Morning Math Board
The purpose of the morning math board is to involve students in highly engaging math activities that can be used to incorporate all math strands into the curriculum every day. It is designed to give students daily hands-on practice so that once a concept is introduced it can be reinforced throughout the school year.
At the beginning of the year it is necessary to spend 2-3 days introducing students to each math concept that will be taught in greater depth later in the school year. Each day after that 2 student helpers are selected to perform all activities on the Morning Math Board. The helpers perform the tasks that are listed on two sets of job cards.
During a morning meeting time after all of the tasks have been performed, all students gather on the area around the Morning Math Board. The teacher leads the class in a discussion of each section of the math board. Students are given the opportunity to agree with or challenge the answers on the board.
