Well, back in the classroom, my students are working hard to balance both sides of the equal sign. We have been practicing in class and some of my kiddos are really struggling. In the past our first grade team has shared a scale that gives the students a great visual of this concept! Unfortunately, IT'S PACKED IN A BOX!
So today, I ordered another scale...we can always use two in first grade...right? Click on the picture below to see how I will use this in my class again this year!!!
