Students with limited number sense
As a fifth grade educator, we are asked to “expose” students to grade level instruction and standards, even if they have a very limited understanding of numbers. While I do like to focus on student strengths and meet them where they are, I am wondering if the benefit of “exposing” them to grade level instruction and standards. Is there research, or your own experiences, of using this approach? For example, I work in a co-taught classroom and several students are still working with adding and subtracting numbers within 20. Some have difficulty counting back by 3. They have to re start each time to see what number they would say next. 16-3….counting back…While I am also instructing them on how to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators. Just want to know your thoughts…..
