Question:

How can you encourage students who don't like to write to build their skills?

Inactive

Answer:

Elementary school students need to write often to build their writing muscles and prepare for high school and college. To encourage those students who do not enjoy writing, I like to give them fun writing prompts about creative topics, or opinion based writing about a topic they get invested in. This helps them stay motivated, and work past the difficulties of spelling/handwriting when it gets tough.

Question:

How do you help a second grade student understand regrouping in subtraction (borrowing)?

Answer:

To help a second grade student understand regrouping (borrowing), it can be incredibly helpful to use manipulatives such as base 10 blocks to show them what happens when they move quantities from a place value in order to subtract. They can also draw this out so that they conceptually understand why they are borrowing or regrouping - which in turn will help the student be more accurate and have a stronger fluency with math facts.

Answer:

It helps young readers to summarize their reading vocally as they proceed through the text, to visualize what they are reading by recording the setting/characters/problem/solution, and use context clue strategies to discover the meaning of new words.
