    Parent participation is an important part of your childs success with Rocket Math.

    There are two ways that you canpractice at home with your child.

    One way is by using the oralpractice sheet that your child brings home each day. This sheet contains the facts that your childhas mastered, as well as the 3-4 new facts that were introduced during that days math class.

    1. Have the child practice the new facts (these are found at the top of the page in the parentheses) 3 or 4 times orally. The child should say the problem and answer.

    2. Using the oral practice sheet,have child practice 2-3 times.

    a. Have child read problem and answer.

    b. If your child hesitates or gives an incorrect answer, read the fact with the correct answer to your child.

    c. Have your child read the fact back to you with the correct answer.

    d. Have the child move back 3 problems on the practice sheet and continue oral practice.

    Another way that you can practice with your child is by using flash cards.

    1. Using your childs oral practice sheet, pull those facts out of the flash card deck.

    2. Have the child practice the new facts (those are found at the top of the page in the parentheses) 3 or4 times. The child should say the problem and answer.

    3. Using the flash cards representing all of the facts on the oral practice sheet, have child practice 2-3 times.

    a. Have child read problem and answer.

    b. If your child hesitates or givesan incorrect answer, read the fact with the correct answer to your child.

    c. Have your child read the fact back to you with the correct answer.

    d. Place the incorrectly answered cards 2-4 cards behind in the deck to be revisited.

    Things to remember:

    · Only practice facts from the oralpractice sheet. If using flash cards, pull those cards from the deck to use.

    · Have child say problem and answer.

    · Have child repeat incorrect facts,back up three problems, and start again.
