Problem solving strategies

With the beautiful weather we got this week, the children had some recess time. Our principal even joined us for some fun! Watch the video clip below.

This week in math, we continued problem solving. I created this flow map for students to think about different strategies they can use. These are also strategies they will use through upper grades.
Here, K.L and R.D turn and talked to discuss the problem--
Then, in whole group, we acted out the problem--
Using math center tools--

Students went off to draw the problem--
Finally, we showed it on the rekenrek--
We had a special visitor on Thursday, Mr. Robot!
Thank you to all the families that came out for parent teacher conferences. It was great to catch up with all the families and discuss each child's progress!
Reminder, this Friday is a half day! Also next Monday is our trip to watch Click Clack Moo!

Side note, I ran the NYC half marathon today! Here are some photos to share! My sister Ashley came out to support me!
