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.
