**How do I use the Strategy Log Workbooks Effectively? **

The BlueStreak Math digital solution is recommended for a minimum of 15 minutes daily. For success, the role of the teacher is to work with small groups using the data from the BlueStreak Math Strategy Report, to correct misconceptions and build student capacity around a variety of math strategies. This provides a "turn-key" solution for teachers and students.

**Strategy Report:**

The Strategy Log Workbooks are not meant to be used from the first to the last page. The BlueStreak Math digital solution identifies and groups the students that need intervention support based on the math strategies. This provides small instructional groups based on data. The following is a sample and directions on how to access the report on the BlueStreak Math teacher or administrator platform.

**Directions for accessing the Strategy Report:**

- Login to BlueStreak Math
- Click on the "Strategies" icon on the toolbar
- Select the "Module"
- Customize the report selection, if you wish
- Click on "Populate Data" on the righthand side of the screen

The Strategy Report provides the page numbers correlated to the Mini-Lesson in the Strategy Workbook. The first intervention group for the strategy “Same Ole’0, Same Ole’1” (Multiplication properties and facts with one and zero) includes two students. The Mini-Lesson, is on pages 3-4, in the Multiplication and Division Strategy Log. Students are considered in need of help if they received less than 80% correct of their last 20 attempts at problems using the given strategy in the digital solution.

**Strategy Log Workbook:**

Below is the Mini-Lesson that the teacher would use to instruct the strategy “Same Ole’0, Same Ole’1”. This provides step-by-step problem solving and key vocabulary. It may be used for guided math instruction individually or in small groups. The Independent work page follows the Strategy page for students to demonstrate understanding as they apply their learning. These lessons may be introduced, explained, applied and independently practiced.

The Student Journal Page is for students to record their thoughts and progress. By describing their strategies, it helps concretize that understanding for long-term memory. Students can set goals and reflect on their math strategies and progress. Below is an example of the Student Journal Page which is at the end of each section. This may also be used individually or in small groups.
