Are we talking 6-4 or are we talking regrouping?

Use base ten blocks and show them hlw to write that step in the problem. Do this for each step. I then fade to having them draw a representation of the base 10 blocks until they can do regrouping and subtraction without tbem.

Deloitte Worst Interview Experience.

1. Interviewer late by 45 mins, and unapologetic about it.
2. HRs took a week’s time to arrange my interview, just to know it’s a case of profile mismatch.
3. They just picked a keyword from my profile and didn’t even bother to have a look at exact profile.

After all this they still have the audacity to tell that we don’t compare ourselves with others due to our brand value. Time to reconsider your mythical facts.

What’s your views fishes ?

In my school periods are 42 minutes long. By the time kids arrive to class and get settled, I have 38 on-task minutes, at best. It is impossible to get through the curriculum without leaving most kids in the dust so we pick and choose which standards to emphasize and which are expendable. Problem is compounded by the fact that the teachers in prior grades have the same problem, so kids reach me without foundation knowledge and skills. Have tried many strategies. Suggestions???
