Aled and April Show Podcast

Thanks for joining us on the Alex and April show!

Story Time – Camping Songs

We’re gonna do some of my favorite campfire songs.

Alex tells a joke

Are you gonna play my song? The monkey and the engineer song?

Learn the chorus:

Big Locomotive Right On Time, Big Locomotive coming down the line, 

Big locomotive #99, left the engineer with a worried mind.

Then we’re gonna play Win It in A Minute!

You can play along with the puppets and animals at Montana Bear School and win a prize if you get them all right. Mrs. Beyer and the animals will model for you and with practice you should be able to get them correct! We will have lots of challenges for students of grades k-6.

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.
