Answer:

First, we need to find out how many dogs April has altogether. April has 3 big dogs and 2 small dogs. That is 3 + 2, so April has 5 dogs altogether. If each dog has 4 paws, we can solve this in several different ways. We can skip count. We can use repeated addition. We can draw a picture to model the problem. Any of these ways would help us solve that 5 dogs with 4 paws each have 20 paws total. Our answer would be something like this: April's 5 dogs have 20 paws in all.

Answer:

Some of the most important things to include in a lesson plan are the standards, objectives, vocabulary, introduction (engage background knowledge), mini-lesson, workshop/practice, higher-order thinking questions and evidence of learning. Not all lesson plans will look the same, but several of these components are recurrent throughout all subjects.

Answer:

I believe that students need someone who they can trust. When a student feels cared for and has their basic needs met, they will be able to learn. A student that does not feel safe and loved will not have the right mindset to learn and grow!
