It's time for another SmorgieVision video!
(This one is a bit blurry...sorry about that! And I have the GoPro strapped to my chest...stay tuned for that fun video!)
We've been working on subtraction and after our 5 little monkeys lesson, we play a little game called GET OFF MY BOAT!
This game is great because it really helps the 'staches grasp the concept of taking away and making less! (and it's close to Thanksgiving so our boat is the Mayflower!)
You need to make a boat on your floor.
I make a simple trapezoid boat out of masking tape. EASY PEASY!
As you see in the video, I get some people on my boat. We count them. I write the number. Then I make some people get off my boat and we solve the equation!
At the end of the video I let some of the 'staches have turns being in charge of the boat!
Great subtraction lesson that incorporates the students and movement and total physical response as well as working with the equations and number sentences.
And let's be for real...it's fun telling them to get off the boat!!!! #teacherfun
