Addition Facts in Five Minutes a Day

Memorizing addition facts is not only challenging, but success-oriented and fun with this five-minutes-a-day system. Students work through a series of daily timed tests at their own rate, beginning with 0-1, 2, 3, 0-3 etc., mastering each one before proceeding to the next. Math whiz kids are constantly challenged, while students having difficulty are given the time they need to master and overlearn the facts. In addition to worksheets and answer keys, this booklet has personal flash card masters, forms for folders and record-keeping, and additional games and activities.

Your math program is a Godsend. I just lucked into it as I was searching for another book at the bookstore. One thing that's neat is I have a Down's Syndrome boy in my class. I modified the worksheet so there are 10 problems in a column and it looks just like the other kids'. He loves it and he is learning. This program is such a part of our routine. All I have to do is a little reading and run some stuff off and the kids do the rest.
