Today students were given a fact and without saying a word they had to walk around and find all the facts in their family. As they found each other they linked arms and shared why they were a fact family with the rest of the class. When asked to explain what a fact family was Aimie said, “A fact family has three numbers.” Katie added, “And those numbers are related.”
“There are four facts in a family. Two of them are addition and the other two are subtraction.” Said Joselena.
Wow! They are really understanding how it all works!
