I wanted to give you a little update this week on what I trialled in my maths class and how it went.
I started teaching Multiplication this week. I have integrated the teaching of the strand of Measurement, in particular Time.
What did I do this week to foster 'Acquisition of Language'.
1) Integrating strand into my teaching allows for the children to be exposed to rich language, and an abundance of language, basically every day. In terms of time there are so many words the children need to understand to be able to do the activity I have for them, words like: Quarter to, half past, minutes past, hour, second, minute etc.
2) I have made all my follow up activities require that the children do a step-by-step explanation of how they solved a problem.
