This week we have started some great new math learning. Kids are learning all about base ten, our number system and how to add to 10. It is super easy to to add a number 10, 10+5=15. So If I want to figure out what 9+6 is I can turn the 9 into a 10 and then the 6 is a 5 and we have 15. 9+6=10+5. We have been doing a lot of trading in 10 ones for 1 ten and counting by 10s. The kids are really successful and having fun using so many manipulatives! We have also been practicing our math facts and reviewing shapes on Xtra math and Starfall!
