We’ve been there: the weekend is winding down and it’s time to get your lesson plans together for the week. Rather than sing the Sunday night blues, check out our Pinterest page while you prep. There you’ll find lots of useful information that’s easy to download and use with your students.
Here are 5 resources you can access on DynaMath’s Pinterest page:
1) Real-world nonfiction and math problem sets: DynaMath’s real-world stories combine narrative nonfiction and elementary math in a very unique way. Whether you’re working with students who are struggling, on grade level, or advanced, each feature includes exciting math and reading content for all students. Check out our color-coded math problems: red is for grade 3, blue is for grade 4, and green is for grade 5.
2) Classroom posters: Looking for a colorful, informative way to decorate your classroom? Download a DynaMath classroom poster. Here’s one of our favorites on real-world measurements.
3) Project-based learning: You know that math isn’t always about getting the right answer. It’s about reasoning too. Try assigning your students a math investigation, our project-based activities that build reasoning skills. Like, Build a Bison Habitat where students imagine they’re a park ranger creating a safe environment for the animals.
4) Grade-specific fluency-building activities: Designed specifically for grades 3, 4, and 5, DynaDashes are part of every Teacher’s Guide. Though you can do more than just assess math fluency. For other ideas on how to use a DynaDash in your classroom, read this post from our teacher and math coach, Melinda Villalovos.
5) Skills sheets and homework ideas: From tape diagrams to coordinate grids, place value to polygons, download some of our favorite skills sheets to use in the classroom or as homework.
