Hooray for Arrays!!!

I love taking a dull math concept and turning it into something exciting for my kiddos. I taught repeated addition arrays for the first time last year when NC adopted CCSS. We were so BORED with graph paper. I created my Hooray for Arrays! set out of absolute necessity. The title was originally an inside joke with myself. (I was really thinking Arrays are Yucky). However, after I created this set (and changed my bad attitude), I realized that arrays really can be fun.

Last weekend I did a total remodel on this product and then we spent the entire week together. :)
On Tuesday, we established the definition of an array. 

On Wednesday, we explored arrays using goldfish. 

On Thursday, we had fun practice with different array centers. 

On Friday, we arrayed all around the room. 

Now that this set has officially been kid tested and teacher approved it is ready to go out into the world.

You can find my Hooray for Arrays! set at my TPT by click here or on the image below.

The Sweet, Sweet Sounds of Shapes & Peek at My Week

Last week (on Thursday & Friday) we began our Geometry unit. I decided to kick things off by reviewing the NAMES of the shapes. 

(I had noticed during math stations that some friends were referring to the hexagon as the "yellow square". . . .)

Yeah so, obviously, some review was needed. Friday we danced and sang our way into re-memorizing the names of basic 2D shapes.

Below is just a sampling of the shape songs available for FREE from Have Fun Teaching on youtube. 

This week we continue our unit on Geometry. Right now we are just working on 2.G.1. Click on the images below to take you to a Google Doc with clickable links.

The 2d Shape Riddles Interactive PowerPoint is new to my store. Click here or on the image below to check it out.

Also, today is the last day of the Facebook Freebie Hop. It ends at midnight tonight. 

And, there is one week left for the Best Selling Curriculum Bundle for 2-3 on Educents! :) 

Have a great week friends! :)
