M ATH S TRATEGIES A ND T RANSITIONS Tara Tiller came to Fentress Co. May 11, 2011 and shared math strategies. Our administration team, instructional coaches and teachers attended the MODEL SCHOOLS conference June , 2011 where we participated in various sessions and gathered this information.
T RANSITIONAL I DEAS K-2 grades (line up using these) Count out loud (whisper count by 1’s, 5’s, 10’s, 2’s, 3’s, etc.) Ordinal Numbers ( line up by these and then whisper count up to assigned #) Even, Odd (have odd or even line up then count by …1,3,5,7,9 and look for patterns – the one in 11, 21, 31, etc.) Days of the Week, shape and number identification Ten Less ( give a number, they tell the # that is ten less, ten more) Addition/Subtraction facts 6-8 grades Divisibility Patterns (ends in even number means divisible by 2) Review Formulas (geometric shapes, etc.) Apply to Real Life (slope, gallons, geometry, meters, etc.) 3-5 grades Addition/Subtraction facts Multiplication/Division facts Locate and identify line relationships Angles, geometry, etc.
Spiraling (Bell Ringers/Homework) past, present, future Numbers of the Day Ex. 3, 7 are the numbers for today: K-2 makes groups for the individual digits 3-8 multiplication, fractions, mixed numbers, etc. Answer a problem in 10 different ways to prove if it is correct/wrong Fist on chest (closed fist = working on a strategy, 1 finger from fist = 1 strategy, 2 fingers from fist = 2 strategies Examples of these are available for you
