Math Lab

Today was our first Math Lab and it was math-tastic!
Students rotated among three stations:

1. Coin Craziness with Mrs. Marzilli
At this station, students reviewed the names and values of the coins. They then practiced counting coins in their Math Journals.

2. Puzzling Problems with Mrs. Glazier
Using the strategy "Act it Out," students used real coins to solve a tricky word problem. Mrs. Glazier then modeled for students how to show their work and give a written explanation. We will be doing this all year!

3. Super Story with Mrs. Foisy
Mrs. Foisy, our math specialist, read aloud the story Splitting the Herd: A Corral of Odds and Evens by Trudy Harris. After listening to and discussing the story, students worked on a coloring sheet by identifying odd and even numbers.
