Math Workshop with Video Illustration

In this video, you get a glimpse of the math workshop in class 3-307. We were working with Mrs. Manos on number stories. We reviewed the steps to solving these problems.

First We made sure we understood the problem because if you can’t understand it – you can’t solve it!

Second we discussed the strategies that we could use to solve the problems. Our strategies included:1. Using counters such as base ten blocks 2. Using a number model 3. Solving a simpler problem 4. Using a table or chart or 5. Drawing a picture.

Next we used our strategies to figure out the answers (look at our exciting video for highlights).

Finally we checked our answers to make sure they worked. We learned a lot during our lesson and independent work. Thank you Mrs. Manos for helping us with our strategies and thank you Mr. Rhys for capturing it all!

  3. […] As a class, we are going to create a “video illustration” to go with our persuasive essay to the Department of Education. A video illustration is a short video that adds sounds and pictures to help communicate what is in our writing — like the video we made for the Math Workshop blog post. […]
