Dynamic Addition: The students are doing dynamic addition using the golden beads. Dynamic addition simply means addition where they need to carry over an amount. The process is similar to static addition except if the child has a group of ten he/she will need to exchange. Exchanging takes place when the child is combining the beads.
Cursive Handwriting: The students learned and practiced the correct stokes to successfully make a lowercase c and lowercase o. To make a lowercase c they learned to curve around to just below the midline and roll back
around to just above the baseline. To make a lowercase o they learned to curve around to just below the midline, roll back around past the baseline and up to the midline and dip connector at the midline.
