Mastered facts- Now What

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have a student who is close to passing his time test requirements for all the basic operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. He scored 100% three weeks in a row for each and can complete them within the 3 second time limit. I can't think of a good reason to really have to do them any faster.... so where should I go with him from here? Obviously, he's mastered them, so now what?

This is a second grader. I don't think it's necessarily developmentally appropriate to mix the operations. I've toyed with this idea, too, but I question the purpose of that "drill." I could let him use the time for higher level skills... but need some ideas. Please do share!
