Notes on Six Elements
Teaching students to document their thinking is an on-going affair.
In this Primary 1 (Singapore) or Year 2 (UK) lesson on addition of three one-digit number by making ten, a small entry such as this is sufficient, if journaling is a daily affair. I suppose that is why it is called a journal - a daily record. | Six Elements #4
