CGI is alive and well in Room 203! I'm loving it! Kiddos are workin, kiddos are talkin about numbers, kiddos are makin their teacher a happy camper! Here's some pics of student work (and some play with the manipulatives).
We used word problems from my
Common Core Word Problems for Cognitively Guided Instruction-Halloween Theme. That's available in my Tpt store of course;).
I've been a first grade teacher for 17 years. I started teaching when I was 21. I really don't think my class learned a darn thing that year! I was a lucky duck that stayed home with my two kids for 7 years! That was a long time ago, by the way. I've been married 28 years...how is that possible! My hubby is very supportive of the teacher in me. When I interviewed for the job I have now he told me to tell them I am a 24 hour a day teacher. You know what I mean...it's ALWAYS on my mind!
