Math Choices
Jennifer Callaway's insight:

397 flashbacks! Choice-centered - LOVE IT. This is something I could use for centers, for homework, or maybe even instruction. I could put up some choices of strategies to use and students could pick which one they want to learn that day until we finish them all. I’d then let them explore all of them during their independent practice time.

3rd Grade Number Activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards
Jennifer Callaway's insight:

Oh hello majestical find. It is very nice to meet you! This website is GREAT! There are tons of activities and resources I can use for multiplication, division, fractions, numbers using base ten, AND math/reading read alouds!! My school has some of these books and I could definitely easily incorporate these ideas and activities into my lesson. The suggested problems are also open to multiple strategies which is super!

Love these answers: Use as many shapes as you need to create 10 vertices #openended #mathchat #edwrdsb pic.twitter.com/KJa3HLfkc3

Jennifer Callaway's insight:

I love this. It is kind of like geoboards but on an ipad. This is a great way for students to explore a concept on their own and whether it is with rubber bands on a geo board or an app on an ipad it lets the learner be in control.

Interactive Math Notebooks: equivalent fractions foldable Ms. McHugh's Corner: A Community of Learners
Jennifer Callaway's insight:

Math notebooks is something that I think is definitely great for the classroom. This is something that I could easily incorporate and would make a good alternative homework. I could give students suggested activities to do at home or things I want them to practice and could even tie this back into the math blog aspect. I’d maybe encourage students by telling them I’ll pick someone’s work from their notebook to go on our math blog to be shared.

Candy Bars: a grade 2 or 3 question

Candy Bars: a grade 2 or 3 question | Learner Controlled Learning | Scoop.it
I recently gave both my grade two classes at Charlie Lake School a question involving groups of six. We had been working on a variety of problem-solving strategies including these: using counters/o...
Jennifer Callaway's insight:

This is really similar to what we’ve been doing with the open-ended lessons and reflective reports. I liked that the teacher made an anchor chart for the students. My only change would be that this is how I would introduce the topic of division and not as a review. I’d use this on the first day of a new topic to see what strategies they are already familiar with and then introduce new ones and reinforce old ones. I also really liked the discussion aspect and that the teacher validated that buying a single extra is a good idea, but focused back to the question which asked for packages.

36 Math Apps For Elementary School Students From edshelf -

36 Math Apps For Elementary School Students From edshelf - | Learner Controlled Learning | Scoop.it
by edshelf: Reviews & recommendations of tools for education As more classrooms adopt mobile devices such as iPads, teachers and technology integrators are faced with the question: “What apps do I install?
Jennifer Callaway's insight:

this is great for incorporating technology in the classroom and giving students the chance to control what they’re learning and engaging in. I think that this would be great for a center. If I was in a school that had a smart board I could even use one of the apps during whole group instruction as a fun way to introduce or practice a new concept.

I'm so glad I came across this article. What a great find! Technology should be integrated into schooling on a daily basis. Unfortunately my school does not have the money to have iPads but I hope to some day get a jist of what these apps have to offer and maybe implement them in my own way into the classroom.
