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 On line games and resources
We are a team !!! Let’s work together for success.
Notebook Sharpened Pencils Paper Red or Green Pen Workbook Homework Participation Attitude
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, usually no homework on Friday, unless the student needs extra practice, to study for tests and/or quizzes, (or if they have not been completing their homework!!!)etc. Be ready for Pop Quizzes!

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
When we take the first step back, young people will take the first independent step forward.
