SIMPLE SOLUTIONS
What is it ???
Previously taught material that students
quickly forget without practice
Constant reinforcement with constant
review
Allows students to be responsible for their
own learning
Aligned to the Common Core
Multiplication 0 - 10 is the most important pre-requisite for sixth grade
curriculum.
This is the number one goal for students to be able to learn the sixth grade
standards.
Without basic multiplication fluency, students will struggle with more than 48% of
sixth grade curriculum!!!!!!!!!
HOW CAN YOU HELP YOUR STUDENT ??
 Spot check homework EVERY evening
 Point out inaccuracies but let the student correct
the problems themselves
 Encourage your student to look up what they do
not know (back of text, “Help” pages, internet,
older siblings)
 Ask your student to discuss and explain math to
you (How did you get your answer?)
 Use real world math ( what is the 15 % tip ?)
 Talk about how you use math in your job and at
home ( cooking, gardening, etc

Room 611 Theme for 2014 – 2015 school year:
BE PROTECTORS OF OUR FAITH, EACH
OTHER AND CREATION!!!!!
“Let us protect Christ in our lives, so that we can protect
others, so that we can protect creation.
Whenever human beings fail to live up to this responsibility,
whenever we fail to care for creation and for our brothers and
sisters, the way is opened to destruction and hearts are
hardened.
In the end, everything has been entrusted to our protection,
and all of us are responsible for it. Be protectors of God’s
gifts.”
Pope Francis
