Special Ed Teacher Needs Math Help

VISITOR: I just found this site and I am a bit overwhelmed. I have been teaching students who have been identified as having learning disabilities for about 30 years. Some I have real questions about. I do know they are behind their peers academically. Most have “gaps” in their learning that I have tried to help them with by using different methods or just having them in smaller groups.  Math is an area that I would like to learn more about to help my students, I am currently working with third and fourth grade students who have difficulty with all basic operations especially regrouping in addition and subtraction.  Multiplication is very difficult for my fourth graders. I have tried different strategies, but I feel I need something else. Can you recommend something that I can use or something I can read?  One student has me really confused when she is doing multiplication.

Thank you, I would appreciate any help you can give me,

  2. The last OnePlus flagship was so incredible that I can't wait to get my hands of the OnePlus 4.
    I heard it was coming out in mid 2017 and I just hope OnePlus takes care if the issues with the last phone.
    I'm hoping OnePlus 4 will give one hell of an competition to other flagships in the industry. To know more about OnePlus 4, its just take a look here OnePlus 4 Smartphone

  3. Greetings! Great advice, thanks. I hope it will help me do my math assignments faster harder better stronger (like in a song hehe) Well, to be honest, it is great to learn something new, it is even greater to understand honestly, that you need some help in doing something. And it is completely awesome, I wish I met more teachers like this one in my school!

  7. Yes, math can be really challenging especially when you are a fourth grader. And being a math teacher - even more challenging. But still I think that it is not about some learning disabilities of children but about their priorities in learning. Great musicians or writers or linguists are mostly not good in math as well but they turned out to be great in other areas. Let your students make their choice.
