Access to technology?

If you have access to technology, use it. In my opinion, games are the best way to get math facts mastered and we saw significant progress in my school when we started relying more on their tablets to master facts. My students really like reflex math and get rewarded for reaching the 'green light'. We also like room recess and there's always math playground. They also love prodigy - the site offers less basic facts and more of a mix of skills, though. The kids will be a lot more engaged and get those very necessary basic facts out of the way without using your precious class time - they can do it as their warm-up, as a small group independent activity, or during "homework time", etc.
