### Figure Me Out!

I got this idea from my peer teacher, Nina.  It's a great way for students to share about themselves. I think it would be perfect for a first day of school activity.  I would start by having the students first write the numbers.  Later, once we have learned about multiplication and division, I would have them create the equations.  Finally, they can put it all together in time for Open House.

It can be easily adapted for the younger grades by using addition and/or subtraction.  It can be adapted for older grades with exponents, multi-step problems, and including fractions or decimals.  Thanks to my friend Nannette for inspiring me with her sample.

10. Very nice Idea

11. Absolutely love this idea!!

12. Great idea. I will title this Math About Me.

13. Very cute for Open House!!!

14. Excellent way to expose children to the numbers all around them and get them doing equations. Love it!

15. Going to adapt this for my French students. Merci : )

16. This is an amazing idea! Thank you for sharing :)

17. I'm so glad you and your teaching partner liked my Figure Me Out activity! It really gives my 4th graders a new outlook on math during the first week of school. I think parents love the displays even more than they do.

18. what was your objective? I'm still in school and I'm just trying to get a hand of making objectives.

19. that is amazing

20. thats a great ideia
