Kindergarten- We worked on one to one correspondence with putting cubes in a 5 frame and we practiced writing the numerals. We had a number talk based on the number 6 with dot patterns. . For problem solving we completed a pattern. We practiced counting to 100 while doing some brain based exercises.
1st Grade- We did a number talk based on the number 6 on ten-frames. We solved an addition word problem using Bar Model Drawing. We did a Brain Gym activity where we practiced telling time to the half hour while incorporating some exercise. Students practice representing 3 in many different ways.
2nd & 3rd Grades- We looked at words that mean zero(nothing, empty, etc.) that might be in a word problem instead of the number 0. We looked at sample story problems where you either add a number to nothing or add nothing to a number. Students worked with a partner to create their own story problem using information given to them on a card.
4th & 5th Grades- We looked at words that man multiply by 2 in a word problem (double, pairs, couples, etc.). We looked at some real life story problems where you would multiply by 2. Students worked with a partner to create their own story problem using information given to them on a card.
