It seems I am a day behind on all the linkys this week. But I am trying something new, preparing them the night before and it is working out much better for me. Today I am linking up with Ideas by Jivey for her Workshop Wednesday.
This week's theme is math websites for math workshop. I don't teach math anymore, instead I teach two classes of ELAR. I sort of miss math lately...it seems a bit less complicated to prepare for and teach compared to language/writing/reading/spelling, etc....but maybe that's just because I'm not doing it anymore. Grass is always greener on the other side right?
Here's a fact fluency website which is great for younger kids (it has multiplication and division too actually, I've just never used those parts). It's called Math Magician and was created by Oswego School District in New York. They actually have some more math games here. There are some options there to create your own games with simple pre made formats too, but I've never tried that.
Students choose the operation they are practicing.
Then they choose the level (+0, +1, etc.).
Students are given 1 minute to solve 20 problems. They type in the answer and press enter for the next problem. The time is tracked on the side.
At the end, it tells the percentage and gives them an award to print if they got a good score. (I typed one wrong!)
I hope you can use it. The kids love it, especially trying to beat the timer, which is good because it helps increase fact fluency.
