Teacher Feature: 3 Teacher Chicks and FREEbies!





Hello there TBA! Happy April Fools Day!   I am so pumped to get the chance to post on this amazing blog!  My name is Amy Hoffmann and I am the third grade chick over at 3 Teacher Chicks.  We also have Gretchen Kassel who teaches second grade and Shelley Snow who teaches kindergarten.  Primary grades represent! :)

So have you heard the buzz about Singapore Math? Our district has been teaching Singapore Math for the past couple of years and our math scores have shot through the roof!  We LOVE Singapore Math!  It was definitely a little challenging to implement, but my teaching has changed drastically because of this program.  I wish I would have been taught this way because I would have understood math!

I have some awesome free resources for you Singapore Math teachers AND teachers who have no idea what I am talking about.  Singapore Math is basically a math program that focuses on number sense and a deep understanding of place value.  Students are taught mental math strategies and model drawing to complete word problems.  Basically, kiddos are taught the WHY so they understand the HOW.  The program builds on itself, delving deep into concepts before moving on to the next objective.  Students master objectives and then build upon them in consecutive grades.

A big part of Singapore Math is Model Drawing.  Below you will find some awesome resources that you can use in your classroom even if you don't use this program.



One of my friends and I created Singapore Math tutorial videos that my district uses for parents and new teachers.  We have even had other districts ask for our videos to teach their teachers.
