Begin with a conversation…
So often we don’t “talk” about
math enough with our students!
Start this lesson by putting up one of the penguin picture prompts.
Ask students how many penguins have gone swimming? How do you know? How can we prove or check that?
See what they come up with. Write their thoughts down. If they don’t get the correct answer immediately...great! Discuss where they went wrong and how to fix the answer!
Then pick a practice page and see if students can do it independently!
