Towards the end of last week we started learning what it looks like to do math with someone. This means we work with a partner quietly at our assigned spot around the room. It also means we get to play math games! The students have done a great job so far. If you would like to play these games at home, you can download them from this post. They are called "Quick Flash". One partner holds up a card for 3 seconds and the other partner has to figure out the number in just those 3 seconds. If the partner guesses correctly, he/she gets to keep the card.
We are mathematicians, readers, writers, scientists, teammates, and first graders. We spend our days exploring, listening, and learning. We know that learning can feel uncomfortable sometimes, but as a team, we support each other and help each other reach our goals. Join us on our journey!
