The commutative property is easy for some kiddos, but tricky for others. This year I saw a way too much TRICKY brewing in the noggins of our babes. After “chewing on” on this unfortunate situation for a bit, I came up with a silly little Halloween themed game to help us see “flip flop facts” in action.
After the whole class demonstration, our kids were put into partners. They were given a small pile of dominos and I showed them how to “drive” their domino on their game mat. They were all about it and most of the babes picked up the concept immediately. It was a grand lesson for sure 🙂
