Math Fluency Practice Ideas

Kindergarteners- going into 1st Grade

Goals:  Fluently add and subtract within 5, add and subtract within 10, count as many as 20 “items”, count to 100 by 1’s & 10’s

  • Give child anything to count: cheerios, Barbie shoes, lego’s,…; “show me 6 Skittles” “show me 9 cheerios”
  • Roll a dice- child counts and then recognizes how many dots are showing on the dice
  • Roll a dice- child counts the number and then lays out that many items
  • War with cards: play with a partner- each person turns over a card- whoever has the greater number wins, tomorrow it might be whoever has the smaller number wins
  • War with dice: roll a dice- larger number wins- or smaller wins. “5 is greater than 1” etc.  More advanced students can roll 2 dice and add them- and play War with the sums.
  • Dominos- practice counting the dots

Possible websites:

iPad Apps:

  • Tallytots
  • Subitize Tree
  • Motion Math: Hungry Fish
  • Code Squad
  • Math Zombies (easy setting)
  • Mathtopia
  • Numbers Logic Puzzle
  • Make 10 +     

Math Fluency Practice Ideas

1st Graders- going into 2nd Grade

Goals:  Fluently add and subtract within 20, count to 120 (starting at any number)

  • Roll a dice- child counts the number and then lays out that many items
  • War with cards: play with a partner- each person turns over a card- whoever has the greater number wins, tomorrow it might be whoever has the smaller number wins
  • War with dice: roll and add 2 dice- larger number wins- or smaller wins. “13 is greater than 9” etc.  More advanced students roll 3 or more dice and add them- and play War with the sums.
  • Dominos- practice adding the dots
  • Roll a dice, add 10 to the roll (or whatever you wish to practice)
  • Roll a dice, double whatever you roll
  • Roll 2 dice- add the 2 together, or subtract the 2
  • Play “Find another Name” ---Roll the dice and students give partners (or break aparts) to get that number e. I roll a 5, I give partners such as 3 + 2, my partner gives a different combination such as 4 +1. More advanced students could roll 2 dice and then give partners for the sum.  (I roll 4 and 5:  My sum is 9.  I say 6 +3,  my partner says 8 +1)
  • Practice counting starting at random numbers under 100.
  • The number is 10 (or 20, or 15) - Write down 10 different number sentences that equal the target number. Practice with picture representations. Do it with many different numbers.  Encourage different solutions.
  • Mystery number: Think of a number and describe it. I’m thinking of a number greater then- but less then, it’s odd, . . .

  • Roll 2 dice give all 4 fact family problems (I give 2 addition, partner gives 2 subtraction than switch places and partner rolls and gives 2 addition)

Teamwork

Written by

Teamwork is when a group of people work together to accomplish a common goal. Teamwork skills are needed in order to be successful in all aspects of our lives. In order to excel at teamwork, we must get along well with others, value other people’s strengths, confidently share our ideas, and listen well to others. When we are a positive member of a team, we know that “two heads are better than one” and that we can accomplish more together than we can alone. Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
