This year, we are using Longman Mathematics, which is an ESL book, but works well for students struggling in math due to its focus on math vocabulary.
We have finished Chapters 1 and 2, which were a review of how to say, read, and write cardinal and ordinal numbers. Chapter 3 was a quick review of how to round numbers. Now that we have reviewed these critical concepts, we are ready to move onto calculations! We will start with addition and focus on improving calculator skills as wells as increasing understanding of word problems.
Encourage your students to help add up your grocery cart, balance your checkbook, or use small amounts of money as much as possible.
