|As primary teachers, our lives are all about building independence and spiral review. Math Centers offer the chance for students to review and practice core-content skills, under the guise of fun and games! As they feel successful in their learning, they gain confidence and independence in their problem-solving skills. In addition to repeated practice, part of building independence is keeping families in the loop about what's happening in the classroom. My editable newsletters keep notes home looking fresh and offer families ways to support learning.
