We are so excited about another year in Room 122! We have worked hard to set up our classroom environment to be a 'third teacher' for our students. Susan Fraser states, “A classroom that is functioning successfully as a third teacher will be responsive to the children’s interests, provide opportunities for children to make their thinking visible and then foster further learning and engagement.” (Capacity Building Series, (2012, p. 67)) The materials we put out have been specifically chosen…

This week, I struggled through teaching the concept of growing patterns. I turned to my favorite math book (Kathy Richardson) for help. On day 1, I modeled how a pattern can either repeat (which was beat into their brains until they cried- not really!) or it can grow and change. I modeled a pattern and asked what they noticed was happening. (insert crickets soundtrack here) I'm not exaggerating. Total blank looks staring at me. I went back to looking at the pattern unit- Remember this from…
