I was only in school 2 days this week but I managed to take a handful of blurry pictures for you. :)
1 Penguin Part-Part-Whole
The kinders broke into pairs. They chose either a dot die or a number cube (1-6 or 5-10). We discussed strategies - draw a picture, count on & numberline. They took turns with their partner "teaching" how to solve each problem.
This pair used a numberline to help count the larger numbers and write the numerals the correct direction.
I gave this pair a number cube to guide them to count on. They added a dot die, rolled both & added them before adding to the worksheet.
2 Tacky Writing
Yesterday, we read the original Tacky.
For Morning Work today, we wrote 2 sentences and illustrated in our journals to predict what Tacky would do in Tacky and the Winter Games based on the picture on the cover. After our guest reader read the story, we looked back in the text for details to compare Tacky with the other penguins. We drew and labeled pictures.

4 Some more Math...
This year, my Write the Math Room has become Write the Sensory Tub due to lack of wall space. This month, my kinders picked cotton balls and shredded paper. Oh, my. They had two recording sheets to pick from. On this one, they count the domino or ten frame. Then they write that numeral and count on. Some of the cards in the bin have larger numbers. I may make suggestions on the recording sheet or types of cards. Most students self-differentiate. They know I check up on their work and will question them. It is great to see kids stretch themselves.
This is a warm-up we did. Color the mittens in the ten frame two colors to show parts and write the addition sentence. We've used a similar page as a recording sheet for ten frame cards.
5. This sensory tub is from my Winter Kids Write the Math Room which is also part of my Winter Kids Math Bundle. The bundle is part of the Maryland TPT Sellers Giveaway. It is the last day to enter!
