Only a few weeks into school, and we have already learned so much. In Math we have been working on counting, writing, and identifying numbers 1-20.
We started with Ms. Brierton telling the students a number. They would then have to listen and create that number on a tens frame with cubes. We then moved to Ms. Brierton writing the number on the board. The students had to read the number off the board and create it with cubes on their ten frame. Last, the students worked with their table groups to roll two dice. They had to add up the dots on the dice and then place that many cubes on their ten frame.
We then practiced how to write numbers 1-10 on our desks with dry erase markers. The kids thought this was the coolest thing. Ms. Brierton would write a number on the board- showing exactly how to write it. Then the kids would practice themselves, and would even help their table mates if someone was confused. By the end of the year, students will need to be able to identify numbers 1-20 and count to 100. You can practice these at home as well :)
