I'm linking up with Katie King over at First Grade Jungle!
I have to share this great resource that my students and I absolutely adore. It has helped them become such great problem solvers!
It is called Thinking Blocks! We use it on the smartboard during whole class instruction as well as independently in the computer lab. It is super easy for kids to navigate and offers help when they get stuck on a certain step of a problem.
It fits perfectly with the Core's mathematical practice "model with mathematics". I'm seeing students carry these skills over into their independent work on a daily basis.
Check it out!
