Some first graders were playing a game called Roll Them Out, practicing their +2 strategy skills.
They were randomly dealt five cards, and we were all astounded to see that they got the same cards and in the same sequential order!!!  What are the chances of that???  Perhaps we should start exploring probability concepts!!

First graders are continuing to take turns being on the Tech Team when they visit Math Club and help their classmates navigate through math games on their iPads.











Kindergarten classes visited Math Club this week for the first time!  They rotated through three centers, including an activity on the SmartBoard, creating and describing patterns.  They also learned the meaning of the word "perimeter" !  Imagine that! Such a sophisticated word for a Kindergartner to know and understand!  They used to to describe where to sit on the rug....around the perimeter!

Second graders are figuring out what makes a number even or odd.  It was pretty impressive when they could identify numbers in the 100s and 1000s as even or odd by just looking at the digit in the ones place!

First graders LOVED learning how to play a favorite game called "Roll Them Out"  Several made me "pinky-promise" to make more versions of this game.
