Math Workshop: Part-Part-Whole

During our math workshop this week, we investigated how we can further break apart numbers into smaller parts.  We also began examining number lines.

Filling in the missing number

Oh Thursday, we had "Number Corner" morning.  Each child picked a slip of paper from a mystery bag, and then created a number story around that number.  Each student picked a way to show two parts to make the number on their fingers, and then we photocopied their fingers.  The children loved the process and each number story is so unique and creative!!

Some children represented their number with pictures, some with equations, some even with word problems.  It speaks to how we say that we can think about numbers in all sorts of ways!
