I'm completely overwhelmed. I'm soo good at stuff, that I've already completely designed the template that most of my district is adopting for use - it's an MS word template with drop down menus for all the standards. Got that done in late July. Now I just have to write my first plan without a book to go by. The first two weeks were easy - they were just a review of K stuff. Now we're supposed to get into extending the counting sequence - counting to 120. I know this should be easy, but I'm drawing a complete blank. Other than counting over and over again, by 1s, 5s, & 10s, what am I supposed to do??? Some of my kiddos are great - already counting, if not to 100, then close. Others can't count to 10. They can't sit completing blank 120 charts for an hour & a half. We do our Daily straw count and days in school count - that's part of our calendar math routine. According to our pacing guide, I'm supposed to spend 3 weeks on the following guiding questions: 1. Can students count in sequence to 120 starting at any number less than 120? 2. Can students count by 5s and 10s? 3. Can students read and write numerals in the range of 1-120? 4. Can students represent a number of objects with a written numeral? 5. Can students explain a number in terms of groups of ten and ones? 6. Can students make groups of tens to count larger sets of objects? We are given very few "suggested" activities that aren't part of our calendar math routine. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Other than that, thanks for letting me vent, and pray for me!
