Number Stories Tech'd Out

This week in math one of our learning targets has been to create and solve number stories. We used an app called, DoodlecastPro to help us show our learning for this target. Doodlecast Pro  is an app which allows us to record ourselves while also recording our writing and drawings.

After learning about the 3 main parts of a number story (numbers, words (story), and a question), students were given 2 numbers and a bag of manipulatives. With their partner they had to show their numbers with their manipulatives and come up with a story to match. They then recorded themselves and also added the number sentence to match. The results were phenomenal and compared to the math journal version, this was sooooooo much more engaging. I can see where kiddos will definitely remember this vs. black and white, uninteresting page in our math journal.
