Math fun!

Hi to all! Just a quick post. I told the kids I would get some pictures up here tonight!

We have been working on our number sense in our math curriculum, Investigations. The students have been bringing home some worksheets to practice on at home and to play the game of "Compare" or in other words "War." Please use a deck of cards from home! If your family is in need of cards, please send a note or contact me and I will make sure you have some at home. 

Here students are playing a game of "Double Compare."They flip two cards and investigate to find out who has the greater sum!
Some friends are counting to double check their findings during "double compare!"

Above the children chose 4 random number cards (0-10). They built towers and ordered from least to greatest or greatest to least.

We enjoyed our stuffed animal day last week, too! Our class is really working hard to follow the Marion Way! The kids had a great time sharing their animals friends and reading to them during Read to Self time. 

Check back again at the end of the week for a weekly update! We have started Spelling and Guided Reading time. Check back for more information. As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
 Happy Monday!

Mrs. Hamilton
