Choosing Math Models in SK

The SKs are doing just beautifully! They are really enjoying their math classes. This week they focussed on subtraction word problems and finding multiply strategies. The children practised using concrete models (or equations) and picture models (using drawings of objects to represent numbers) to solve the questions at hand. These simple concepts form the basis of much of their math thinking to come. It is great to see them having so much fun with the process. A special shout out to Camilla who shared her math work with a visitor this week. Our visitor was extremely impressed at the clear understanding all the children displayed. Well done SKs. Keep up the good work!
