Today during our afternoon math time, the scholars paired up and played double compare. This is a great game to play at home. Scholars each chose two cards and then added them up. The player that had the greater total would collect all 4 cards. We have been incorporating many math terms, such as greater than, less than and equal.
As groups finished we started an independent activity call "add it up". When scholars are finished with their math jobs, they work to make as many different equations that they can. I am noticing what wonderful mathematicians I have in this classroom.
