Teaching math should be as easy as…a day at the beach!
It will be when you use these posters for mental math strategies: a Hundreds chart, Counting on, Doubles, Doubles+1, Make-a-ten, Compensation, Round & remember, 3 properties (associative, distributive and commutative) & Decomposing #s + bonus vocab cards. **This is truely a cure for the common core! This packet also includes "I can" posters for your focus wall.
**The hundreds chart is a fast and fun way to increase number sense with your students. Play "what's my number" and have students guess your number by asking questions like "Are you odd?" "Are you greater than 45?" This is a game that works for any age level. You will just need to model for the little ones how to ask the questions. A companion to this kit will be coming shortly with games to go with each strategy. You can find some all ready to go in Hullabaloo at the Zoo @ http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Place-Value-Review-Hullabaloo-at-the-Zoo
