Hello to the gang at Beaver Creek – the first school with whom I have worked to have chosen Mental Math as an instructional focus for their school goal… wow! You rock! :o)
I have attached a fleshed out list of mental math strategies for you. As mentioned, they would be great to put on the wall with an illustration of each one… Remember that think alouds will certainly help – as you model for the children, they will hear the language they need to describe their mental math strategies!
All the best,
