Feature Friday: Fact Practice Reports

Posted by Amy Klazkin on July 13, 2016 at 11:00 PM

Using Fact Practice on Front Row, students can do just that: practice their math facts. Students build math fact fluency by testing their ability to recall the basic facts in all four operations -- addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division -- both accurately and quickly. Think of Front Row Fact Practice as computerized flashcards. The goal of Fact Practice is to help students recall basic facts without conscious effort. When students build this automaticity of math facts, they can devote their working memory to problem-solving and learning new concepts and skills.

Feature Friday: Word Study Matrix Report

Posted by Amy Klazkin on June 24, 2016 at 2:00 AM

Just 2 months ago, we launched Front Row Word Study (and we hope you’ve had an opportunity to check it out on the student side of the program*). Word Study is a systematic approach to spelling instruction aimed at helping students develop an understanding of common spelling patterns in the English language. Unlike arbitrary spelling words, Word Study presents students with groups of words that share similar sounds and spelling patterns. And, instead of having all students in class work on the same spelling words, students using Front Row Word Study practice words at their individual developmental spelling stage.
