I wish I knew the best way to explain my Math Stations. I've said it many times, I like it simple, clear and meaningful. So ... in a nutshell... here is how I run my math stations in my 2nd grade class. Each month I cover 12 CC standards. 4 from each domain: Base Ten Notation Fluency w/ Addition and Subtraction Measurement Geometry/Data This can be found on page 1 of my centers... below is March. Storing the completed set. The first year, I had the expense and lamination to cut... however, since then... it's been easy!! I use these fancy storage boxes (he! Each month has its own box. The bottom picture (of the post) shows what the inside of the fancy box looks like. 12 large baggies of math station task card, talk card, activity, manipulatives etc. I took pictures today of our last rotation in March. I have 12 pairs of kids working around the room... completing their activity in the box, completing their workbook and then playing a math facts game board until the timer goes off. page 2... box 2

Les centres mathématiques Debbie Diller préconnise un temps de discussion et d'objectivation à la fin d'une période de centre mathématiques, cela correspond à ce que l'on appelait la pause méthodologique pendant mon passage à l'IUFM. Pas plus de 5 minutes, seulement quelques élèves. Quelques suggestions de questions pour guider la réflexion des élèves : * Qu'est-ce que j'ai fait aujourd'hui en centre de mathématiques ? * Qu'est-ce-que j'ai fait pour résoudre un problème aujourd'ui , * Comment ai-je représenté ou noté ce que j'ai appris ? *.... (9 autres propositions de questions dans le livre) Ensuite il y a des chapitres qui se centrent sur : - les centres d'apprentissage du concept du nombre - les centres d'addition et de soustraction - Les centres de numération - les centres de géométrie - les centres de mesure - 60 pages de fiches photocopiables pour les centres - 1 glossaire illustré qui répertorie du matériel matémathiques et explique succintement son utilité (36 "objets" différents) Quelques images :

The First Grade Parade I’ve been a little MIA lately. In all honesty, I’ve had the blogging “blahs”. Not a whole lot of motivation to sit down and post anything. …sanitzed my hands…and the hands of 17 littles…NO LESS than 2,347 times. …successfully cleaned up a few cases of the pukies {talk about gag reflex} …counted 6 kids absent on Friday & Monday…and sent two pukies home today. …cloroxed {yes, it’s a verb ;)} the desks NO LESS than 100,000 times. …immediately came home from school 4 days in a row, stripped off my clothes, threw them in the washer, and hightailed it to take the HOTTEST showers before picking up my boys from the sitter. Did I mention that our sweet little school is experiencing the CRAZIEST bout of sickness EVER?!?! Anyway, we’ve been *trying* to keep busy learning and here’s a little activity I introduced at the beginning of the week. I cut out lots of different feet programmed with /oo/ words. Hoping to get my blogging motivation back again soon :) I have lots of fun things to share!!

Math Coach's Corner Centre de résolution de problème guidé Ma collègue et moi avions commencé à réfléchir à la mise en place d'un centre de résolution de problème guidé afin d'accompagner les élèves et de les soutenir dans leur apprentissage de la démarche de résolution ainsi que dans la découverte de nouvelles stratégies. J'ai remis la main sur un document qui s'intitule "Vers une démarche stratégique" , ou communément appelé "Fine mouche", conçu pour chaque niveau d'enseignement. Ce document de travail explique clairement les étapes de la démarche de résolution à l'aide de trois personnages: 1- le détective qui tente de bien comprendre le sens du problème et qui est à la recheche d'indice pouvant l'aider à résoudre le problème. 2- le menuisier, lui, choisit les bonnes stratégies qui l'aideront à construire sa démarche. 3- le vérificateur (j'utiliserai le juge) s'assure de la validité de la réponse. Ce document propose aussi des problèmes regroupés selon les différentes stratégies proposée afin d'amener les élèves à les mettre en pratique.

My First Award and Freebie! It has been nice enough here to leave the windows open all night. For Indiana in March... it just feels strange, but I am loving it! Here's hoping it stays nice through my birthday at the end of the month! I was so, so pleasantly surprised a couple of days ago! I have really enjoyed reading her cute 4th grade blog, and I would really recommend you check it out! I also had the chance to join Kindergarten Lifestyle's linky party for K-2 blogs, and I have found so many great newbie blogs! Finally, I wanted to share my first file with you. At my student teaching school, we had a program called Mountain Math, which was great for reviewing TONS of concepts... but unfortunately, it's a program that's a little out of my price range, and required me to keep updating the bulletin board. Instead, I use what I call My Magic Number.

That's So Second Grade!: Daily 5 Math & a FREEBIE! After jumping head first into Daily 5 for my literacy time at the start of school, I decided I would take the plunge with math as well. Using Daily 5 for my reading and writing time has had it's kinks, but has been the very best thing I could have done to create a classroom culture grounded in literacy and reading. Until I starting using the Daily 5 structure for my math time about two weeks, my math block went a little like this...I would teach a WHOLE GROUP LESSON or activity for about 20-25 minutes. Then students would all complete the same worksheet or activity at the same time and when they were finished they would go to either me or my assistant and have their work checked. If they needed to correct any, they would go do so. If they got them all correct, they would go do an early finisher activity that was not necessarily related to the concept being practiced at the moment. I use the schedule above most days, unless I am introducing a brand new unit.

Ateliers mathématiques (numération et calcul) Cela fait un petit moment que je réfléchis à la façon dont je pourrais mettre en place dans ma classe un temps d'ateliers autour de jeux mathématiques. Je voudrais mettre en place à la rentrée de septembre un créneau en tout début d'après-midi (30mn d'abord jusqu'à 45mn en fin d'année) afin de proposer à mes élèves des jeux de numération et de calculs et quelques ateliers inspirés de la méthode Montessori. J'ajouterai donc dans cet article les jeux au fur et à mesure de leur réalisation et des choix que je ferai. les cartes de numération Les élèves les superposent pour créer un nombre. Ils peuvent ensuite construire le nombre avec le matériel Base 10, des cartes milliers, centaines, dizaines et unités ou de la monnaie. Il y a 2 versions: l'une en couleur (le code de couleur correspond au fichier: Pour comprendre les maths) et l'autre à imprimer sur du papier de couleur le jeu de la marchande, un classique! les logicos l'escalier des nombres le jeu du serpent C'est une idée trouvée sur Pinterest.

Oh My Little Classity Class Ummmm. . .yeah, needing some practice with basic addition facts in my classroom. Remember how I said my littles were rock stars at addition?! I might have been confused. So. . .there will be MUCH practice coming their way this week. We're playing FAST FACT (an awesome game using cards - face cards removed - where the dealer places 2 cards on the table and the first student to correctly give the sum (because we're adding) gets those cards - winner is the player with the most cards when the dealer has no more cards). We're playing MAKE TEN (using cards again - face cards and TENS removed - dealer lays ten cards on the table (face up) - players must say the parts of 10 - ie: 6+4=10 - student gets the set of 10 that they say - dealer fills the spaces created from those cards with cards from the deck - winner is the player with the most cards when the dealer has no more cards). We're practicing our 3 addend addition strategies using the work mats I shared on Monday and Tuesday. Enjoy. :)

5 au quotidien en math Réflexions en cours... Je n'ai pas encore implanté les 5 au quotidien et la méthode CAFÉ que je rêve déjà de l'implanter pour les mathématiques. En lisant à droite et à gauche, j'ai lu à quelques endroits les 5 "ateliers" de base en mathématique selon les auteurs des 5 au quotidien. Je ne suis pas certaine que cela corresponde à ce que j'ai besoin. 1. En continuant mes recherches, je suis tombé sur un concept bien sympathique qu'est le B.U.I.L.D B pour Buddy Games (Jeux entre amis)U pour Using manipulatives (utiliser le matériel de manipulation)I pour Independant reading/work (lire des livres de mathématique)L pour Learning about numbers (apprendre les nombres)D pour Doing math (faire des maths) Mais, encore une fois, je ne suis pasconvaincue que c'est vraiment ces composantes que j'ai envie de mettre en place dans ma classe. Puis, je suis tombée sur ces sites qui m'ont amené un peu plus loin dans ma réflexion et qui correspond davantage à ce que je cherche à implanter dans ma classe.

Counting We have had a busy month learning all about numbers, shapes, and coins! Most of The Marchese Clowns can... We practice math all day....starting with the calendar! During our "Math Lesson" time we also have Math Stations...t he students love Math Stations! Look what we have been doing the last few weeks! We can count objects to 20....This is a "large tower" with than 20. We are counting by 5s and 10s to 100...our sock clothesline goes to 27 so far... This game is called Beat you to 20. The students love to compare numbers... the student with the highest numbered card gets to keep the cards. A few of our SHAPE ROBOTS! and we know all the shapes we used to make them! Can you find a rhombus? Can you find a trapezoid or a hexagon? More shape fun with the polydrons..... We have just started learning about money. This poem helps us remember how much each coin is worth... This game is very popular in Math Stations....we have learned to trade five pennies for a nickel! Beat you to 15 cents!

Number Frames Overview Number Frames help students structure numbers to five, ten, twenty, and one hundred. Students use the frames to count, represent, compare, and compute with numbers in a particular range. The frames help students see quantities as equal groups of other quantities and in relation to benchmark quantities. This helps primary students move away from one-by-one counting toward more efficient ways of counting and computing. As students advance, custom frames can be constructed to help visualize factors, products, fractional parts and more.

Math Games Galore Ever wonder what to do with the kids who always finish early?? Well, during math time, my students get to play math games. When they finish their independent work, I look over their papers to check for understanding. When I know they've got it, I assign them a partner, and they play math games. I use a pocket chart that has 10 slots (I think it was originally made to hold cd's). Click on the pictures below to view/save the game directions. Here are the cards that I use, too. And that's it!
