Math Work in Our Green Outfits

Homecoming week has been fun! Today we wore our class color-green! Tomorrow is orange and black day! We will be having a pep rally in the morning and going to the parade in town in the afternoon. I will have a guest teacher until noon. Here we are being silly!

Today we also got introduced to a new math tool-the rekenrek! This tool will help us understand numbers better. Please ask your student about them. Mrs. Backey came in to team teach with me. We will be  using the rekenrek to discover partners (addends) of the numbers 7, 8, 9 and 10, as well as later in the year for more advanced addition and subtraction strategies.
