I have spent the last few weeks in math teaching number sense. The children have learned about tally marks, even and odd, greater than/less than, and using the number line and hundreds chart as tools. We have also just started addition strategies (+0, +1, and doubles). Each week we continue to work in our math notebook practicing graphing, ways to make a number, problem solving, and estimation. And, can I tell you my kids have gotten TONS better at estimating. Problem solving-- well, that's still a work in progress :)
Below are some of the resources that I have used for either math tubs or the math notebook recently. Click on the pictures to download.

|A class graph for the math notebook. We do the graph together as a class. I go around the room and allow each child to answer the question. For this graph, the children colored in the fruit pictures as we we polled each child.|

I hope you enjoy the free downloads. I'm going to try and get back into the blogging groove.
