Teaching the concept of number lines to 2nd graders can be a difficult task. I’m always trying to find new and different ways to teach Math concepts to my students. After a Google search, I came across the retractable clothes line to use as a number line. Can you say, GENIUS! I also always try to figure out how to integrate my lesson with technology. Educreations is a wonderful app with multiple uses. As a teacher, you could use Educreations in every subject everyday. In this lesson, the students captured a picture of the number line from the retractable clothes line and inserted directly into Educreations. Next, the students labeled the missing pattern. Students were engaged and discussing within their groups the number patterns. Something as simple as a clothes line created innovating learning in my classroom!
