All About Me With a Math Twist

The beginning of the school year is always a great time to get to know your students.  But really, is there a bad time to get to know your students better?  Here's how I get to know students in my math classroom.

All About Me activity with a math twist is a great digital activity to get to know your students better.

Sometimes get-to-know-you activities seem better suited as a language arts activity with the writing and speaking standards.  Sometimes they don't seem to connect to any academic skills.  While I know how very important it is to use activities of this nature to build a classroom community and get to know my students, I really love when they connect to our learning too.  That is what I created these Math About Me activities.

Students will tell about the numbers that describe them  (their age, number of people in their family, etc.)  A great get to know you activity in the math classroom.

One Activity - Three Goals

I'm all about double and triple dipping as long as it's not with my chips and salsa.  But when it comes to classroom activities I LOVE when an activity has 2 or 3 purposes.  The more the better.  That is the case with the Math About Me digital activities.

Goal 1: Get to Know Your Students

With this fun and engaging digital activity, you have the opportunity to get to know your students and some facts about them and their family.  This is a great way to build connections in your classroom.

Goal 2: Informal Assessment of Math Skills

Within the Math About Me activity, students will be working with numbers in a variety of ways.  This is a great way to informally assess your students math skills and get a little insight into where they are, what they do well, and what they might be struggling with.

Goal 3: Technology Skills

This All About Me activity is a digital activity that uses Google Slides.  Through the activity students will learn and practice typing and using text boxes, clicking and completing a drag and drop function.  All of these are skills we will use with other digital activities throughout the year.  So while the ultimate goal is getting to know my students, I can also use this as a great opportunity to begin teaching how to use the Google apps and complete basic technology functions.

Math About Me for 3rd & 4th Grade

I created a second version of Math About Me for 3rd & 4th grade students.  While the get to know you parts of the activity are similar to the version for younger students, the math aspects are not.  Students will use "their numbers" and calculate 10 more and 100 more as well as writing equations with numbers related to their life.
