Emily has been independently practicing all the strategies we have been learning in our ALiM group at school at home by herself! She is really stretching her brain and becoming a super mathematician!! Check out the amazing poster she made. Go Emily!

Group 2 have been learning about tidy numbers and rounding numbers to the nearest ten to make it easier to add and subtract. We can make the numbers with materials, break numbers into parts to make tidy numbers and then add or subtract to find the answer.
This is the strategy that we have been learning.
All of the groups have been learning their doubles and have been playing Doubles Bingo. We are getting really fast at just 'knowing' our doubles now.

Groups 2 and 3 have also been learning the doubles plus and minus 1 strategy to work out unknown facts. This is the chart we made to explain the strategy and to remind us when we try and teach it to others in the class.

We are learning all about the facts to 10. We use different numbers of double sided counters in a cup and spread them on the table. We look for groups of numbers. today we are using 10 counters to help us learn the facts of 10.
We are working on just knowing our facts to 10. Today we had 10 pieces of multilink in a cup. We put some on the table and our partner had to guess how many were still hiding in the cup. We have to share how we know by saying the basic fact.

We have been looking at different ways to learn our basic facts. Today Group 2 used the Basic Facts Mats to show our fact in lots of different ways.
We are learning to:
'Make it' with different materials
'Draw it' with our own pictures or diagrams
'Say it' to help remember it
'Write it" in numbers and words
Here are some of our first attempts!
