Our math period consists of many different levels. We begin each math period with a warm-up. They do different problems to trigger prior knowledge or to get a glimpse at what is to come ahead.
When new skills are taught students are given ample time to practice those skills independently. When they complete their independent work they move on to different tasks to practice further. They play math games with classmates, use the computer and complete a writing in math task weekly.

1. place value and money
