Math Meeting Area

My first graders love "math meeting time".  We spend the first 15-20 minutes of math instruction on the rug in front of our math board.  Each day we cover day, month, number sequence, tens/ones, and money.  As the year continues we'll add telling time and skip counting.  The children have fun and it's a great way to review before the day's new math lesson. Below are some features of our math board.  You can "tweak" it to suit your grade and/or curriculum.

    Thanks so very much for putting this info out there to help teachers like me. :)
