Elm Class Update
New York News Compass
It was another short week full of hard work in the Elm class!
Students noticed that they only needed to look at the number in the ones place to make another ten. For example, in the number 42, you only need 8 more to make another ten because 2 + 8 = 10.
We then learned the game Make 10 and played with a partner. Students set out 4 rows of five cards and looked for combinations that make 10 when you add them together.
We also read Ish about a boy who learns to embrace his work as it is and let go of feeling it has to be "right". Second graders took to this idea and showed more patience with their work in progress.
