We have been very excited about our learning in Math. We have successfully completed out first module Numbers to 10.
The students were immediately involved in purposeful and meaningful activities. They were engaged in math dialogues for example “These balloons are exactly the same.” “These are the same but a different size.”
They also learned cardinalities and have been practicing the counting sequence. “I put a pencil, a book, and an eraser, three things, in the backpack for school.” “I put five toys in the closet to keep at home”.
The students have been learning to order, count and write up to ten objects to answer how many questions from linear, to array, to circular, and finally to scattered configurations. Students have also used their understanding of relationships between numbers and know that each successive number name refers to a quantity that is one greater and that the number before is one less. The students used several strategies and tools to show their understanding of a concept. It has been a fabulous unit of learning in school!
