Here are a few reasons why we know Tangy Tuesday puzzles are valuable work for your students!
1. Repeated practice of addition and subtraction facts.
2. Instant feedback. At the end of the puzzle, if the last computation doesn't match, they know there was a mistake!
3. While looking for the spot with the error, the students are performing all of the computations again.
4. It's fun!

When you are reading with your children at night, it may be helpful to know some of the teaching points they are learning at school! A few reminders from parents to scoop their words or give the book a sneak peek can go a long way in making these the habits of good readers! One of my favorite points that is helpful in both fiction and nonfiction is Stop, Think, Retell. I know that I have been guilty of having several pages of reading go by, yet I'm not sure what I read! By using this practice, students get into the habit of self-regulating their reading and increase comprehension. Give some of these strategies a try at home!
