Yesterday, I had one of my
We worked on doubles addition facts this week. According to my pre-assessment, my students knew 0 + 0 through 5 + 5 fluently. They really needed practice when it comes to the doubles facts for 6 through 9.
I taught them the Doubles Rap. I have no idea who the original source of the rap is...and I changed to the words (at the bottom) a bit. Here is version we use in my classroom. We rap the bottom part first and then rap our way through the facts.
My students also played Doghouse Doubles (which is a game that I made to help them practice doubles addition facts). You can find it at my Tpt store and in my Teachers Notebook shop.
OLW update...My OLW this year is relax. I started my day today with a 2 mile run (which was relaxing because we are having freakishly warm temperatures for January in Michigan - it was 44 degrees for my run). Then I chose 5 students and sent their parents "happy mail" (a nice email to their parents about how they are doing). I'm going to limit myself to 1 hour of school work today and them I'm going to take a relaxing walk with my kids to the library. When I get home, I am going to sit in my new chair and read something fun. I will not eat the chocolate brownies that my husband received from one of his favorite students.
