This first student will demonstrate the number sense strategy pictured above. One of the things I’m working on with my firsties is explaining HOW they solve their problem, and WHY that strategy works. They are coming along well…click on the picture to watch her solve the problem.
This student utilizes his understanding of tens and ones to mentally add two digit numbers. With support, he explains his thinking and writes it out on the board. Click on the picture to check out his thinking! 🙂
Teaching math is SO FUN! 🙂
I hope you’re enjoying it with your kiddos too! 🙂
