Hello BLOGGY friends!

This week my Tip is for …
MATH  PRACTICE
I KNOW…ICK!!!!
NO MORE Worksheets!
I can’t stand them to do another worksheet!
I don’t won’t to CORRECT another worksheet!
So HOW do we practice?
In MY classroom…we play SCOOT!
BUT….we don’t make a whole NEW game…we just use what we have!
We use…MONKEY MATH!

Monkey math practices 
 20 – Grade 1 Math Skills
Right now they are on my wall…
But…when we want more practice on a single skill..
We take them out & 
SCOOT!
Instead of hanging them on the wall (like I do now)…
We now…place them on desks..
use our white boards ( or  lined  paper )…
and we 
SCOOT!
After we do 10-12 practice problems..
we exchange papers  ( or whiteboards) 
 and correct them!
Practice and  math talk 
…music to my ears!
FYI….Monkey Math is for Grade  1
BUGGY MATH is available for Grade 2
