Basic Math Facts
We practice our basic addition and subtraction facts for a few minutes every day at the beginning of our math time by using our Fact Triangles. Your child should be working on memorizing these facts. (If they already have them memorized, they can work on improving their speed in calling out answers.) There are so may ways to practice these facts. They can play games on the computer (see the Resources page of this blog for some computer math games), they can use their fact triangles, they can play Addition Top-It (see the Math page on this blog for directions). Check the Resources page and the Math page of this blog for more ideas. Generally, on Wednesdays, the math homework is to practice basic facts. These ideas can be used then and at any time to brush up on the basic facts.
