    Hello:love: I am teaching positional words for the next two weeks. So far, they have grasped the concept of most words. Today was Before and After. For some reason, they are having such a hard time with it! I showed a math story on the smart board, had children line up in lines, drew pictures on the board and still more than half of them just don't get it. Any strategies you can share? Thanks!

    Where did you find the math story for the Smart board? I don't have any advice for you, but I sympathize. My class doesn't understand before and after either!

    After the first few weeks of school I start asking before-and-after questions as part of calendar time. What day comes before Saturday? What day comes after today? What letter comes after J? What number comes before 20? (all the answers can be found by looking at the charts on the wall.) Some kids get it right off, some need weeks of repetitive modeling.

    I do the same questioning activities for days of the week. I also have a large number line on the wall at group time, I have a child choose a number and place a sticky note on it. One child identifies the chosen number and two other children tell the number that comes before/after. It is really a difficult concept for some kids!! Good luck!!
