Math Journal: "Tools for your Toolbox"

I have been asked time and time again about math journals… How do you use them? What is the most effective way to structure them? Can First Graders really use them as a tool? How do you not get overwhelmed when using them?? The great thing about math journals is that there is not just one way to use them… they can be modified to fit your style and organizational preferences. A few summers ago, I was lucky enough to attend the National Singapore Conference in Las Vegas. One of the sessions I…

Our Fun Homeschool: Number Line Jumping--Great for teaching counting on, addition and subtraction and greater than/less than

Number Line Jumping

This is a fun way to add and subtract simple numbers on a number line. This idea originated from the activity that goes with Hap Palmer's "Jumping to Add and Subtract" song (see below).

Use yarn or electric tape to create the number line, and place the number cards or plates about 18 to 24 inches apart on the number line. To add, have the child stand on the number 2 or 3. Then add a…

Using a Meter Stick as a Number Line Part 2

Here is a post where I explain how I teach placing fractions and decimals on a meter stick number line. For awhile, I had the meter sticks out and several sets of clothespins for students to practice ordering fractions and finding equivalent decimals. Then I realized what other math concepts I could teach with this model. I know I am not the only fourth grade teacher who has students who struggle with rounding. I wrote this post about rounding whole numbers with a 100s chart and it is one of…
