Hi there! It's Sandy from
When we get back from break, we're starting subtraction with... wait for it... REGROUPING when we get back!!! Eeeeeek! This is always a tough concept for my 2nd graders, especially in the beginning!
Enter- Explain Everything!
It's a (paid) app on the iPad that allows you to explain everything- or anything you want. In this case, subtraction with regrouping!
Check it out:
I created it, exported it to YouTube, and I'm going to have my kiddos watch this on their iPads for their seat work station on Monday. I feel like watching this video will go over a little better than me trying to keep their attention whole group.
But you could even project a video like this onto the board or SMART board whole group (if you only have one iPad).
There's also this app:
Educreations! It's very similar to Explain Everything (but it a bit more limited) and it's FREE!
Next step is to have the KIDS start creating these videos to show their thinking and learning!
