7 days. 168 Hrs. 4032 Minutes.
The opening of a new week full of surprises also means an afternoon spent with the crew from Taft Elementary. Its a nice contrast hitting the books on the weekly to exercise our minds in a different medium than we do normally. Last week it was all about multiplication and we decided that it was best for the TT crew to work one on one with a couple of the students.
We’ve realized that some students comprehend information a lot better if you spend time detailing the mechanics of a concept by breaking them down step by step. This week we continued with larger multiplication and realized that the students we work with were having trouble grasping the fundamentals behind multiplication because they never realized it was simply a quick way to add. So the students who were once getting frustrated with multiplication were suddenly amped when they realized they could break down 7×3 into 7+7+7. This made a world of a difference and it showed with the ” Now I get its” and big smiles. Moments like that are priceless to us and we look forward to providing more moments of clarity through our weekly Treasure Tuesday sessions.
If you are interested in getting involved , we would love to add your support to the crew! Send us an email and well let you know whats on next weeks agenda.
