You might remember a few months ago when I talked about a Fraction Review Power Point that I did with Kori’s class. Well, I wanted to dive into that a little bit more!
I love things like this because they require ZERO prep! We just simply displayed the math questions and we were able to have such great conversations with the students. Technology isn’t always my friend, but for simple things like this, I just can’t get enough! So, we displayed the review questions using the projector and screen.
The students responded in two ways. They used a little clip chart to mark their answers AFTER they had shown their work on their desks (a white board or scratch paper would work also!). This allowed the students time to solve the problems and the freedom for them to solve in the way they thought was best.
After solving, they used a clothespin to show the correct answer. What is great about these clip charts is they can be used time and time again if they are laminated!
You can see here how the question is at the front of the room, they kids are at their desks working, and everyone is focused!
Of course it is always fun when it is time to show those answers!
Kori’s class responded so well to this type of questioning system, that she continued to use it for other math concepts. Here they were working on building different 3D shapes with cubes.
And they had cubes at their desks to solve the problems with! So easy to add in some hands-on even while doing a Power Point!
So, the students would build, solve, and answer!
Then they also used the same format when studying time! After seeing how much the kids enjoyed these math problems, we knew we had to make some more! So, we have teamed up to bring these Math Power Points to you!
Now you won’t see the ones mentioned in this blog post, but we will be tackling all 2nd grade standards soon. So far we have…
Place Value to 999 that covers composing numbers, base ten blocks, expanded form, comparing numbers, and ordering numbers. We’ve tried to make sure that we also include lots of higher-level thinking questions so that you can have meaningful conversations in your classroom!
plus we have Addition and Subtraction Strategies! This one covers basic addition and subtraction with strategies like making ten, doubles, doubles plus one, counting on, etc. Then we also included 2-Digit Addition and Subtraction with place value strategies. We’ve included breaking apart numbers, using expanded form, and more!
You can click on the pictures above to take you to our new Power Point packs! They can be used as a test review, daily warm-up, whole group activity, or even printed to use as a scoot or center! We will for sure be creating more in the future, but we wanted to share what we have so far! Hope you enjoy!
