Happy Monday!!! Why am I always most exhausted on Monday?!
I normally wait until Saturday to show off what we did in class during the week but today’s activity was such a huge success that I have to share it NOW!
This weekend while lesson planning, I was scouring Pinterest for a fun ten frame/counting activity. I ran across a pin for a living ten frame. The pin directed me to Chalk Talk and their idea for living ten frames. As soon as I saw the idea I knew that would be my Monday math kick off!
I used mustache (DUH!) duct tape to tape off a ten frame on our classroom floor. I kept it under the rug until math time. We talked about ten frames, what they were used for, how they helped us and then we talked about using our math counters on our ten frames. Then I ripped back the carpet and they were in awe. I asked what counters we had that were big enough and they couldn’t figure it out. I told them that we were going to use ourselves as the counters! Hello engaged and excited!
