Out with the old and in with the new!

 We have jumped right in this year using our new math series enVision MATH.  We, as a county, previously used Saxon Math, but this year it is out with the old and in with the new. (So far so good!)  We are loving the problem-based interactive learning because we all know that students learn best when they have opportunities to interact with the teachers and other students.  It is important for us to let student's know the purpose of a lesson from the start while connecting the new knowledge to prior knowledge in school or in everyday life. Keep that in mind when you are helping your child with their math.  No one knows their child better than you and if there is a way you can relate what they are doing to their real life, it will have a much stronger impact.    The students are responding wonderfully to this program which makes us excited.  Check these rockin' cool students out while they are working together to learn some new problem solving strategies.
