Math Fact Idea?????
07172008, 12:10 PM


I posted this on the Math board but haven't gotten any replies and I wanted some other teacher opinions.
I was just trying to come up with some ideas for keeping track of student progress of timed tests!! This is my first year in 3rd grade (moved from 2nd) and I was not happy with their progress last year so I wanted to make it more of a big deal this year!!
Some teachers use Rocket Math at our school so I am going to use just the tests and start with addition. I was going to make a sunflower and for every test they pass they get to add a petal, hopefully filling it and getting to Z. Then moving on to subtraction and a new idea. Does this make sense? But then I was thinking that this might not be very exciting for them  not like the using the sundae idea but I wanted to save that for the Multiplication mastery tests.
Then I could use snowflakes for subtraction facts, etc.
Any ideas???
