We have been completing practical addition for most of the week and yesterday we began writing some number operations on whiteboards. Today i had my LSA working with the SEN group and the others were completing a sheet were they had to count the number of apples in a basket and write number underneath, then they had to count the number of extra apples added and again write the numeral under. Then they had to count the total and write the answer next to the equals sign. They all understood that addition was combining two groups and the sum with 3 + 3 they all knew it was 6 but recording it was hell on earth. Please help.
