Ten Pin Linky: Math Ideas

 I'm linking up with Ashley again this week.

I got extra nerdy with my math board on Pinterest.  I had over 100 pins on my math board and it was just too jumbled for me.  I started with my base Math Lesson Ideas Board and then created 4 more boards - Addition & Subtraction, Place Value, Number Sense, Geometry.  I'm in the process of doing the same thing with my Reading Board, but that's another topic for a different day!

Doubles Rap iPod - My students loved this last year!  I had such a musical group.  

What a great visual! I think this would be great to make when we are learning about commutative property with our math facts.

Nothing drives me more crazy than the sound of the ten rods and ones. At least I know when the students are playing and not paying attention, but still! In this pin, the ten rods and ones are made from sponges.

I bought Cara Caroll's Calendar Companion last year and my firsties were actually engaged in calendar time.  (And I was too!)  This is a life size version that's perfect for your calendar area.

I used this to introduce my math centers last year.  It's like the Daily 5 for math! The pin leads to great math workshop organization ideas.

I really want to cut my composition books in half this year. We never use the entire book anyhow.

I like to send this home for homework for a number sense/tally practice.  

Easy way to teach double digit addition!  You have to go to the neighbor's house to borrow a how you borrow a cup of sugar from you neighbor.  Great analogy and I'll take anything that helps with this concept.

Ok, I didn't quite make ten, but my eyes are getting a little sleepy.  Good night!


  1. WOW! We have a lot of the same pins! I definitely want to try the math journals with my class this coming year.

  2. I started to organize my boards as well! I love the doubles rap :).

  3. I love the idea of cutting the math journals in half. Just like you said, we never use the whole thing anyway :)
