I thought I knew what I wanted to do with it.
My students needed more
The worksheets were NOT enough!
So…what to do? What to do?
I created…MONKEY MATH!
20 Common Core Standards
No Paper, no ink, no printing needed!
(After you make the MONKEY MATH task cards)
What I initially thought ..
I moved the wall, and made a game!
My kiddos LOVE a game!
The kiddos LOVE using their whiteboards! Moved MONKEY MATH to the wall!
Made MUST DO’s & MAY Do’s for the week.
Monkey Math is now a MUST DO!
Roll the dice. Write the number at the top of the page. Roll 2 dice. Write the number at the top of the page. After they have 4 numbers, they use their white boards to write the answers to the corresponding MONKEY MATH cards.
The dice only give them a number to choose from. When they get four choices, they answer them!
Monkey Math has 20 task cards.
So on Friday they can choose to do numbers higher than 12 ( two dice)…
Clear as mud? Sorry…new game we are inventing it as we go! 🙂
Working with partners!
THEY LOVE IT!
Dice, partners, white boards… MONKEY MATH!
Here is my MATH board.
(Don’t look at the messy headphones..haven’t found a good home for them..YET!)
Just bought the magnetic place value pieces..AMAZON.. ( LOVE THEM )!
And so….we continue.
Math practice without the worksheets!
