Yesterday my Youngers (my 1st grade students) used dice to practice their math facts. It is ponderous how two cubes can reveal a great depth of information on the math understandings and levels of a child. When he/she rolls a die, does he/she have count each dot? Does he/she start with the bigger number and count on? Does he/she use facts he/she knows to help him/her add the two dice? Can he/she print the number correctly? What facts does he/she know?
|I can print my numbers correctly.|
|So happy and proud!|
