Tuesdays are fast becoming my favorite day of the week this summer with Two for Tuesday with The Teaching Tribune. I have gotten some great deals and added a few things to my wish list each week! The two products that I have chosen to mark down to 50% off are my Kicking It Math Subtraction and Kicking It Math Division Products.
You can read the full post about how I implement this in my class here.
Happy students wearing the "belts" they have won!
Yes, belts, as in karate belts. The program involves a karate theme and the students pass levels to earn different belts. They LOVE this!
We start by practicing our math facts orally. Each student has their own key ring with "belts" that have the math facts on them - problems only on one side and problems and answers on the other. One student says all of the problems and answers while the other student coaches, then they switch. This takes about 2-3 minutes.
Here is a close-up of the cards.
Then we complete a 1 minute timed test. The students have folders with their current level in a sheet protector. They answer using a dry erase marker. I only make copies at the beginning of the year! Yeah!
If they finish before the time is up, they raise their folder above their head, I collect them, grade them, and change the sheet out if they are all correct.
Their name is also changed on our level board.
