Making a list is particularly useful in word problems that ask you to find all possible combinations. With a list, you can check and see if you've considered all the possibilities!

Grades 3 - 6
If students have trouble writing with the SMART pens, check that they are holding the stylus correctly. If a student's wrist or hand rubs against the screen while writing, his or her writing will appear garbled and illegible. When using these pens, only the stylus tip should make contact with the SMART Board. If the writing is not showing up on the screen, try pushing a little harder with the SMART pen. Applying pressure with the pens will not damage the SMART Board.
