Hello Parents.  A quick update regarding the math pages that came home with your child today.  I asked the children to use either a hundreds chart, an open number line, or the stack and solve with regrouping/borrowing strategy to solve the subtraction problems today.  While I understand and support introducing and practicing multiple strategies to "find the right fit,"  I'm not a huge fan of creating more "steps/work" to the problem solving process.  So, the childre...
