As school begins, remember to have children talk about math on a daily basis.
Each week, we will write activities that can be done with young children.
Have children count out loud as you are driving in the car or walking home from school or being in the classroom. Have them count starting with different numbers. Listen to hear if the words are in the correct order.
To begin the year:
rgarten- Count up to 10

Kindergarten - Count up to 20. Listen for those tricky numbers from 11-20.

Grade 1 - Count up to 100. Start with different numbers. Listen for counting through the decade numbers (27, 28, 29...30)
Grade 2 - Count up to 120. Start with different numbers. Listen for counting past 100 (110, 111, 112 etc.)

Quote from District Math Coach

How do you feel about the DMA assessments and interventions?

I am so pleased to have this wonderful tool as a resource in my district.  As a Math Coach and the leader of the Math RtI Committee for our district, I am looking for tools to help identify students who struggle with Mathematics and require Intervention.  Not only does this tool give us the ability to identify these students, but the Intervention Handbook then helps us to know how to remediate these students.  The price is very reasonable, and the materials are all there for me.  I don't have to pull from here and dig around to find what I need!  I have also been told by several of the Intervention Specialists that the DMA is a huge asset in the writing of IEP goals for their Special Education students since it pinpoints areas of improvement for these students.                                                                                                                                                       ~  District Math Coach
