# Great Basic Facts Number and Strategy Club!

This is a great website based on the Oregon Teachers of Mathematics guided activities. They have created a series of activities to scaffold learning. As the students complete the activities, they move through membership levels in the “number club” and then the “strategy club”. This is just great basic practice and a motivating structure. The clubs are listed in the left sidebar. Check out all the information on this site!

This is how they frame it:

“Number Club provides a framework for methodically working through the patterns that make up our base-ten number system. Strategy Club builds on understanding those patterns and using them to solve progressively more challenging addition and subtraction problems. This program is a tool to differentiate instruction within the frame-work of a whole group lesson….and best of all; it’s a hit with children!”

Be sure to look at the class summaries and the certificates.

Happy Mathing,

What a fantastic idea! It is one solution to helping students learn their basic facts without being boring. Win-win for everyone – teachers, students, and maybe even the parents could get involved. Could Number Club be done as a center? It also addresses the Common Core for K-2. Excellent website. Thanks!!!
