One of the issues you run into when sending math practice home is that parents do not know how to support their children. Many of the strategies we use in our current teaching were not ones that parents used when they were in school. These strategy mats can be used by students and parents alike. I also use them to assess my students in guided math. It provides a quick checklist that can be check-ed, ex-ed, and written on to update parents on their child's understanding.
