What's This All About?

It is my goal to record video clips and pictures of events and lessons in our classroom. My hope is for you to see and hear what our kindergarten students are learning each week in our classroom! Please let me know what you think! :)

Math Strategies

Our kindergarten students have been working very hard to learn strategies for solving addition and subtraction equations. After spending time working with each strategy, students are now able to select their favorite strategy that will allow them to efficiently solve their problem. The strategies our students have learned are:

  • Use your fingers.
  • Use manipulatives.
  • Draw a picture.
  • Use a number line.
