We worked on Doubles plus 1. It is being very hard for many in the class to grasp this concept. I was scheduled to teach it in one day and then teach doubles minus 1 on a second day, but we have spent more time on it. The children need to develop the number logic to understand this and other things like it in order to think numerically and manipulate numbers in their minds.
Today we read lots of books, made lots of words, had our practice spelling test, and ended up with a couple minutes at the end of the day for those who have unfinished work to work on completing it, while those who had all their work done could read books.
There is a great deal of excitement about the Halloween carnival on Wednesday night and also Halloween on Thursday night.
