Reflection- making learning easier

Today I learned that I was making maths extra difficult by going straight to using number properties. I realised this after our warm up one day where many of the class didn't understand. The next day I introduced a game using place value blocks and it was MUCH easier.

Because of this learning I need to make sure that I always start with materials, rather than going straight to number properties.

The next step in my learning is to always modify whatever I'm planning on teaching by encorporating concrete activites into the plan.
