Survived the 1st Week!

It has been an exhausting first week of school but I'm loving every minute of it! I love my new school, my new teammates and my new third graders! One thing I've learned this week is that a good teacher is a good teacher regardless the school or grade! But I must say that my biggest fear is that I won't teach math effectively. So I've really been following my school systems curriculum framework for math. The first 3 weeks of school is spent reviewing addition and subtraction strategies and properties of addtion. So I used the posters they created(I had to make them cuter) and began teaching. I shared them below, please share your favorite method for reviewing addtion and subtraction facts!

  1. Love the simple way you explain the ideas in your posters. I appreciate you sharing them for free.

  2. What math program does your school use?

  3. I love these, thanks for sharing!! Also what font is that, I really like it, very clean and simple!

  4. The font is called SF Cartoonist Hand (I think). I'm actually not all that sure what math program we use, I think it's Scott Foresman. But I've honestly never used the math book or resources that came with it. I look at my state standards and go from there.
