Penguins everywhere!

Today I had a lovely time at Hillcrest Elementary working with some awesome kids in grades 1, 2 and 3.  Our mathematical tasks grew out of the book “365 Penguins” by Jean-Luc Fromental (which is, of course, available in French as well!). Together we added flocks of penguins and created arrangements of penguins, exploring mental math strategies as well as multiplication and division!

The grade 1&2 penguin groupings are here as arelarger penguins for modelling “groups of” thinking.  Help yourself, and do explore the book as well.  There’s great mathematical potential in it!  :o)
