If your like me, I get tired of my kids working on one or two skills at a given time. The kids get tired of doing the same thing all day too: whole group, small group, math stations, independent practice, math homework. Everything is the same. So I did something about it. I came up with an acronym that allows students to rotate through the different domains of 1st grade math all year! This way your kids can begin working on games and skills that they will learn later. Introducing basic games and activities ahead of time will create better understanding and easier transition to something new when the time comes. It’s simple:
N: Numbers and Operations in Base Ten
O: Operations and Algebraic Thinking
M: Measurement and Data
E: Extra Practice
Each child works on each station every week. They are consistently working on all the domain of our math curriculum throughout the entire year! :)
Though I teach first grade... 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades have the same four domains. So this product could be used up until 5th grade if needed!
