Nothing detailed...just circles or tally marks, but they need some sort of representation so I can tell and to give them a visual. I also require mine to write the numbers for how they counted, "label their counting," so I can see if how they count, so they can double check their counting, and so they can practice writing numbers correctly.Whitney @ the first grade rounduphttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02986381982136673388noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5699949251277141058.post-5063722510670042292014-09-09T21:12:51.401-05:002014-09-09T21:12:51.401-05:00Sorry to bother you again.

If your students are modeling with counters or other manipulatives to solve the problem, do you have them draw the counters on the paper or just write what they used to show how they got their answer?Angela Kellyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06632195130453338208noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5699949251277141058.post-48386411812435416152014-09-01T16:45:20.321-05:002014-09-01T16:45:20.321-05:00Thank you so much!

I got my counting collections done last night and I am super excited about starting these this week!!!! I will most definitely be looking for your assessments packet! Thank you for your help! I read the CGI book this summer but didn't know where to start.

As far as assessment, I did have a file uploaded on TPT, but it is really outdated and I have changed quite a bit on it. One of my next projects is to work on creating a packet of assessments to use. You can use the Math Wall printout pages for assessing those skills. As far as the math mysteries/CGI, I chart my kids' strategies daily and then we give them math mysteries from all of the required problem types in our CC standards and assess based on how many they can successfully solve. We use a rubric...2 points for solving in an appropriate way (not subtracting for addition, etc...), 1 point for the correct answer, and 1 point for an accurate equation on problems our standards require equations for. Like I said, hopefully, in the next few weeks, I'll be putting out an assessment packet for all of this.<br /><br />On math wall and measurement...You will notice that each math wall alternates between the two measurement standards: order lengths and non-standard measurement. Each week I resize the items on the order lengths page to change it up, but we always order lengths. On the non-standard measurements, I just draw a different sized line each week. Same skill, just different answers. Hopefully, that makes sense! Thanks for your purchases! :)<br />Whitney @ the first grade rounduphttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02986381982136673388noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5699949251277141058.post-76158416947345381282014-08-31T16:08:50.755-05:002014-08-31T16:08:50.755-05:00This is the last question, I promise.

Do you just do the same measurement problem every week?Angela Kellyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06632195130453338208noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5699949251277141058.post-54478064157330907332014-08-30T20:18:53.070-05:002014-08-30T20:18:53.070-05:00Yes, that helps!

It is so confusing! Sorry to bother you.

Then during parts of the year, I might replace a math mysteries day or counting collections day with a full measurement lesson like the one in this blog. My math walls are up for purchase in my store too. I'm traveling and replying on my phone or else I'd link to some blogs on my math wall time. You can search for them though. Sorry, but I hope that helps!Whitney @ the first grade rounduphttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02986381982136673388noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5699949251277141058.post-48674088017742609642014-08-30T15:59:45.322-05:002014-08-30T15:59:45.322-05:00I just found your blog.

I just have a question; when do you fit in lessons like measurement, into your schedule? Is it Mondays in the place of counting collections? I am new to first grade and am trying to figure it all out.<br />AngieAngela Kellyhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06632195130453338208noreply@blogger.com
