Consonant Clusters

Consonant Clusters

Which words are students having problems spelling? Are they mastering consonant clusters such as bl, fr, or sp that may occur at the front of a word? Ask students to practice writing as many words as they can think of that start with these letters.
The true assessment of spelling mastery lies within students' writing samples. Look at their writing to discover which spelling patterns they have mastered. Focusing on consonant clusters is a great place to start!

Subtraction with Regrouping

Subtraction with Regrouping

When practicing subtraction, remember that regrouping, or borrowing, refers to the process of being able to bring a 10 or 100 from a higher place value over to a lower place value. This makes subtraction with two- or three-digit numbers much easier.
Remind students and parents about math terms that may appear on worksheets. In terms of subtraction, "regrouping" has the same meaning as "borrowing." This can help when parents are assisting their children with math homework.
