Day 23: integer subtraction

Everyone had their homework! After going over it, I did a quick-check and they understand adding integers (hopefully forever, and not temporarily).  For the rest of the time the class worked on integer subtraction and discovering the rule.

I have a non-English speaking student in my class and the communication barrier is s-l-o-w-l-y lessening. While I can print out the textbook in Spanish, I really haven’t been able to help her in class because I don’t speak a word of Spanish. Today, however, was different.  I’m adamant about not imposing on other Spanish language students to be an interpreter, but today I asked for two words, and it made all the difference.

cambia

Is my spelling correct?
