Wordless Wednesday: Today's Math Lesson

It's time for...

Today is my first time to link up with this party and I am SUPER excited!

Today I want to share what we did for our math lesson today.  Check it out below!

 My question for you is:

How do your students record their sorting? 
You can grab the mat that I used today {here}.

In the Works! Blog Series: Counting in the Primary Classroom

So I had high hopes of finally posting my classroom tour this weekend, but instead I took the weekend off from all things "teaching" and spent time with my family. :) My baby boy turned five months old on Friday, so I decided to take some pictures. 
Roll Tide!

Although I didn't actually "work" on anything school related this weekend, my wheels were still turning! I have been doing  A LOT of PD in the area of mathematics and OGAP (click {here} to learn more about what OGAP is and pick up a freebie) and I have been working on increasing the rigor (don't you just LOVE that word?) in my classroom with math. 

I want share what I have learned and what I have found (so far) to work in my classroom, so I decided to do a series of posts as a way to share with you! 

I hope to have the first one finished by this weekend. 

So far my ideas include posts on:

                             1. Introducing the series and some of my learning
                             2. Counting Collections
                             3. Counting Jar
                             4. Morning Meeting/Math Meeting

If you have any suggestions for other things that you would like to know more about, please let me know!
