I have been learning to solve addition problems by first jumping by a tidy number then jumping back

So What?

I have learned that when you have an equation like 73 - 28  = you can either add the same number to both sides, or you can subtract the same number from both sides. 

I have learned that when you have an equation like 145 +  38  = if you add something to one side, you must take it away from the other side.

Now What?

My next step is to use this strategy independently
My next step is to use this strategy with larger numbers

Cloze blog

I am learning how to do a cloze activity to help me with my reading
Being able to make logical predictions about what word would fit correctly into a sentence is a successful reader strategy.

So What?
We use the following procedures:
  1. Read the whole text so that we can get an overall picture of the text.
  2. Re-read the text and think of words that would fit into the gaps. Write them down
  3. Look at the word list for this activity and see if I am correct / make changes

Now What?
I am at the following stage: A = I am independent. I read the text, select words that I feel logically and grammatically fit, and then I use the word list to confirm my predictions and / or make some small changes.
