Winter Math

Snowy weather has put students in room 116 in the seasonal spirit. Take a stop by to snuggle up to the fire with a good book or an educational iPad app. We've changed over our high-five turkeys and have made snowmen to help us count by twos. 1st graders brought in some very creative eyes to help us skip count by twos. 

This month in math we have been focusing on numbers eleven through twenty.  1st graders have been practicing counting, comparing and ordering these numbers.  As a class, we made a life size number pattern and practiced comparing numbers using tens and ones pieces. 
To keep things festive, 1st graders made number dreidels to show off their knowledge of numbers from 11 to 20.  Students practiced using ten frames, grouping by tens, number sentences, tally marks and number words to represent these numbers.
Visit spelling city to practice spelling and reading number words from 11-20.
