Product Description
This a beginning of the year writing activity is designed to give teachers insight into their students’ feelings and experiences about math.


The purpose is to remind students that quantifying object comes very naturally to all people. At an early age we start counting our possessions. Even preschoolers can tell you how old they are, how many brothers/sisters they have, and are aware of sharing and fairness (division).

Students begin thinking of math as what happens in the classroom with little relevance to their lives. They forget their primal math experience, like counting which is experiential and not formal math instruction.

This activity is meant to have students take a look at their own math history and how far they have come.
