Students in 5th, 6th and 7th grade participate weekly in a 50 minute math table that explores 5th, 6th and 7th grade math topics. This spring, we have spent a lot of time on fractions. Those pesky fractions have tested us with adding, subtracting, being mixed with whole numbers, divided, multiplied and more. We’ve also Read More >>

# Math Class

This class began the year with “equalizing”. That means we started with making “unequal” amounts of objects. They couldn’t be the same or “equal”. Over time the children came to know we were going to change unequal amount equal amounts by adding or subtracting to one side or the other. As the year has progressed Read More >>

# Math Centers for Kindergartners

Over the last two months the Kindergarten students, twice a week, explored counting, coins (pennies, nickels and dimes), measurement using non standard units, coins and classification. Students compared lengths. For example which is longer 7 links or 4 unifix cubes? Using a balance they compared the weight of various objects using units such as unifix Read More >>

# Fractions

Students in fourth and fifth grade have been learning about fractions over the past five weeks. Throughout these five weeks students have learned how to make equivalent fractions, simplify fractions, compare fractions, and order fractions. Throughout the unit the students have reviewed and learned some new math vocabulary. Some of the new vocabulary that the Read More >>

# Fractions

Students in grades 1, 2, and 3 explored the concept of fractions using manipulative. First they had to identify and label all the fraction pieces, by using them to make a whole. As they made these observations we discussed the meaning of numerator and denominator. The denominator identifying how many equal pieces were in each Read More >>

# Measurement

A group of children in grades 1 though 3 explored how humans measure their world! We started with length and using yard sticks, meter sticks, tape measures and rulers we measured objects around the school. We discussed the various units that can be used, both metric and standard. We learned which unit is longer, an inch or a Read More >>

# Geometry

Let me introduce you to the powerful pentomino! Each unique shape shares one common attribute. It has 5 squares. With these manipulatives, each child cut and created their own set, we were able to explore so many geometry concepts. We considered flips, turns and slides. We learned how to calculate the area of a shape and its Read More >>

# Advanced Math Class

Two students in 7th grade are working at an advanced pace on 7th grade materials. Since the start of the year, they have reviewed topics of fractions, decimals, and a variety of other topics to bring them up to speed on going through our new text book. Our topics this fall have included The Language of Read More >>

# Variables and Inequalities

In Math class the 7th graders have been developing their abilities to solve for a variable in a equation and have recently been introduced to solving inequalities. The amount of background knowledge and problem solving abilities students bring makes each class very enjoyable to teach. Students recently learned how to graph inequalities on a number Read More >>

# 2D and 3D Geometry

With our student teacher, Erica, students in Second Grade have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes through hands-on activities. We started at 2D shapes and learned about the properties of these shapes, including the number of faces, edges, and corners each shape had, and applying that knowledge to build our own shapes out Read More >>
