Math Facts Practice

There's always been a big push at my school for basic fact fluency.  And of course, as a teacher of a "testing grade", I always want my students to have that fluency in order to help them in their problem solving.  You know your basic facts, solving bigger addition and subtraction problems are going to come much easier and much more quickly!

I do a weekly competition in both of my classes called "The Fact Off," which I will post more about at a later date.  We also do schoolwide fact practice and weekly tests.  I wanted to give my students some additional fact practice this past year and give myself a way to track their progress.  We start with addition at the very beginning of the year and move into subtraction once those facts are mastered.  After introducing multiplication and division, we move into practicing those facts more as well.  I created fact practice worksheets last summer to use as part of my students' morning work.  You can find both my addition practice and subtraction practice on my TpT store.  I'm also offering them as a discounted bundle and will be adding multiplication and division in the coming weeks.

Thanks for stopping by!
