Well, I’ve watched this video three times now and I think I need to watch it at least five more times. I love, love, love how this presented to the audience.
My take aways for when I am teaching multiplication:
- I need to stop stealing the opportunity to let my students use concrete tools! They should be available every SINGLE DAY.
- Rushing to the traditional algorithm is a huge mistake. I am thinking we need to have some serious conversations about when to introduce this.
- I need to let the students explore. Let me say that one again, I need to let the students EXPLORE. So many times when they hit a struggling point I feel this need to jump in and tell…I need a muzzle for my mouth!
What did you take away from this?
