Subtraction with regrouping can sometimes feel like a nightmare, but it doesn’t have to be!
Audience – K-5 Posts
How do we get to a point where the students own the eight mathematical practices?
This week, on our website, we are launching a new tab – video tutorials!
How effective are number talks and how do I know that kids are getting the strategy?
These fun games and activities can be played as a family or with your students to help them exercise and build their visual memory muscles!
What happens if students can’t even visualize the word, let alone spell it inside out? We live in a “plugged in” culture, where students spend extended periods of time consuming visual images. This severely limits their visual memory or their ability to access and recall images and real-life situations that happened to them.
Ask kids what they had for dinner yesterday – they probably can’t remember! The ever-increasing amount of screen-time definitely has an adverse impact on students’ lives and it is quite damaging to their development of visual memory. Because visual memory has a profound effect on student development, we want it to be strong as we start to look at spelling.
Our theme for this new school year is transferring as much ownership as possible to the students. This activity will challenge how you think about instruction!
