Amy Thomas, First Grade, Reedy Creek Elementary School
This unit is designed to help students build a solid foundation in number awareness, which will lead to a better understanding of place value. Students will learn by playing games with a partner, which will aid each student in building on his/her prior knowledge and deepening his/her understanding of place value. Students experience math in fun ways, games and a little competition, and build partnerships in a safe environment through morning meetings. This combination will build a solid foundation of number awareness needed to master many math concepts.
