Reflection: Rules and Consequences Math Blast...It's A Numbers Game - Section 1: Getting Started: The First Day of Math Blast


Math Blast is a great way to get the day rolling, students engaged, and, well, just fun! I use this to not only reconfirm things we are learning, but to support prior knowledge, develop mathematical practices and to pre-teach upcoming ideas and concepts. The blast also support all learners, as it can be differentiated to the level of each student's skills and knowledge. I also encourage students to support each other in their table groups.

I encourage you to take ownership over your own Math Blast. Use my template and make it your own. I play disco - that is my room theme (and the music is safe for school), but play what you want. No matter how silly the music, the students will engage. I love to dance around the room checking their work!

One idea to support teacher movement, invest in a PowerPoint clicker, they are about $20 but it allows you to be anywhere and advance the slides.

Most of all HAVE FUN and make MATH FUN! It's a BLAST!
