How can you help your elementary students develop the math proficiency they need? Here are nine resources recommended by Yvonne King, a veteran of lower elementary.
Flashcards, drills, and charts
1. Student Math Flashcards: Plus
Printable addition flashcards for individual practice. These can be printed double sided onto card stock and the answers will be on the back. Cut them out and they are ready for your students!
2. Student Math Flashcards: Minus
Printable subtraction flashcards for individual practice. These can be printed double sided onto card stock and the answers will be on the back. Cut them out and they are ready for your students!
3. Sample Math Record Chart
A sticker chart to record individual student progress with the math drill sheets.
4. Games for Math Fact Review
A variety of simple games to play in the classroom to review math facts. These work best in lower elementary but some could be adapted for middle grades.
5. Math Drill Sheets
Worksheets of plus and minus math facts, gradually increasing in difficulty, for student mastery of facts. Download the instructions.
6. Addition and Subtraction Worksheets: 0-9
These math fact worksheets synchronize with the order that the facts are taught in Grade 2 Saxon Math. It works well to give one or two of them as a homework page on the test day, since students have no other math papers to finish in class that day. Download the editable documents
