I was sitting in a first grade classroom today and watched a cool lesson on teaching number lines. The teachers did a great job using manipulatives, word problems, and using the SmartBoard. Since we use iPads in the classroom, I thought I would check out an App that may be helpful.
Teaching Number Lines, which is an excellent tool for counting, ordering, adding, and subtracting. This App provides students with a unique way to interact and act out the concept of a number line. I love the fact that the App also encourages kids!
We know from brain research that not every student learns the same way. Using this iPad App can provide students with visual and tactile ways of representing the concept of a number line. This can be an extremely helpful strategy to help all students learn the concept of number lines.
