A Teacher Shares Student Feedback
Written by E.O., Teacher at LD School
I have had more positive student feedback about math this year than I honestly ever thought possible. I just have to share some of it with you, because it is too good not to share.
On learning multiplication the 9 Lines way:
“Mrs. O’Connor, I think you should make this kind of math into a YouTube channel. I would follow you if you did.”
“Mrs. O’Connor, this is getting into my head. It feels good.”
“Hmmm…Mrs. O’Connor, ever since you taught us the 4 table and now the 6 table, I realized that 6 x 4 and 4 x 6 actually equal the same exact number.”
“Mrs. O’Connor, I think you should probably tell everyone you know about this, especially the teacher at my old school.”
On learning Click & Show:
*whispered to just me* “Finally…..some math I have enough fingers for.”
On the Transformation to 100:
“OMG it IS 100! I never knew.”
“Hey! Those zeros are there for a reason!”
Also, may I just add, that as an adult it is so helpful to actually know my multiplication facts. Thanks for that. Because seriously, I really did think something was wrong with me for my entire life that I never knew them, and I am pleased to report that I was very successful in teaching them to myself.
