The first few days of math are always so interesting as I listen into conversations. On the third day of school, we used our math time to do a "Numbers About Me" project. I've seen this often on Pinterest and blogs and wanted to make sure we started the year thinking about math in our world. It was an interesting conversation as their eyes lit up each time they realized the things in their lives that involved numbers. They were simple things but making the connection to math made for a good conversation. We combined this with self-portrait work and the kids had a great time creating themselves with their Numbers About Me information.
