I put a little twist on it because we use Thinking Maps and are working towards turning those things into writing. I told my kiddos they had to come up with at least 5 numbers that tell me something about them......maybe how many are in their family, how many sisters or brothers, pets, birthdays.....you get the idea. The possibilities are endless. Then they made bubble maps with those and next to each bubble, had to write a short little blurb (yep, I said it) about that number.
Next they took their bubble map and wrote a short paragraph with a little more detail, about themselves.....
All About Me in Numbers:D
This student really thought outside the box and asked if her soccer number counted.....YEP:) So cool how they start to see how numbers relate to them ALL the time if they only look around:)
I have started Math Workshop.....
I wish I could say it is all rainbows and bubbles, but so far it isn't. It's not bad......I'm just not feeling super great about it. I'm hoping it's because of the newness and things will start to flow more smoothly soon. My biggest concern is that I feel rushed.....like SUPER rushed.....like will I fit it all in rushed!!! Any words of wisdom or encouragement from anyone who has done this would be GREATLY appreciated!!
On a side note, since I posted this pic:
I have had a few ask if this is/or will be in my store. It's my Morning Math Meeting. I would like to add a few more things to it and then I will post it in my stores:) This part of our Math is going AWESOME!!!! I really think it's super helpful and just a few minutes every morning:) The kiddos love it!
As, once again, I haven't started my Monday Made It.....I now am watching the TV wondering where that swirly guy named Isaac is heading. Right now we are in the cone. For those of you who do not live in Florida, the cone is not a fun place to live.....lots of nervous, stressful days as we watch and wait. So that's what I will be doing the next few days....watching and waiting and hoping it just falls apart:))
A girl can dream, right?? Happy Thursday!!
