I teach a 4/5 combo and my kids still don't know their math facts. What is something that you do in your room with math facts?

I went to this site and made tests. It can keep track of how they do on each test and shows what they miss each time. You can change the number of problems and the time to accommodate kids. You can use a computer, iPad, and/or qr code to do these.

Old fashioned fact practice

We have fact practice every day. I give them 5minutes to complete 100 facts based on focus numbers (x1, x2, etc). They have to complete all 100 correctly in the time allotted.
I have a couple of students who are slow processors, so I only give them 50 problems.

Xtramath.org

It's daily fact practice that takes maybe 5-7 minutes per student. The program works on fact fluency and accuracy. It also generates a report, so it's good for data tracking.

I second it. It's an awesome program for all operations.

I'd never seen thatquiz.org. The site looks great! I'm going to experiment with that. I especially like that you can disable the timer.

To the OP: You have to be sure the students actually know the facts first before doing any kind of practice, so assess that first and reteach as needed. I've always used the Oswego Math Magician site for basic practice, but it does have a big timer that counts down on the side of the page. Also, look for fun ways to practice, such as games. This time of year, there are lots of Christmas coloring sheets on Super Teacher Worksheets where students fill in the facts, then color the picture according to the code.
