Ahhhhh ... Sundays .... my favourite day of the week! Busy day yesterday - both little girls had dancing lessons, family lunch date, shopping, and my oldest daughter's second game of her indoor soccer playoffs (they've won both games in the playoffs so far!). I'm hoping the pace is a little slower today - one daughter is going to a birthday party, and another daughter wants to have some friends over. I think we'll make some pretty head bands with her friends. I'm also working on a new set of cootie catchers (money). I'm making a set with American coins and a set with Canadian coins.
Anyhow, I digress ... today is about math journals. I almost didn't get a math journal in this week ... almost ... but I found some time during our math block on Friday afternoon, and we spent the last 1/2 hour making a new foldable for our journals ... we were cutting it pretty close!!!
- the definition
- common words related to multiplication
- the traditional algorithm
- picture strategy
- array strategy
- box and cluster strategies
We used the same multiplication question for all the strategies (32 x 21) so students could see using various strategies will still result in the same answer.
Well, that's about it for today. I'm excited to have my Earth Day Report Card in the TPT newsletter today! Don't forget I have a 15% off sale at both my TPT store and my TN store - sale runs until tomorrow. If you get a chance, stop by my sister's blog, Meet the Dubiens. She has a FABULOUS bento box giveaway going on right now. And ... one last thing ... tomorrow is a very special day for my blog - tomorrow is my one year blogoversary. You've got to stop by and see what SURPRISE I've planned for you!
