If our shapes could talk... what would they tell us?

Quadrilaterals are shapes with four sides. This is how we can identify our regular quadrilaterals:

How many names can you think of for a square? How many quadrilaterals have 2 pairs of parallel lines? How many quadrilaterals have only right angles? |

Place Value and different ways to write a number:

We have started out the year talking about the components and the expectations of our Math Workshop. We will usually follow this routine during our math workshop time:

1. Opening Activity- (5-10 min) this gets our brains thinking about math

2. Mini- Lesson- (15-20 min) math instruction time

3. Work Time/ Center Rotation- (40-50 min) Students will problem solve, practice math work, meet with the teacher, use technology, and play math games.

4. Reflection/Sharing- (10 min) Students share work and discuss strategies or review what we learned

We had our first number talk and I was very impressed with the strategies that students remembered from 2nd grade!
