Math facts

Hi all! My last five years teaching full-time I had second grade.

Right now I am tutoring a homeless child (through a volunteer community project) that is in second grade and struggling with her addition math facts.

I seem to remember a fun online free game called math blasters. Maybe I’m totally out of the loop because it has been four years. It was free unless you wanted to add more games. It was fun, it worked on each number’s math facts family.

This is not for our tutoring session but how she can practice for fun at home. The children are provided netbooks at school that they are able to bring home.

Any other ideas for fun practice other than flashcards? I have a memory game and a bingo that we can practice during our break. I’m thinking more interactive. I will take anything that you can offer.

What about working with dominoes? Use the ones that apply to the facts you are working on. This will give her a visual to go along with the fact. Hold up each domino. Have her tell how many in each group and how many altogether. Then have her sort all the dominoes by the sum. You can have her match the dominoes to the math fact (written on index cards), too.

We work with facts in groups.Once they master one group, we add the next group. i.e.the +0 facts and their turn arounds, the +1 facts and their turn arounds...doubles.

And...I just saw a set of dominos at the Center where we work today.

Thank you!

If you have access to online try XtraMath. It is free. It is individualized practice. I personally used it with games and fun practice also, but it took the place of flash cards. Google XtraMath and look at the website. Most of my 2nd graders loved it, but I know a lot of the 1st grade teachers used it also.
