Ok I know somewhere there is a more experienced teacher who can help me. I am first year teacher. Funny thing is I am the behavior teacher who has been forced (not the best of words but it will work) to also teach the kinder resource kids. I wont go into detail about why they are resource so soon but they are mainly behavior issue kids as well. All year they have been learning their numbers. I feel fairly competent in saying they can count 1-20. Their on to on correspondence still needs a little work but I need to get these boys started adding single digits. I have tried the manipulatives, I tried making it a game still they just dont get adding. I will ask what is 1+1 and they give me 5 different answers none of which are correct. These boys are very concrete so I am guessing that I just havent found that right technique. HELP!!!!
