We have been working on building number concept and a true foundation of 10. Today we started to put all this together. To help parents understand what we are doing, I have made the following video to share the strategies that we are working on in class. We are starting to learn with numbers that we can manage, and once we get fluid we will increase the value of the numbers. I tell the kids it's like learning to a flip on a balance beam - we work with the bean just off the floor first and then go to the tall beam! It was a strong start to the process!
