I have been so impressed by my mathematicians lately. They have really been grasping the idea of tens and ones, which will be crucial to their understanding of almost all math in the future. This week we have been lucky to have a pre-service teacher from Columbia College join us. She taught the students how to use their tens sticks and ones cubes. As she was teaching, I got to sit back, take a few pictures, and marvel at how much these students have grown in the past 3 months.
We are mathematicians, readers, writers, scientists, teammates, and first graders. We spend our days exploring, listening, and learning. We know that learning can feel uncomfortable sometimes, but as a team, we support each other and help each other reach our goals. Join us on our journey!
