Differentiated Math

Alicia (lead teacher of the Oaks): In math, the Tori practiced the “subtract from 10 strategy” (a mental math strategy for 2-digit numbers) and practiced adding three 1-digit numbers. We then talked about equal groups and spent time focusing on the math language that sets us up for multiplication. For example, three groups of 5 equals five groups of 3.


The Ellipsoids practiced mentally adding 1s and 10s to numbers within 100. They also practiced taking some from one number to make the other number 100 in order to mentally add numbers greater than 100. M practiced drawing models to solve pre-algebraic word problems. He also developed his mental math strategies for adding and subtracting numbers to the thousands and mental math for multiplying and dividing a two digit and one digit number
