Fluency Practice: What do you do with those cards anyway?
I love this idea! Have students have their own practice folders with the cards sorted into “facts I know” and “facts I need to know.” It helps them to focus and plan. It also helps them to practice with purpose! They can spend part of the time reviewing what they know and then the other part of the time practicing the facts that they need to know! Be sure to do this with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts.
Have the students practice in math centers. Also, do this in a guided math group and watch the students practice. Do they really know all the facts that they say the know?
