I am a Math Specialist for the Alabama Math, Science, and Technology Initiative (AMSTI). I provide Math resources and support for K-2 teachers all across South Alabama. I love learning alongside teachers and their students.
I recently earned a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from Auburn University.
Imagine my surprise when I noticed my number of blog followers had exceeded the century mark! Wow! 100 followers in just over a month! You guys are super! Thanks so much for the comments and notes of encouragement!
To thank you, I have created a little prize for the occasion. It is a quick and simple activity that is easy to implement in your classroom but packs a punch in helping to nurture a child's conceptual understanding of numbers.
I have used Today's Number as a math journaling activity, a morning math rountine, and as a way for students to communicate their understanding about numbers.
You have probably seen this used in many different ways before. Lately, I have noticed a couple of versions floating around on Pinterest. So you might say this is Pinterest inspired. I've included a number sheet to post with ideas for representing the number, and a sheet for students to record their own representations.
I hope you enjoy using it and thanks for being such sweet followers! Feel free to pin this and share the printable with friends! Click the picture below to grab your copy.
