Welcome to our Math Module Website! We are glad you have joined us.
We are “The Wendys” a.k.a. W1 and W2… Wendy Bruttomesso, First Grade Teacher and Wendy Watkins K-1 Special Education Teacher. We teach an inclusion first grade classroom at Candor Elementary School in Upstate New York. Together we have 35 years of teaching experience and have been co-teaching for 4 years.
This website was created after receiving a grant from our local teacher center, the Tioga County Teacher Center. We found during our years of implementing the NYS Math Modules that many of the activities/worksheets were not developmentally appropriate or engaging for our students. Therefore, we created new lessons with different material formats that incorporated technology whenever possible to better present the information. Many of the worksheets we recreated use larger spaces, more engaging pictures and an increased area to do written work. This was done because we have seen our students struggle with materials from the modules day after day and we knew there needed to be a change in order for our students to succeed.
We made materials, worksheets, lesson plans, games, rhymes and songs posters/sheets to use within the module and have shared them with you on this site. We have invested many long hours developing these materials and sincerely hope that what we are providing saves you time and energy because now it’s just a click away. Enjoy!
We would like to extend a very big THANK YOU to Matt Gelder our technology guru for all your help and support!!
