## Math about Me

Students fill in the rays sharing math-related facts about themselves. For more information and samples, see this post -

Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

I would love to have my students complete an activity like this. They would be able to see how math relates to their personal lives. Numbers dont only exist in math problems, but at home (your address) or even your weight. Math surrounds us and is involved with just about everything we do. This activity would allow the students to recognize the relevance of math in their daily lives.

Alysia's curator insight,

I love this "Math About Me" worksheet. I think it would be fun, even for older students. It's just a fun way to see how we can use numbers and math to describe ourselves and the world around us. I also really like that the different sections reinforce different skills including counting and measurement. I will definitely use this in my classroom.

Alexis's curator insight,

I actually used this in the beginning of the year. My students were engaged and it was related to them. It shows how math is related to them and is in everyday life. They really had to think though about the numbers and the math. I think that this activity is a great "ice breaker" for the beginning of the year and gets students thinking.

## Making Math Meaningful

"Dor Abrahamson, the University of California Assistant Professor of Cognition and Development is a math guy. I met him in a Skype video chat, when, in his inimitable animated fashion, he talked me through his theories about using manipulables to teach math and the significance of embodied learning. He went on to describe new technology he's using to help students embody ratio and proportion. I was impressed, not least by the sheer kinesthetic force of his enthusiasm, though I tried to impress on him how little I understood about math. As you see in the video, Dor is more than a funny, pumped-up professor. He is onto something profound about mathematics, something truly de-mystifying, especially for give-me-something-I-can-grab-onto kids like me, tip-toeing for the first time into the mysterious world of numbers" | via Edutopia

Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

"Mathematics is about making sense of the world," Don Abrahamson. The article and video presenting in this thread is extremely useful. We as teachers will need to help our students understand the formulas and understand why they are solving the problems the way that they do in order to make better sense of what they are doing. After being promoted to the next grade, you typically forget the formula you used to complete the math problem because you haven't practiced it, however; if you teach the logic behind the formula or the reasoning for why you are solving the problem this is making math relevant for the students and most likely will help them remember how to solve future problems.

## KnowledgeBox Math Games | FactMonster.com

Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

My mentor teacher and I are always looking online for math games for early finishers. This is a great way to practice addition with regrouping and allowing the students to use the manipulatives as we have done in class.

## Teaching subtraction with regrouping (borrowing) using a concrete-representational-abstract sequence

New Ways to Teach Subtraction Along with learning to tie one's own shoes, understanding how to "regroup" or borrow in subtraction is one of the many triump
Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

This is a great resource for scaffolding regrouping for students with disabilities. I have two students within my classroom whom have Autism. As we were going through our regrouping lesson, one student completly understood the concept, while the aid would need to work individually with the other student. This is a great way to scaffold the concpet for the student who did not understand. I believe this way would be a better understanding becuase he enjoys to draw and interact by using manipulatives.

Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

This is an interesting strategy. My students who do not understand why they are carrying over their tens manipulative can have a better understanding using the second example Ms. Kaplove gave. Breaking apart the problem, the students could see the tens place and the ones place seperately then add in order to find the solution. I would love to teach this strategy for the students who do not understand regrouping when adding. The manipulatives we use in class (the tens blocks) can not show them why they are regrouping, my students learn that they are suppose to regroup if the ones column is 10 or more. At least introducing regrouping in this way first would help my students understand regrouping when adding better.

## Making Math Meaningful with Online Games and Videos

By Almetria Vaba Math can be made meaningful when connected to students’ experiences. With video clips and interactive games from public media students pra
Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

This website has great links to games and videos on how math is relevant to everyday lives. It can show students how their parents may use math at thier jobs. This is an interactive way to show that math is not only used in school, it is relevant and needed.

## Math Games: Fruit Shoot Subtraction

Learn subtraction the fun way with Fruit Shoot Subtraction.
Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

This would be a great game for the early finishers in my classroom. The students would be able to practice subtraction with regrouping and learning how to do the skill faster as their are levels to the game and opportunities to be timed.

## Subtraction with Regrouping Dance

Mrs. Rhinehart's Class uses this rhyme/dance to help us subtract with regrouping two digit numbers, but it can be used for 2 or more digits!
Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

A fun way to teach students the rules for subtracting with regrouping. I have noticed that my students love learning new catchy songs. My mentor teacher and I have both used songs in our lesssons, this song also incorporates a dance which would be more interactive. The students would love to get out of their seats and dance while learning. I really enojyed this video!

Laura Jane's curator insight,

I love this resource that Jenee curated! My students love to sing and dance any opportunity they get, and this is a great way to embrace that. I know that, personally, I can remember lyrics to songs that I haven't heard in 10 years if I just hear a snippit of the music. Music is a great pnemonic device in teaching, as it engages a different part of the brain. This allows students to make connections in a different way that usual. I think that my learners would love to participate in this, and that it would be an additional resource for them to have on hand when solving regrouping probelms independently.

## Buggy for Second Grade: Addition, Addition, and More Addition

Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

I really like the booklet idea. This way the students will have the steps to solve the problem at their desk. The students wouldn't be depending on me to remind them of the steps. This is a great scaffolding tool because it will gradually allow the students to become independent and complete their regrouping assignment on their own without waiting for direction or trying to remember what to do next. I actually enjoy this booklet idea better than posting a poster arond the room, because the booklet is not confusing and breaks the regrouping process into steps that the students can follow to complete their work.

## Regrouping Practice for Second Graders who Love to Wiggle!

Regrouping Practice for Second Graders who Love to Wiggle! And two weeks later, I'm back in my classroom teaching! Part of my wants to celebrate, and part of me just wants to curl up in a ball! As happy as I am to be back, ...
Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

This activity would be great for my second graders! It allows the students to work together, carry out discussions, and helps the students have a better undestanding of regrouping. After beginning on the regrouping unit, I began to notice modeling with our tens blocks were not as effective for some students as it was for others. This activity would allow the students to actively engage in moving the squares (regrouping) a group of ten to find out how many total squares there are.

I also love the idea of going outside to regroup with things found outside of their school. This would further the students thinking and encouraging them to do math even while at recess. My students had difficulty with believing you could do math outside of school, but with the regrouping in nature, they could take what they learned in the classroom and have fun with it outside.

My question for this activity would be, what could you do to have students understand regrouping when adding and subtracting?
