Our Mathematical Day!

I get this question a lot, “When do you teach math?”  I suppose the answer is all. day. long.
Here are photos that I snapped just from today!
We start using reading and math as part of our morning work.
Our Mathematical Day! 11
I love the cats on the right.  They all have eyebrows!  Ha!
Our calendar is filled with math!  I shine mine on the document camera, while my sweeties work on their own.  This is the 19th day of school, so I accept approximations.  In a month or two, I will sit back and my student helper will run the calendar time for us!
We have our math workshop time.  It starts with fluency practice.  Then we move onto the introduction of a new concept.  Students explore this concept with their math partner.  Students then move onto independent practice.  Finally, we have a share period.   We loved playing “Match it” today.  Originally, I intended to have the students select a single shape, but they soon kicked it up a notch… I just got out of the way!
Our Mathematical Day! 13
This math workshop is a new unit that I co-authored with Deanna Jump.  We noticed a few typos, so we have made corrections. If you recently purchased it, you may want to re-download it.  SORRY!
We sincerely love our math journals!  Here are a few samples from today!  I love that today we were working on making an AB pattern.  We had already touched on these types of patterns during our calendar time!  Math journals allow for spiral review.  
Practice makes permanent (I did not make that saying up… stole it from someone)
The final minutes of our day are spent on math stations!  This cute little puzzle is from Cara Carroll!
So… when do I do math?  All! Day! Long!

  1. I love your math journals! We started them last week and so far we've done two. Slow going but we're getting there.

  2. I too love your math journals – we are doing AB pattern crayons tomorrow. I love to do math all through the day also, it really comes in handy for tubs/centers/station ideas (my school requires BOTH small group reading & writing groups).

    Love the morning work – might have to look into that!

  3. Might seem an odd question, but, do you have a math series you must use (I do!). I would love to use stuff like this – but with what I "have to" do (and they do check!!) there is no time.
    Thoughts??

    1. No, it is not an odd question. Our district adopted Saxon Math. I am not familiar with the other grades, but for kindergarten, it does not meet our needs or the needs of the CCSS. So we were told to supplement it. Whew! That was all I needed to hear… ha!
