Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Some bright points

One of the best decisions I’ve made recently is to record myself reading a lot of the little easy readers for our listening center. After listening to the libritos so many times, the kids are way more apt to pick them up and start reading them by themselves…. and more apt to pick up other books like them and attempt reading those, too. Very cool.

I also had a freaking mind-blowing moment yesterday explaining borrowing in subtraction only with manipulatives. “We need to take away 6 ones, but there are only 5… how can we take away another one?!?!?!??!?! ahhhh!! MATH”
