Strategies (for home):
- Practice math facts at home - students should be able to answer within 3 seconds. I have found flash cards at the Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, and Target so far!

- Practice counting mixed money amounts - students should be able to sort highest to smallest amount and count the total
