Tweet Arrays

I am back...breaking the double post rule a day . I could not wait to show you what my kids did this week!  It is very Tweet :)

We started with using many of the manipulatives we have in our classroom. Labeling row s and columns. Defining arrays (pre-assessment).
Created array books, used array task cards and took a few post-assessments....and so much more!

According to my kids an array is... (I copied these from their assessment sheets).
- Soldiers lined up in rows
- Organized ways of putting something away
- Something that is put together in rows and columns and it can help you count good
- Some rows and columns that are put together and help you count stuff
- A quick and organized of arranging something
- It has rows and columns and looks like an army of soldiers

I see a theme here....rows, columns and soldiers :)  Not sure what I said about soldiers, but it made a great impression.

Something so tweet!  Find here.
You can find all of these in there :)

What do you think? 

My tweet son will help me pick a winner. Leave me some love. I will pick 2 winners tomorrow night.

  18. I tell my students to imagine rows an columns as if they are sitting in a movie theater. The people next to them are in their ROW. The people sitting in front or behind them are in a column.

    This is a super-cute set! Thanks for offering a freebie!
