Okay y'all, I am keeping it real here when I tell you that I almost hyperventilate when the time comes to teach 3 digit subtraction with regrouping to my 60 RtI babies! You add in a full moon this week and it is the perfect storm! However, there is a site that has saved me from breathing out of a paper bag for years now! My RtI and Inclusion kiddos are often very visual and need to truly see how math works. However, staying focused and using base-ten blocks at the same time can be a little or maybe A LOT more than I can expect of them. So, this presentation is a happy little compromise! To save you some trial and error and a boat load of time, I made a little tutorial to go with this FABULOUS site. Click HERE to check it out! They have TONS of virtual manipulatives, people, TONS, I say! This is how the site looked on my SMARTboard today.
The kids sat in the floor with their question sheet on a clipboard. We built and solved the problems step by step. It was a magical moment when one baby said, "I finally know what this is all about!" As Junie B. would say, "My eyes got a little bit of wet in them!" I hope this is helpful to you! Enjoy!
I would love to hear from you if you give this a try!
