Dot Addition & Writing on Paper

While working on understanding addition, the students used at least three dot cards to equal certain numbers. Then, they glued down the cards and wrote equations. The students are really getting good at number combinations.

As we continue to work with paper, today we used various types of writing utensils to figure out which type of paper crayon wrote on best, marker wrote on best, and pencil wrote on best. Then, students decided which type of paper would be best to write a letter on. Which type to do you think would be best for painting on? How about for making an envelope with? There's so much to explore!
