How do you start math each year? What do you do the first day? Week? What is the first math topic in which you focus?

Math Start Ups

First Day they did a math about me worksheet that just got them to thinking about how numbers are all around us.

Day two I read How Much Is A Million and we discussed numbers and math.

The rest of the week I gave some fact tests to see if they knew their addition and subtraction facts. Then I game some simple word problems to see if they could solve them. These were not graded, juts used as a marker to show where they were with their math skills.

Allowed them to use manipulatives in centers so we could discuss how to use them properly.

Our first topic of focus was always place value.

I start off with multiplication strategies. That way, they learn how to figure out a mult./div. problem until they have their facts memorized.

Do you use a picture book like Each Orange Has 8 Slices?

Or do you have a game that you teach them?

Or do you draw pictures of things in groups using drawings or just circle with X's inside?

Or do you use manipulatives sort into equal groups?

A couple of things:

1. We use those small stickers to make arrays.
2. They draw pictures to make different equal groups.
3. We use manipulatives to make both equal groups and arrays. It's nothing fancy - just a sheet with ladybugs on it that they cut out and use. They keep them in a baggy to use as needed/wanted.

I'm not familiar with the picture book, so I'm going to look into it! I love picture books!!!

This might be helpful to teachers unfamiliar with the drawing game.
