Smart Board Concept of Number or Addition

10 Smart Board Files for Concept of Number or Addition!  Great for math centers or workstations.  Aligned with Common Core and easily differentiated.

These are the actual Smart Notebook files so you can edit them!

There are eleven pages for each file.  I require my students to show me 10 different ways to make the number that they are working on.  (i.e. 10 different ways to make 5)

Another way that you could use these files would be to have a child show you a way to make each number listed at the top (5-15).  This is why there are eleven pages.

Open the file that you would like to use.
Slide the box to highlight the number that you would like to work on.
Grab the shape that you would like to add to the scene.

Themes Include:

Christmas – scatter presents around the tree.

Easter – scatter Easter Eggs around the bunny.

Food – create a meal on the plate.

Halloween – add spiders to the spider web.

Ice Cream – build ice cream cones.

Pond – add frogs or ducks to the pond.

St. Patrick’s Day – scatter shamrocks or pots of gold around the teddy bear.

Summer – scatter buckets, shovels, beach balls, or crabs on the beach.

Valentine’s Day – scatter hearts around the teddy bear.

Winter – scatter mittens, hats, or cups of hot chocolate around the snowman.

Engage NY - Devil's Advocate

Engage NY Math is quickly becoming a hot topic across the country. NY Department of Education developed curriculum to support Common Core and published it online for free. Our district has adopted the math portion. I would like to play devil's advocate and see what everyone thinks about Engage. Pros:
~It is free online
~It dives deep into numbers, both composing and decomposing and makes our kiddos think differentlyCons:
~It is only available online which means everything must be printed, no materials can be purchased pre-made
~ Each lesson is an hour long of direct instruction
~ The first grade lessons include a lot of papers, typically three double sided pages each day if you do the homeworkQuestions:
~ Does it say anywhere that it is research based?
~ Why hasn't a publishing company picked it up? Post your thoughts in the comments.

5 Steps To Help You Integrate Art Into Your Classroom

Choose A Time
Choose which subject you would like to integrate art into and what day.  In my classroom, this is Math on Friday.  I am not a "crafty" teacher by nature.  My teaching partners are much better at including art projects into their plans.  I decided on Fridays, after our lesson we would do a math related craft instead of meeting with small groups.  Friday is an easy choice for me because it is jeans day, it's relaxed, and we are wore out from a busy week.

Create A Subject Overview
I created an outline of our math that includes the month and the topic for the week.  This way, I knew that I needed a place value craft for October and a shape craft for December.

Pinterest is your best friend!  I saved ideas that I found to a Pinterest board so that I could reference them later when I was ready to create or download if a template was available.  Think of a variety of terms, to search for and sometimes less specific is better.  Halloween Place Value Crafts m…
