Finding meaningful math workshop activities can be tough...but sometimes there are benefits that we didn't even anticipate.  I thought I was reinforcing addition with regrouping--but it turns out that much more was going on in math class today!

my favorite addition math stations.    This one is called "in and out".  The students simply drop a handful of cubes onto the in and out board.  They record the number in the circle for the first addend and the cubes outside of the circle as the 2nd addend.  Then solve the number sentence.  The kids really like it!
