My students practice their math facts using XtraMath. They’re seeing their progress and are understandably proud! I decided to create tags to let them be reminded of how hard they’re working, and to encourage them to keep trying! They’re a great visual display of how far they’ve come since September!
We just refer to the XtraMath report for which multiples each student has mastered, making it easy to monitor!
To help kids feel successful, I start them out on 6-second multiplication, then move the to 3 seconds. And I still do a paper-and-pencil test three times a year which helps kids who aren’t a proficient with typing!
I’ve added addition, subtraction, and division to these punch cards for download as a PowerPoint file so that you can easily add your students’ names. Check them out here!
