I strongly believe that every child should be able to go to school and get a good education weather they have a disability or not.

Some children in disadvantaged countries like Kenya are not able to get to school. For example 11 year old Lucy was diagnosed with polio when she was young and was affected in her right leg (see 100 word challenge week 33.) Now Lucy is not able to have fun and cannot get a good education if she doesn’t go to school

I believe every child should be able support their family in tough times and Lucy cannot do this without a good education. Let’s help Lucy and all the other disadvantaged children who cannot go to school.

Question 22: How many numbers between 1 and 60 are divisible by 9? Prediction: I predict I will need to use multiplication. Clarification: I have nothing to clarify.

Solution:

1. First you have to know your 9 times tables. 2. Now you need to times 9 until you get to the 5th time which should be 45 you add you one more 9 which should equal 53 and you can’t add another 9 because that will equal 63 and that is over 60.

Summary: I used the strategy guess, check and improve, test all possibilities and make  number sentence.
