Amanda even came with me to test out the math number line center! We carefully aligned that center with the Doubles +1 Eureka Math Lesson that the first graders are currently learning. Students selected a number and read it aloud, then their partner doubled it and added one. Another student then programmed this algorithm for Blue-bot to perform. Some students also took on the challenge of subtracting one instead. This truly made the number line concepts physically come to life!
The students are learning basic programming with the Blue-bots and having fun practicing the math and ELA skills they are learning in class. I will share more about the other centers next time!
