## Thinking More about Addition and Subtraction

Here are some great examples!  What type of communication do you send home to your parents about the new common core?  Has your school made a parent handbook to explain the new algorithms and strategies?

## Volume: 5th Grade CCSS Critical Area

Here are some great resource to teach volume.  I  We have to try and use a variety of ways to teach volume so that the students get it.  Think of at least 5 different ways to approach it using the theory of Multiple Intelligences.  Remember that volume is a 5th grade critical area.

## Be a Math Ninja: Practice the facts in centers and guided math groups

Here is a great way to get your students excited about learning math facts.  We should  emphasize  composing and decomposing numbers, flexibility and confidence.  Here is a school that is doing just that!

Resource For Fact Club

I would have the students  working with each other to get efficient and fast.  They are only really competing against themselves but practicing individually, in partners and in groups.  I would also have them do some practice at their level with me in guided math groups.   Remember that the CCSS has 3 levels of efficiency (see the math progressions operations and algebraic thinking p.6)
