A peek into math time today...

Math time is always busy, active, and fun! Math stations allow students to work on many different skills during our hour-long math block. Students work in small groups, which allows for more individualized instruction. There are always one or two "independent stations," which is where children can choose games and other activities to practice various math skills. 

These telling time puzzles have been popular. Telling time to the hour, half-hour, and quarter hour are skills that are expected to be secure by the end of first grade.
We work on knowing math facts "in a snap" in many ways. This game has children match a math fact on one side of the egg to the correct sum on the other side of the egg. 
Students designed kites with 25 colored squares and are writing sentences that use fractions to describe how the kite is colored. (For example, the kite about is 16/25 green, 8/25 magenta, and 1/25 yellow.)
