Every year, I have a number of students who struggle with our beginning expectation of subtraction so they spend the whole year chasing the subtraction expectation and never complete the mixed operation! I have tried to send home things here and there in the past, and I don’t see a lot of follow through from families and their children continue to struggle because we cannot spend all day working on math facts in class! I decided to try and send home “Math bags” this year to help provide a variety of resources to parents as well as a log they can track their progress with. This packet is all of the materials I am trying to utilize this year to see if it helps with fact fluency.
