Have you heard of a Math Wall?
Have you ever heard of a Math Wall? Kim has one in her room and it is AMAZING! It has her calendar, but so much more…The photo on the bottom shows what folder for each child. It has laminated recording pages that the children write on with a dry erase marker. In the photo on the top left, Kim gave them a number and they had to think of all the different number sentences they could think of. Once they had work independently for a while, Kim had them share their sentences and she wrote them on the large circle map on the math wall. In the photo on the top right, they were talking about the number patterns in one more, one less, ten more. This is just a few of the things they did. Their number sense was off the charts….
In this picture from my earlier post on Reader’s Workshop, you can see the Math Wall behind me. Didn’t get a good picture of the whole thing! Kim has her Math Wall, Move Over Here Comes the Math Wall on tpt. BTW, in case you haven’t read some of the previous posts, this is my friend Kim Jordano’s thinking, work, and class…not me Kim Adsit!!!
