Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

In addition to individual student work time, use this instructional slide deck on fact families to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole-class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need support by breaking the teaching presentation into smaller portions. For example, use the material to teach about addition fact families first and give students an opportunity to talk, process, and record their learning. When your students are ready, use the material to cover subtraction fact families, while comparing the two types of operations. 

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

For students who may need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to practice their knowledge of fact families by creating some visual representations of two-digit number fact families in their books!
