Going deeper with GO Math!

This is my second year teaching math using the GO math series. I love how it challenges the kids. It has so many great partner games incorporated within the math lessons. My students always beg for a fast finisher to be the game from the math lesson that day. We don't always have time to play the game though. We just started our shapes and fraction chapter. I think this chapter has to be very hands on. We will be using our math kits and shape manipulatives a lot during this chapter. I introduced the chapter yesterday so we had plenty of time to work with our math partners. We got to identify 3D shapes and count the faces.
