Fluency is how quickly you can complete a task accurately.
Many times our students struggle with math problems because of the time that it takes to remember math facts needed to solve a problem. Math fact fluency is so important! Students need daily practice in addition and subtraction in the lower grades and multiplication and division in the upper grades. Online games and flash cards are very helpful in building fluency.
Math Facts in a Flash is a computer program that you can access from home. More information on the program can be found below.
For reading, students need uninterrupted periods of time to read! Make time for your child to read. Read with your child. Let your child read to you.
Working on reading and math fact fluency is something that you can do with your child every day!
Below you will find links to computer programs that we use at school that are also available for students to use at home. Additional practice using these programs will help your students to grow!
