As far as the subtraction with regrouping, I use a strategy for those students that could not quite understand the "go next door to get 10 more" concept. It's as simple as CROSS, CHANGE, STICK. So for 23-19. Instead of saying go next door to get a set of 10 from the 2 and make it a 1 and make the 9 a 19, Just say CROSS (out the 2) CHANGE (the 2 to a 1) STICK( the the set of ten you took to the 9). After a while the kids just do it by habit. They have NO problems now. I wish I could do illustrations.

I was able to squeeze a little extra in during our first grade year so we have been flying in second! Then we were able to hit the ground running at the beginning of the year since I knew exactly where we should begin and things that I could skip. I am enjoying the fun while it lasts unless they loop me again! :) Thanks ladies!Hope Kinghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04756691602899978959noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4681076760124023950.post-74541097193487328092011-11-11T08:06:12.499-05:002011-11-11T08:06:12.499-05:00wow! you're into multiplication already???
