Okay....I am so embarrassed that I haven't blogged in so long. I honestly have a mile long list of great ideas and some pictures to share but haven't had the energy to get them on here. I'm sure none of you know what that's like huh?
So, tonight I stopped feeling sorry for myself for a moment and created a quick little freebie for those that teach 3rd and possibly 4th grade. My class has working on a variety of strategies for solving word problems. However, I keep finding that when they are asked to pick out an equation that helps them to solve these problems they get confused....even though they just worked it out and actually showed the same equation themselves. It's like there is just a mental block. So, to help I created a fun "Fall" themed cut and paste. It's short...yes...I meant it to be short assessment/activity.
I know...I know...I know...Common Core isn't a cut and paste kind of thing. This is not meant to be a long drawn out activity...just a quick peek into what they recognize as correct.
I didn't want it to be too easy so I added in some distractor answers. I came up with these based on the mistakes that I continue to see.
Oh...did I tell you I am only teaching math this year? I am loving it!!! I promise I am really going to try and blog more about what is going on in my class. Hold me to it!!!
