I teach a 4/5 and use math expressions
10172010, 10:24 PM


First let me say that I don't play by the rules exactly.
I give the kids, that I'm not teaching, seat workthe homework/remembering sheets. I color code the sheets to keep things straight for me. 4th gets blue like their books and 5th gets gold like their books. I ask them to do the remembering side while I'm working with the other group then we switch. I don't do the whole lesson in the teachers guide. I pick, choose and focus on the meat of the lesson.
When they finish I have a few games that are on going they can play. I also have them help others if they have been "checked out".
I divided the math expression up and don't go exactly in order. I try to keep the concepts matched up as much as possible.
If you want more info about the games I have the kids play or how I divided up the text PM me and we can talk more.
