Hi Liz
Thank you for your sharing and teaching. I couldn’t find all of 5 essay types in your advanced course for purchasing!! I have seen Just 3 of them in your site. Is there any problem ?

Recent discoveries, as yet unsubstantiated, back this theory.

It is thought that the Mayan's may have used an abacus because of the use of their symbols and, therefore, there may be a connection between the Japanese and certain American tribes (Ortenzi, 1964).

Congratulations, you have made it to the final page of Developing Preschool Number Sense!

New York: Macmillan Company, 1930.

Mental calculation:
Count in 2s, 5s and 10s
Begin to count in 3s
Using fingers, say where a given number is in the 2s, 5s or 10s count; e.g. 8 is the fourth number when I count in 2s
Relate division to grouping; e.g. How many groups of 5 in 15?
Halve numbers to 20
Begin to halve numbers to 40 and multiples of 10 to 100
Find ½, 1&8260;3, ¼ and ¾ of a quantity of objects and of amounts (whole number answers)

We have explored many aspects of developing number sense. We focused on:

I have not seen a cue card on lexicography. If you mean my video lesson, that was speaking part 1 which are basic questions about you – how often do you use dictionaries, why do you use them, are they useful etc. You will not get that topic for part 2. So, relax. You need to pay more attention to understanding the speaking test!!! See my main page and learn about topics:

They tend to use the quantities one, two and many-which would include four.

This was the ancient South American civilization of the Inca Empire.

Therefore two important markers in this system are 20, which relates to the fingers and toes, and five, which relates to the number of digits on one hand or foot.
