Last week we finished up with Unit 3 in math. Along with having an assessment, first graders also did some other activities. Early in the week they started writing numbers on a counting strip, going as high as they could. Some of them are still working on these when they have time! They also played a game called Missing Numbers where they had to figure out which numbers were "missing" from a number chart. They made predictions and then explained their thought process.
First graders also examined and compared a number line and a number chart. We cut up a number line in chunks of 10 numbers and arranged them into a chart format. We were amazed at all of the patterns we discovered!!
