Practice through Games
Games are an essential component of practice in the Everyday Mathematics program. Games offer skills practice and promote strategic thinking. I sent home your child's log-in card to play the Everyday math games online (link is below)! Here are the games we'll focus on this unit followed by the skill it practices:
- Coin Top-it: counting and exchanging coins
- One-dollar exchange: exchanging coins and bills
- beat the calculator: addition facts
- Tric-Trac: addition facts
- Base-10 Exchange: Place Value
- 3,2,1 Game: Subtraction
- Difference Game: Subtraction
- Coin Exchange: exchanging coins
- Addition top-it: finding and comparing sums
I am seeing strong fact power in this class!! Keep up the good work!!
We are still practicing strategies to gain Fact Power! Fact Power is the automatic recall of basic facts. So far we have discussed the patterns of +0, +1, and double facts. We have briefly touched on +8 and +9. This is a little tougher but once they get it, they are golden! I found a few videos online that I will share to help with these concepts. I also have an article that i REALLY would love for all parents to read. In this article you will read about how students with fact power enjoy math so much more than students without fact power. I couldn't agree with the lady more! I know it's long, but WOW she makes some really good points. I'm also going to send a paper copy home if you don't want to read it on your computer.
