Tips and Tricks

BSO parent Stacie S. has a great idea she'd like to share!

This is a picture of our touch math chart. I taped this on the corner of my student's desk and it saves us time, because instead of pulling out the blocks, we just look at the chart. It works for counting on and counting back. For us, it's very useful and over time, he'll memorize the dot placement. To be honest, I learned this in 2nd grade and I still use it!

Thanks for the awesome idea Stacie! 

If you have a tip or suggestion you'd like to share with other BSO families, please email .
