6.B.8. MENTAL Math dialogues IN SCRATCH

1. HOW WOULD YOU ADD 19 + 25?

From work with grades 3/4 teachers and students at the Wellington Catholic District School Board.


We did a demo for grades 3/4 students on how to build the code below.

Students scripted, and then coded, their own dialogues.


As an extension, students explored the Quiz below. Some students edited the code to create variations. Other students built the code themselves.

At the end of the activity, students were asked to reflect:

  • What did you learn?
  • How did you feel?
  • What else would you like to know?

They shared their learning at home, and parents returned the following feedback to teachers:

  • What did your child share with you?
  • What did you learn?
