We like mathematical story books. Pulled out today “Alison Hubble, the girl who doubled”.
Then I asked Mya to write down all the equasions in the book and see if she can solve each one before she turned the page to the next one.
She made a mistake on 4th one, I asked to check if she can spot the mistake and fix it. She couldn’t correct it, but she knew where it was. I really wanted to step in and “explain” but stopped myself. I took the materials out and asked her to lay all the equasions out instead, so she can feel them.
She went up to 32, wanted to keep going. Managed 64, then got stuck again. We need to work on Place value more. Gave her a little hint, not to ruin the feel of achievement. She was very proud of herself when she managed the last one.
