This week we are starting to learn about math stations. Today the students worked with Mrs. Backey and Ms. Hopp on tangrams. Tangrams are a Chinese puzzle consisting of seven pieces that can make a variety of shapes. We read the book Grandfather Tang's Story , made our own paper tangrams and worked together to create some puzzles. Later this week we will also learn about "math boxes" and a math game. These activities will also become math stations. The purpose of math stations is to give the students meaningful work while the teacher works with small groups of students to meet students' individual needs better. Here's some pictures!
