Well I have certainly learned a lot this week! We are into our second week of problem solving and I was quite delighted with how well my little kiddos seemed to be grasping the various strategies. I wanted to get some our learning up on the wall - visual reminders of how much we are learning. I wanted the kids to solve the problem using a number line, tens frames, and drawing a picture. That should be easy right? Nope!! It was what stumped them that surprised me. They couldn't draw tens frames!! This
Then we did a super cute bulletin board display. In keeping with our movie theme I chose 12 different movie characters and made a problem for each character. The kids each picked their favourite character and then did the corresponding problem. They decorated their character and added some glitter - because everything looks better with glitter - even Superman!
So the great news is that I have added 59 pages to my problem solving unit "Problem Solving Super Stars" - just click HERE if you're interested:) I added another problem solving booklet and all the problems and characters to make your own bulletin board!
Bye for now,
