Hi <<First Name>>,
 
Ongoing practice is an essential element of the Stepping Stones program. We are often asked if there is an easy way of knowing what concepts and skills the ongoing practice pages are revising. Today we'll explain this framework.
To view the ongoing practice select ongoing practice from the lesson menu.

On this page you'll find the rollover function which is discussed below.
Ongoing practice in Grades 1 to 5 follows the framework shown in the table below. Kindergarten is slightly different. For the ongoing practice framework for Kindergarten, please click here.

In Grades 1 to 5, lessons 1, 5, and 9, Stepping Stones provides a projectable tool specifically designed to develop and maintain fact fluency for the four operations. This tool is provided right through to Grade 5, even though students are expected to be fluent in all facts before then. The resources tab provides a list of facts that can be read or projected by the teacher. You get to control the duration in which the students can solve each fact.

Ongoing practice in lessons 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12, helps students maintain previously learned concepts and skills. Stepping Stones provides one practice page that incorporates questions that revisit content from three previous modules or lessons. Generally, Question 1 comes from an earlier module of work, Question 2 comes from the previous module and Question 3 comes from the current module. Simply roll over the question to see the related module and lesson.

Ongoing practice in lessons 3, 7, and 11 provides written reinforcement and practice of mental computation strategies the students have been learning. You can again roll over the image on the page to reveal the focus of the content.
