Ms. Sarah’s kindergarten class had an Easter party – and worked on counting with tens and ones while having a lot of fun!
The students rotated centers involving tens and ones math while using chocolate eggs, painting Easter eggs, and creating some great Spring animal crafts!
Ms. Sarah printed out “10 frames”, and each student received two. With a pile of ten numbers, the kids got to draw a card and make the number with chocolate eggs in their ten frames, and this went along with EngageNY lessons the class was learning.
Ms. Sarah says her students like to learn and explore through activities that keep them engaged.
Ms. Sarah’s kindergarten class is hard at work building number sentences!
Students found a variety of manipulatives to use in order to build and solve these math problems.
Below, the engaged students are using tongue depressors with dots to make their number sentences visible and even more exciting.
Take a look at some insightful second grade answers as to why they chose to solve a three-digit addition problem using the strategy they did.
Most students in this class chose to solve the given math problem using the “vertical way” while some chose the use mental math.
Ms. Shannon’s third grade class is having a fun time while they practice measuring and rounding in math.
During the lesson, students demonstrated the two skills through a variety of activities. They worked in small groups and were asked to measure different items with several measurement units. Students used a scale to measure bags of seeds in grams; beakers to measure liquid in milliliters; and rulers to measure the length of items – such as a pencil, piece of paper, desk and their shoes – in inches. The kids also answered questions about telling time.
Once all of the measurements were complete, students rounded their answers to the nearest ten.
Ms. Shannon says that her students had fun and learned a lot!
