**PEDAGOGY**

One of the greatest challenges we face as teachers is finding enough time for all the instruction we need to fit in. Often times, we feel there is a need to hurry on to the next topic once we see students have reached their learning goal. Unfortunately this (seemingly relentless) need to move on robs many learners of their (infinitely more important) need to go back and review concepts. We learn quickly that in order to make room for the spiral review students need, we need to hit the ground running each morning when they arrive in the classroom.

Looking for the perfect tool to build or review second and third grade math understanding? Discovered your students aren’t retaining the skills introduced during your math units? Searching for a low-prep, engaging routine that boosts your students’ math skills? The four sets of reusable Number of the Day Binder pages in this bundle are a perfect way to address your needs.

***************************************************************************

**SETTING UP TO SAVE TIME**

The pages of these binders are designed to be printed once, inserted into page protectors and stored in ½ binders for daily use throughout the school year. Setting up one binder for each student in this way makes it easy for your students to use white board markers to complete their activities, and erase for a fresh start with a new number the next day.

A digital Google Slides version of this resources is also included so you can easily assign this resource to students via Google Classroom.

**DAILY NUMBER OF THE DAY MORNING WORK ROUTINE**

The routine I’ve used with my second and third graders is as follows. This routine takes about 15 minutes in my classroom, and is completed simultaneously with attendance, homework collection, and any necessary morning check-ins. Please keep in mind, this resource makes it easy for your revise the recommended routine to fit the unique needs of your classroom.

★ Teacher selects a new number between 0-100 each day

★ Students complete multiple pages in their binder (3-4 pages is recommended)

★ After students complete their assigned pages, they tap their head silently to signal they are done

★ Teacher stops by to check binder pages

★ Teacher signals student to tuck their binder away after work has been checked

★ Teacher notes mentally, or in writing which students need follow up instruction related to their place value practice

★ Teacher follows up on misconceptions and mistakes as needed during guided math

***************************************************************************

**BOOSTING MATH RIGOR**

When students can count on a consistent format for their spiral review, they can focus more brain power on strengthening their math understanding. The activities in this binder reinforce the variety of math modeling approaches, which transfer to solving more complex math problems in second & third grade, and beyond. The format of each page requires students to manipulate and model today’s number in a variety of ways, further deepening place value understanding.

***************************************************************************

**MATH SCAFFOLDING & MATH DIFFERENTIATION MADE EASY**

Introducing each number of the day binder page through an interactive modeling lesson is recommended. First, have students watch and listen as you work through the page with a sample number. Then, display a new number and work through the page together, with your binder on display, and theirs on their lap or desk.

The following day, you can decide if another guided practice session is needed, or if you will walk the room as students work through their page independently. The consistent format of these reusable pages quickly builds students’ confidence with tackling a new number each day.

With several pages to pick from, students who demonstrate mastery of concepts can move on to more advanced/new pages as needed. You can also reduce or increase the number of pages a student completes each day without the need for additional prep work.
