Early School Year Focus on Landmark Numbers
Last year I began the math year with a focus on landmark numbers. The introduction proved to be helpful with regard to creating a community of math learners who had common language, patterns, tools, resources, and routines.
I will weave the landmark number lessons into the early year math curriculum again this year. In the days ahead I'll revisit this unit to revise, add, and enrich. In the meantime if you have ideas for change and enrichment, let me know.
