest of this evening!
Till next time...
