Weekend Warriors: Fact Fluency!

I'm back with more math for you!!

We've been working lots on fact fluency.
At the beginning of the year, we started by using Xtramath.

Xtramath is a fantastic site that kids can use at home and at school to practice fact fluency.
And it's free!
It's super easy to sign your class up.
You'll get a list of pin numbers for your kiddos to enter.
Plus, there are even parent letters to send home to let them know how to practice at home!
My kids LOVE it!
They beg me to let them play.

We play on our class computer.

We also play on our class iPad.
Which is obviously the favorite! :)

Xtramath starts with easy addition.
It times the kids to answer the question and marks off the facts they know with green.
If they get an answer wrong, it tells them the right answer and makes them type it in.
They get smiley faces for the ones they get correct.

Once they master a fact, the square turns green and they work on harder facts.
Once the kids master addition, it begins working on subtraction.
I have a few who are already on multiplication!!!!!
I like it because it lets the kids work at their level and makes them feel successful!
They LOVE the little smileys!
They always have to tell me how many smileys they get! :)

If your kids need practice with fluency, give Xtramath a try! :)
