First Grade Math-Warm Ups: Week of April 20-23, 2015

This was a short week with only 4 school days anyhow, and I was gone for one of those, so only 2 warm-ups this week, friends.  Still working on data collection….


The warm-up for this morning directly tied to our work in Math, as it was the basis for a formative assessment.  We had been working on collecting, organizing and analyzing data for many days in whole group and partner situations, and it was time to try it on their own.  It’s hard to see, but there are names signed on each side of the t-chart.  We skipped the post-its on this day to make sure the data didn’t change before we could analyze it (we do this EARLY in the day and hours pass before we talk about it).

Ok, so we really didn’t spend 3 days doing this one, but with a strange week, we did it on Tuesday morning, but didn’t have a chance to discuss it until Thursday afternoon.  The conversation we had around the analysis is documented on the sheet; the post-its were how we “voted.”  This is good stuff here. 🙂

  1. Hello 20something kids,

    What wonderful maths ideas you have experienced. It made me wonder what I might have chosen if asked.
    For the Monday task, I might have chosen a way to have both. Imagine exploring the deep sea on some fdistant planet. I suppose that might be cheating so I think, if I had to choose one, it would be outer space because there is so much out there we could learn.
    For the second choice, I suppose it would be summer because days are longer and I have more time for hiking and nature photography.
