  17. 17. STRATEGIES  Allow use of fingers and scratch paper  Use diagrams and draw math concepts  Provide peer assistance  Suggest use of graph paper  Suggest use of colored pencils to differentiate problems  Work with manipulatives
  18. 18.  Draw pictures of word problems  Use nemonic devices to learn steps of a math concept  Use rhythm and music to teach math facts and to set steps to a beat  Schedule computer time for the student for drill and practice

  35. 35. STRATEGIES
  36. 36. STRATEGIES  Expose the child to early oral reading, writing, drawing, and practice to encourage development of print knowledge, basic letter formation, recognition skills and linguistic awareness (the relationship between sound and meaning).
