For the last few days, the students have been working with dot cards, training their brains to 'see' a quantity rather than having to touch each dot and count on.
Using a variety of dot cards and ten frame cards, the students are practicing using the cubes to demonstrate how they can create a quantity that is MORE or LESS or the SAME as the quantity shown on the card.
To adults, this seems like such an easy activity, but there are a number of students who are challenged to understand these mathematical terms. They need to continue to refer to the original card to remember that they are making quantities for that number.
Lots of smiles when they were successful!
