Daily Guide for Math • Framework designed to help us get all important components of Math in everyday • Consists of Daily Spiral Review, Direct Instruction, Writing Activity, and Problem Solving/Reasoning
Comparing and Classifying Objects * Identify and describe common geometric objects *Identify, describe, sort, compare, and classify objects by size, shape, roundness, number of vertices, and other attributes
Comparing/Classifying Objects • Daily Spiral Review • people sorting • use attribute blocks • play “Sorting Rule” game • math pocket chart riddles
Comparing/Classifying Objects • Direct Instruction/Standards Based • Circus Shapes by Stuart Murphy • 3 Little Firefighters by Stuart Murphy • Keynote presentation • Math Pocket Chart Riddles • Sorting Circles w/attribute blocks • Draw A..., It can be... pocket charts
