The more I read about Singapore Math, the more I find myself using the strategies in my classroom. Recently, we have been spending a lot of time using "Bar Models" or "Model Drawings." These bar models have served as a great visual representation of "Part-Part-Whole."
Bar Models in The Barnyard.
My students really enjoyed playing this game, which encouraged them to find missing parts to Bar Models. Each time they completed a Bar Model, they got to "collect" a farm animal (the best part!!)
Thanks for stopping by!
