Here is a great “twist” on speed and accuracy for math facts!  You make this contraption and then say as many facts as you can before it twirls to the floor.

Go to linked page above…look at the ideas and be sure to click on “Helitimer” the 5th link.  It’s a PDF that you can download!

## Math Fact Cards

Hello my friends,

Here is a great resource for math fact flash cards. I love that they are sorted by fact type. Be sure to set up a math fluency workstation that is leveled.  Meaning that, some students would be practicing make ten facts while others would be practicing doubles.  Super important that students practice in their zone of proximal development.

## Be a Math Ninja: Practice the facts in centers and guided math groups

Here is a great way to get your students excited about learning math facts.  We should  emphasize  composing and decomposing numbers, flexibility and confidence.  Here is a school that is doing just that!

Resource For Fact Club

I would have the students  working with each other to get efficient and fast.  They are only really competing against themselves but practicing individually, in partners and in groups.  I would also have them do some practice at their level with me in guided math groups.   Remember that the CCSS has 3 levels of efficiency (see the math progressions operations and algebraic thinking p.6)

Happy Mathing,
