  • Second Grade Multiplication Stories

    Second graders were introduced to multiplication through the story, 1 + 1 = 5 and Other Unlikely Additions by David LaRochelle.  We created and illustrated our own multiplication stories and narrated then with an iPad app called Tellagami.  The link to the video below is a compilation of these video shorts.

    First Grade: Many Ways to Represent a Number

  • First graders explored multiple ways to represent a number with base ten blocks.  The trading of ones for tens is a skill essential for multi digit addition and subtraction.  Students used the camera on the iPad to document their work and then used the Story Me app to put their images together.
