I had the pleasure of joining Mrs. Antonucci’s grade 1/2 class at W.H. Ballard for some Number Talks. We are working on helping the students to articulate their own thinking as the solve mental math problems. Today, in the photo, you can see we were working on understanding the associative property in conjunction with a “make 10” strategy. The feedback from the class was that I will need to come up with something much more challenging because they are amazing little mathematicians!
