Great Addition Videos to Build Conceptual Understanding

Posted on December 13, 2010. Filed under: Digital Learners, Elementary math, Multiple Intelligences | Tags: , , , |


Here are some great videos to introduce addition.  I use them as part of the mini lesson and then facilitate a discussion about what it means to add something.  These are great ways to build conceptual understanding.  I then pull small guided math groups to further that discussion.

Great Subtraction Videos for Mini-Lessons

Posted on December 12, 2010. Filed under: Digital Learners, Elementary math, Multiple Intelligences | Tags: , , , , |


Here are a few great videos for introducing subtraction.  I use these in the first part of the mini-lesson.  I  show these and then facilitate a discussion about the concept of subtraction.  These videos are good for building conceptual understanding.  I would then pull students into guided math groups and go further into activities that build conceptual understanding of subtraction.  I love the Farmer John Video.  This is a great way to act out subtraction up to ten with students.  These videos correlate with the common core operations and thinking domain for grades k,1 and 2.
