Class Experience

Students will be able to count and compare numbers, represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction, work with numbers within 1000 to understand place value, identify and describe shapes, analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes, and represent and interpret data.
Mathematical skills addressed in throughout this class (each skill might not be discussed in each class:
- Fluently adding and subtracting within 20 using mental strategies 
- Comparing two and three digit numbers 
- Adding within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction 
- Adding two digit numbers and 10 or 100 more/less of numbers
- Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones, and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
- Using addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing with unknowns in all positions.
- Using addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns
- Reading numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
- Reasoning with shapes and their attributes.
I am an elementary school librarian at a preK-grade 2 school. Before that, I was a first grade teacher for 6 years with other teaching experience in grades 2-4. During over 10 years of elementary teaching experience, I have taught math to many students. I think a strong foundation of number sense and mathematical thinking at a young age is crucial to future mathematical success. Math talks with fun activities were one of the best ways I found to achieve this goal!
Something to write on (pencil and paper or a whiteboard) would be beneficial.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
