Hey, ya’ll! I’m very happy to be apart of a fun blog hop on one of my favorite topics – teaching math facts. It’s hosted by the very sweet Joy Hall of Joy of Teaching. Be sure to scroll all the way down (and why wouldn’t you anyway?? :P), so you can hop on over to the next awesome tip for learning math facts.
So let me share with you five fun ways that I have my students work and improve their math fact fluency.
1) Poke Cards
I create and use these guys all year long. Here is an example of how it works with my FREE Multiplication Beach Ball Poke Cards.
You print them out, cut and laminate them, and then hole-punch the plus signs.
Then taking a light-colored marker, you circle the correct answer on the back.
Students then take a coffee stirrer, a pencil tip, a cupcake pick, or in this case a cocktail umbrella (ok, I would not suggest the latter, but it’s all I had in the house and it makes for cute pics :P), and pick the right answer to the fact.
