Analyzing Students Thinking Analyzing Students’ Thinking In this chapter, we examine the type of professional development experience in which teachers analyze student thinking as revealed in students’ written assignments, think-aloud problem-solving tasks, class discussions and clinical interviews. Within this kind of professional development sessions, teachers learn to observe various types of student mathematical activity and to interpret what they observe, with the ultimate goal of enhancing their students’ learning opportunities. Theoretical rationale and empirical support In Chapter 1, we discussed the research evidence that supports teachers learning about students’ mathematical thinking. Professional development that helps teachers analyze students’ mathematical work is a logical vehicle to achieve these goals. Research shows that analyzing student thinking can promote instructional practices that result in higher student achievement. This illustration depicts a typical 2-hour-long session in a CGI program.

Math Word Problems [Grade 1] [Grade 2] [Grade 3] [Grade 4] [Grade 5] Introduction: The Word Problems are listed by grade and, within each grade, by theme. I always find that providing a seasonal worksheet helps keep my daughter excited about doing her work. The grade levels are a guideline -- please use your judgment based on your child's ability and eagerness (my eldest daughter always used a grade below whereas my younger daughter seems to be a grade or two above -- go figure). All word problems are dynamic (in other words, they regenerate a new problem each time you open them or click refresh on your browser). With my eldest daughter, once I realized how much she struggled with math when it wasn't written down in a nice neat equation, I often walked through a math problem with her (doing most of the work myself) and then provided her a few regenerations of the same problem with different numbers for her to do solo.

Phonics Free printable worksheets © Contributed by Leanne Guenther There are differences in opinion about whether using phonics is useful in teaching children to read. My personal opinion is that everyone learns differently -- try a variety of things with your kids until you find what works for them. My oldest daughter just sort of magically read books -- natural ability and lots of family reading time were the causes I think -- she didn't often sound out words or enjoy playing word games. My younger daughter was very keen on phonics lessons and constantly asked to play rhyming word games and activities. Word families really appealed to her and to this day (grade 6) she enjoys word based "puzzles" like word searches and crosswords (my eldest daughter would rather play soccer *grin*). When approaching word families, I like to learn them in sets that have some commonality (for example, short a sounds or long e sounds). Anyways, here are the Word Family sets as I would suggest combining them.
Math Journals Lori Jane Dowell Hantelmann, Elementary Math Specialist Regina Public Schools, SK Canada My teaching philosophy has changed significantly since I began teaching in 1990. My students sit at tables and mathematical concepts are taught in a problem-solving context instead of being presented in isolation through discrete workbook pages. One change in my teaching is due to the classroom research into mathematics journals I completed recently for my Masters of Education. In past years, when attempting to have children write in a mathematics journal, I would read: "This was easy. What is a math journal? My students write in a notebook to answer open-ended questions using numbers, symbols, pictures and words, and their writing can best be described as written conversations. What did I learn about using math journals? My classroom research on mathematics journals led me to recognize four important steps needed to help students write reflectively about mathematics. I can think of more answers.
Popplet and Pizza So how does a pizza and attacking multi-syllabic words go together you are wondering? You don't eat a whole pizza at once, in one bite and if you don't know a long word (multi-syllabic word) you don't try to read the whole thing at once. You break it down (slice it up like a pizza) and read it (eat it) bite by bite! It's gotta be in kid language so they get it! :) My groups in grades 1-3 need a lot of practice with breaking words into syllables to try to read them. The kids are interested in anything done on the iPads, of course. With this app, you can create as many Popplets, or boxes, as you need. My first grade groups needed to go back and do some more work on story events. Students did a quick sketch in each box to represent what they would write about on their B-M-E page. I can see we will be using Popplet a lot!
