SUMMER READING Recommendation:
Got Rekenreks?!?!? School Specialty Does!
Are Rekenreks included in your School Specialty/Math order for next year? If not, ordering is strongly encouraged. According to Graham Fletcher, "Incorporating a Rekenrek allows students to discover number and number relationships in a way that makes sense." Furthermore, Rekenreks are a popular DreamBox tool. Having the actual device, readily available, to demonstrate the virtual version of this manipulative on DreamBox will prove to be a true asset.
The GO Math! Lesson Resource Sheets have been UPDATED

As always, please feel free to share great ideas, videos or activities that you discover along the way either with email@example.com or your building Math Specialists.
