We Love Books! Druscilla's Halloween



I discovered this book while browsing the E-Books our school has to offer.  A few pages later, I was hooked!  The vocabulary in here is fabulous!  Upper elementary teachers, this book has great examples of alliteration, onomatopoeia, etc.  Early childhood teachers, it's all about exposure!  Take a peek for your self.

This story is all about how witches started flying on brooms.


 Druscilla the witch, could not sneak around because her knees were so noisy.

 She tried to train a donkey to help her sneak around.
  

  She tried to ride in a wheelbarrow to sneak around.
 

 She tried to make wings to sneak around. 

Then, she had the great idea to cast a spell on her broomstick.

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.

Favorite Board Games For Math

I don't know about you, but I love board games!  I grew up playing cards and board games and building puzzles with my family, and those are some of my favorite memories.  You know that I also love technology, but sometimes, it's nice to unplug.  Here are a few of my favorite games to use in the classroom for math.  This list is constantly growing, so keep your eyes peeled for another post in the future.

Chutes & Ladders This is one of the first games I introduce in my classroom.  Kiddos love the idea of playing "games" at school.  Chutes and Ladders is setup like a hundreds chart and the perfect way to get kiddos familiar with the layout of the chart.  Students learn to take turns and ease into math centers in my room.
Connect Four This is a great game to build your math center routines and procedures.  Students are learning problems solving and creating strategies while cooperating with others.  To add a little more math to it, use a p…
