Math Equations.

My class has been writing number sentences since school started while making  different ways to make numbers up to 10.  Today, I introduced the word equation *gasp* to my 6 year olds.  I had never done this in my five years teaching first grade, but the kids took to it like pigs in mud.  They got so excited about the word equation, by the end of the lesson I heard them using the word themselves.  For example, "Look at my equations that I made!" or "I made up more equations than you."  I'm including a picture of the beginning "equations" that we did on the carpet in whole group before we went to the table for independent practice.
