How do I know when to regroup a subtraction sentence and when do I just subtract normally?
Look at those ones! Is there more on top or more on the floor? If the answer is: More on top...then no need to stop! Just subtract those ones normally! Then go to the tens and subtract those digits next! More on floor..go next door and get ten more! Knock, knock, knock at the tens place and ask for a ten. Take that ten and turn it into ten ones. Now you can subtract those ones!
How can I find a subject and verb in a sentence?
Always ask who, who, who is this sentence about? That is the subject! Then ask what, what, what is that person/thing doing? That is the verb! Who, who, who--subject What, what, what--verb!
There was a class of 21 students, 4 who are ELL students, 5 receiving Special Education services, and 6 who are receiving free and reduced lunch. How, as a teacher, will you meet each student individually so that learning is happening as well as social emotional issues?
I would first learn more about each child and who they are as a person. What is their home life like? Parent involvement? What motivates them to learn? By first creating that friendship and bond then learning can happen. If students do not feel connected by the person they are around for the majority of the day, learning can be a bit harder for all.
