Most of the time now I will handle my year 1 class in the mathematic lab. different from the computer lab before, the floor doesn't have tiles. So, I cannot use the tiles as before to do some addition and subtraction with my pupils.
Together, we made an addition/subtraction board! Yep, I said together because I let my year 1 pupils help me to prepare the board. I just wanted them to have the "ownership" feeling towards the board. I believe the will appreciate it better.
It's not that difficult, just prepare a board if you have or maybe you can change it to manila card or any relevant. Then, colourful tape to make a line and it just take around 8 to 10 minutes to prepare that. For the board, I was not even used any ruler in order to make the lines on the board useing the tape. Just make it simple.
