I had the pleasure of visiting Pioneer Elementary in March. Wow, the art teacher was a burst of creativity, working on such incredible projects with the kids. Many other teachers were doing amazing work, as well. See some of it below! Click on each photo to see it in greater detail. (more…)

I’m speaking at the Indiana state conference of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics on Sunday and Monday. Here’s a lesson plan created by educator Margaret Goldsmith, who is co-presenting with me. She’ll cover the lesson plan at the end of my session talk.
Click here to download the lesson plan: One Is A Snail.
Thank you to Margaret for sharing. We met because she was teaching workshops on the book. She’s so creative as an educator. I’m her fan and it’s because of her math enthusiasm that I attended my first NCTM conference earlier this year. Love the vibe of the math education world. Just zaps my brain cells and makes me think, smile, and create.
These are from Harrison’s halls. The notes are from a workshop given by Margaret Goldsmith, who coordinates math literacy. Hooray, Margaret!
I had such fun at this school near Berne. Just look at a few images of what they did with ONE IS A SNAIL, THE BUMBLEBEE QUEEN, and PUT ON SOME ANTLERS AND WALK LIKE A MOOSE.
Indiana Mathematics Standards
(Why every Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade teacher in Indiana needs her/his own copy ONE IS A SNAIL, TEN IS A CRAB.)
ONE IS A SNAIL, TEN IS A CRAB provides a fun and creative way to fulfill the standards below. For ideas on how to extend the book to fulfill standards, particularly problem solving, see the projects used by others in the educator’s section. Worksheets of related math problems are also available in the educator’s section.
Standard 1: Number Sense
Students understand the relationship between numbers and quantities up to 10, and that a set of objects has the same number in all situations regardless of the position or arrangement of the objects.
K.1.1 Match sets of objects one-to-one.
K.1.2 Compare sets of up to ten objects and identify whether one set is equal to, more than, or less than another.
K.1.3 Know that larger numbers describe sets with more objects in them than sets described by smaller numbers. (more…)
