For those who want advice on basic fact practice
Hi all! I am a math teacher and have been asked many times recently by parents of DD's friends how to practice math facts. I also see on here people who don't want their kids doing apps or flash cards and don't want them to do rote work during the summer. BUT, basic fact practice is SO important, especially for those kids who struggle to retain them. So, here are a few suggestions for things that help develop automaticity with basic facts that are not flash cards, apps or workbooks: (and, let me say, I don't see any of those ways as bad either!)
Blackjack - teaches reasoning along with quick adding skills
any board game where you move after rolling 2 dice...start playing them early, in preschool or kindy and your child will nicely move through counting the dots to adding them together to quickly knowing sums
yahtzee/Farkle - great for bridging addition with multiplication
Monopoly or Life - keeps using basic facts and fosters place value higher up
Many, many, many other card games also do this same thing. Add other games that you see helping math skills!
