Back To School Math Centers



Well, I have been on the computer for almost 12 hours straight, my hand is fried and my wrist is swollen from clicking away.  The good news is I have uploaded 18 Back To School Math Centers!  Check them out!  Let me know what you think.  I am looking for suggestions of new things to make.  What are there not many of?  What type of games/activites would you like to see?

On a side note, I would love to add pictures of my room, but I can't.  They are waxing our floors, with supposedly 10 layers of wax!  They are off limits for a while.  Luckily, I was able to go in last week and make several thousand copies for the year, so I have stapling to keep me busy.  As soon as I can get in my room though I will snap some photos.  They will only be cell phone photos though because I am trying to save up my TPT and Teacher's Notebook money for a fancy camera.  I love photography and steal borrow my mom's camera whenever I can.  It's time for one of my own though. :-)

    1. Thank you heather! Yes, everything is in my TPT store and Teacher's Notebook. Do you know how to get the button for Teacher's Notebook like I have for TPT? I looked around a little, but couldn't find it.

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
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…
