Aled and April Show Podcast

Introducing the Alex and April show!

Number Sense

Confidence in math comes from having strong Number Sense.

I received some of the best number sense training in the country. If you spend 5 minutes a day practicing these 5 minute to win it mental math games you will gain automaticity with numbers. In the beginning you might just want to follow along as Mrs. Beyer and the puppets and animals at Montana Bear School model for you but if you practice any child should develop fluency in mathematics.

The math challenges will also be posted on the authentic learner podcast and in the google classroom.

Task 6 ~ Time

I know students struggle to answer the schedule questions on the SBACs and can use practice telling time through upper elementary school.

So today’s time lesson starts explaining how the hours on a clock go from 12am-11:59pm. Then the question of the day is:

If you get up at 7am and have to be at school at 8am. How long to do you have to get to school?

1 hour.
