OK, OK. I know I am the only one thinking about math today, this, our first day of the March Break… BUT, I did want to share just one more thing today.It’s something Kate brought to our last workshop in Coquitlam, and I think it’s pretty cool. It’s a set of grids in a variety of shapes like this. The idea is that you download and print or copy this sheet of hundreds chart puzzle pieces onto bond paper, laminate it, then cut out the little pieces. What you’ll end up with are a range of puzzle pieces to lay over top of a standard hundreds chart to block out some of the numbers. The job of the child then is to use an overhead pen (don’t they LOVE those?) to write down the missing digits – the ones that are covered.A great way to practice – and assess – understandings of the number system and patterns in the hundreds chart! Thanks Kate!Carole
