WALT solve multiplication problems by taking some off or putting some on.

REFLECTION:
In maths I have been learning how to do compensation by adding on or taking away. I know that 6x50=300 so  6x49= 294 and 6x51=306. I feel proud because I know a lot of my times tables. Next time I want to solve larger equations.
