Great Ideas About Equal Signs and Flashcards
Check out Heidi Samuelson's blog Swamp Frog First Graders. She has posted a YouTube video of ideas she has learned from Dr. Copley's Workshop. You will find two excellent activities. One demonstrates the importance of teaching students that the = sign means "the same as" instead of the sign that comes before the answer. The other idea is how to make flashcards that can be used for addition and subtraction.
