Our study of heroes will continue over the next few weeks!
We’ve already shared how we celebrate lost teeth in our classroom. Now, we’re taking our show on the road!
Room 123 will be participating in the International Tooth Tally Project this year. In its tenth year, this project allows students from all over the world to share how many teeth they lose over the course of three months. Along the way, students can learn more about life in other countries as well as hone their math skills.
To insure the cyber-safety of students, this project is hosted on a private wiki via Wikispaces; only registered participants can access the wiki. I also will follow WFB guidelines with our postings.
The first activity Room 123 completed for this project was visualizing what the Tooth Fairy may look like. To do so, they had to listen to a possible description of the Tooth Fairy. Then, they used those details to create their own images. Here are their interpretations:
Watch for updates on the Tooth Tally Project over the next three months!
First grade mathematicians are creating number scrolls! This on-going project provides practice in counting and place value. Here’s how number scrolls are created:
