Bridges Math In Kindergarten and 7 Habits

Our district adopted Bridges Math for grades K-5.  We have been using it this week and the students absolutely love it.  We did a lot of sorting this week and really focused hard on the word attribute.  Today we all got to take off one shoe and discussed different ways to sort our shoes.  The students love think-pair-share to discuss different attributes with their friends.  Work places is another component of the Bridges Math.  The students loved exploring some new work places "centers" this week.  Number corner is another component of the program.  I was amazed at how much they absorbed this week of five frames, ten frames, and counting on from the 5 frame.  I think I am going to love this new math program!
Next week we will start our September Math Journals...check out our TPT store for a great easy math journal to help your students become great problem solvers!!
Since we are a Leader In Me School, we have been introducing the 7 habits this past week.  We read a book for each habit and did some kind of fun activity to help remind us of this habit.  The students loved signing their name to our kindergarten pledge.

Looks like a nice curriculum if it includes so many hands on learning activities!
