Fact Fluency is just as important in math as sight words are in reading!
Common Core addresses it...
1.OA.6. Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 – 4 = 13 – 3 – 1 = 10 – 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 – 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
2.OA.2. Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies.2 By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers
3.OA.7.Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
Here's my newest efforts to help students along the way...
Yes, these do look familiar. I created similar games for Fry words and Fry phrases for reading fluency.
They are now posted in my Teachers Pay Teacher store along with...
to practice adding doubles and...
to practice multiplying doubles.
I played the addition version in a second grade class and the multiplication version in fifth grade last week in groups of 3s and 4s. They loved them!
