I gave the class a short quiz today on double digit subtraction. I showed all four strategies that we have been practicing in class. They could use any one that they liked. I will look forward to checking these over. If I see that more than 30% of our class are struggling, I will keep working on this concept. If we have less than that, I will move forward with some word problems and other challenging tasks with subtraction. See the pictures below to see our strategies.
Thank you Ben for sharing some Oreos today that went along with your write and tell. It was a fun surprise!
Next week Friday is Valentine's Day. We will celebrate our friends in the class. We do have 27 students. If your child wants to include a treat or surprise for their classmates with their cards, please keep in mind nut allergies. Thank you so much. I will make it a fun day for them!
