Lesson Plan for Student Road Trip Project: End of Year Math Project

 on April 22, 2014

I first heard of this awesome project a few years ago when my oldest daughter was in Mrs. Matthew's 5th grade class.  She came home and told me, "I am the driver for our trip!"


Confusion written on my face, I wondered if I needed to call the school and find out what was happening over there!

LadyBug Counters

 on April 14, 2014

Teacher's never cease to amaze me! There is no limit to how hard a teacher will work to make learning fun!

I recently visited a classroom where the students were working on composing and decomposing numbers from 1 to 10.

This happens in kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms all over the country, right? No big deal.

But these kids weren't just counting with boring old counters on boring white ten frames!

One Hundred Ways to Get to 100

One Hundred Ways to Get to 100 is an EXCELLENT book for your math library!

Written by Jerry Pallotta, this book was created for preschool through second grade.

Starting off with simple counting by ones, this book illustrates with pictures the "zillions" of ways that you can make 100.

Students practice counting by ones, 2's, 10's, 20's, and so on to reach 100.

One Tiger Growls by Ginger Wadsworth is an excellent counting book for the animal lovers in your classroom.

Counting from 1 to 20, Wadsworth's book is full of great animal pictures, information about tigers, hippos, owls, gorillas and much more!

From the sounds they make, to their habits and habitats, this book will have your students counting and reading this book again and again.

This is a cute way to practice addition and subtraction with your students or kids at home!

Using sticky notes or number cards, write out a math problem. Using half of a plastic Easter egg, hide the correct number of jelly beans under the number they are solving.

Have the students count out the jelly beans for each number that is shown. 

Then have them try to figure out how many jelly beans are hidden under the egg.
