Just fooling around with Jing, I made a screen cast that talks about using algebra "from the get go" with kids.

Eventually there will be a webpage on Crewton Ramone's House of Math with some of these pictures and this screencast. Also when I have more time you will see all the pictures with written descriptions and perhaps some additional information not covered in the screencast. When you get to my house of math, click the algebra, square #'s, and problem solving tabs for more...but there is also a lesson on combining like terms which may not be as easy to find...

But this is a great fast way to take a bunch of pictures and make them make sense...

Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question...or find me on Face Book where we can have more of a dialogue.

Also for more right here on this blog here is a post about actually using algebra to teach basic operations not just incorporating it...
