Using Parentheses and Fraction Word Problems

Using Parentheses and Fraction Word Problems

When solving fraction word problems, encourage your child to use visuals, like tape diagrams, to show their mathematical thinking before they solve them with standard computation. Visuals can help your child understand the problems in a deeper way, and can also help them to check their work. Remind your child that the order of operations applies to problems with fractions, too!

Compare and Contrast in Nonfiction Texts

Compare and Contrast in Nonfiction Texts

Host a family movie night about a historical event! Afterwards, discuss the movie's themes, comparing and contrasting aspects of the film to actual events. What did your child observe? What inferences did they make as they watched? Conversations like this can prepare your child to apply these same critical thinking skills to their reading.
Use graphic organizers and visual guides to support your students as they compare and contrast information from nonfiction texts. This is especially important when students are inferring relationships between ideas or subtopics. Once students have recorded information in an organizer, they will be prepared to have conversations about their inferences and observations. Be sure to model this process for your students by working though a sample text with them.
