Subject: Strategies to assist a direct modeler

Hello, I am in the math semester of my teacher training program and am learning about CGI. I currently am working in a first grade classroom and have a student who is a direct modeler. She relies on cubes to solve any type of problem. However, even though she relies on these cubes, she does not seem confident with them. She recounts things numerous times. Also, she struggles with being able to recognize the different types of CGI problems. She solves just about every problem as if it is a join or seperate result unknown. What instructional strategies should I use with her to build up her confidence and assist her in solving multiple types of problems? Thanks. Jaclyn
