Watching this I am thinking about how we often rush to the algorithm instead of taking the time to really cement the important concepts. We need to spend more time actually letting them physically skip count objects before we take those away. I didn’t realize how early on we start teaching proportional reasoning.
I had also not made the connection that proportional reasoning will help with my teaching of rational numbers this Spring. I am excited to learn more!!
