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

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, . . .

Math Fluency Practice Ideas

2nd Graders- going into 3rd Grade

Goals:  Fluently add and subtract within 20, add and subtract within 100, mentally add or subtract 10 or 100 to a given number, count by 5’s, 10’s, and 100’s.

  • Roll a dice, add 10 or random number to whatever they roll
  • Roll a dice, double (or triple) whatever you roll

  • Roll a dice (or 2-4 and add) tell how many more to get to the benchmark of number of 10, then 20, then 30, etc.
  • Play “Find another Name” --Roll 2, 3, or 4 dice and add to get sum. Students give partners (or break aparts) to get that number i.e. I roll a 5, 3 and 4. My sum is 12.  I give partners such as 9 + 3, my partner gives a different combination such as 6 + 6.
  • 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)
