The boys and girls are working very hard this week, we’re learning new strategies in Math (addition and subtraction). Thinking and learning is every bit as challenging and difficult as reading, writing and doing!
“Why ARE you teaching so many different ways of doing the same problem?” I hear you ask!
Some very good and highly respected research shows that children who are flexible in their math thinking at an early age, more mathematically proficient, are the most likely to be successful in the Arithmetic subjects they’ll be doing in their academic future.
I’ve created a new “page” for you to learn about the Mathematical Practices that “the experts” have created. Our Standards Based Report Cards also include a grade for proficiency in these practices.
