B.U.I.L.D. Math Skills

In Math everyday we complete our calendar routine and have a whole or small group lesson. Starting this week my class will start BUILD.

BUILD stands for:
B=Buddy Games  (Students played Spin A Number or Coin Matching Games)
U=Using iPads  (Students used IXL Math App)
I=Independent Work  (Students worked on Counting Flags with beads)
L=Learning about numbers  (Students worked on traced numbers and made numbers with Wiki Sticks)
D=Doing Math with Mrs. Wolf  (Students worked on shapes and counting backwards.)

Each day, for about 20 minutes (or more) we will split into small groups for additional math time. During this time I am able to focus on the specific math skills that each group needs. Sometimes this means extra practice on skills already taught and other times it means enrichment of the skills they already possess.

Ask your child about what they did for BUILD today:)

Tricky Teens!

Funny that I'm posting about the tricky teens because currently I have 4 tweens/teen-agers and they sure can be tricky... But that's not what I'm talking about for Kindergarten! We are working on recognizing our teen numbers since most of us already have 0-10.  This song was recommended to me by Mrs. Rehder a year or two ago and all of my students absolutely LOVE IT!  Watch out, it's a catchy tune.
