Math Their Way

I came across this title for math. Our school does not have a math program we go off of the Math Essentials created by the state of NC. I can't stand it and math in my room is not going well. I need to find something to help. I was wondering if anyone has read this book, if it is helpful or if anyone has suggestions for math. I teach first grade by the way.

about 13 years ago when I did Kindergarten. I liked it at the time. Right now we are using an awful math program that jumps from concept to concept without going in-depth.

MTW (math their way) is based on using manipulatives to discover and understand math concepts. Lots of manipulative work for addition, subtraction, pattern, and some place value. I've used it both in 1st and in K-although not exclusively in either. It's the basis for my teacher created math curriculum. The book won't be much use if you don't have some manipulatives-pattern blocks, tiles, buttons, etc. You will also have to do your own fact practice worksheets for computation. If you get the book and like the approach their used to be a really good 5 day summer course on the program.

went to a week long workshop on it and never looked back. I think it is the ONLY way to do math in kindergarten. Of course I had a shelf full of manipulatives--I am no longer in kindergarten and since they have gone to a cookie program---there is a world of difference (and not good ) in what I see the kids doing

If your school is looking for a new curriculum a great one is Everyday Math.. It is a spiral effect curriculum! Very hands on, games to reinforce lessons! Wonderful!!!
