First Grade After School Program
The first grade ASP mathematicians have been growing their “math brains!” The students took charge of their own learning through a number bond project. Our guiding question was: “How many number bonds exist with totals from 1-10?” First we divided into small groups and found all the ways to make numbers from 1-10. We noticed many patterns through this investigation! We then drafted our number bond Christmas ornaments and checked with a partner to make sure we were correct. After decorating, we made signs for each group and displayed them in the hall. The answer to our guiding question is . . . 65! We made all 65 number bonds. We have also been practicing all of our new and exciting math strategies in after school program. These first graders have a lot of “zest” about math!
Thank you Mrs. Rowe and Santa!
