Launching the LINK Math Workshop- I Can Lists

I am so excited to fully launch the LINK Math Workshop in my Kindergarten classroom this year. So far, I have pictures and freebies to share from launching the L- Learning with Manipulatives. At this point in the year, it is mainly exploration, but with I Can Lists, I am starting to guide my kindergartners towards doing specific tasks.

Here are a few pictures of things they have figured out that they can do with snap cubes and pattern blocks:

I was so proud that someone decided to create our word of the week... the!

Then, I took their pictures and created I Can Lists. You can download them below if you'd like them. I try to do as much with real pictures of them as possible. They really enjoy seeing pictures of things that mean something to them, and I believe real pictures helps them to really "get it".

I printed these out a fourth of the size of a full page and laminated them to put in the Learning with Manipulatives Buckets.

If you would like more information on my LINK Math Workshop Management System, download the free preview at my Teachers Pay Teachers store. I am LOVING teaching this way!

Thank you for sharing the I Can... pictures and information. This will be great for getting my first grade students to explore manipulatives. It will mean more for them to see pictures.
