Mastering Math Facts, a system for motivating students and teaching them their math facts quickly and easily. It's been so gratifying to hear from teachers what a difference this program has made in their classrooms!
Now I'm excited to announce that I've signed a contract to publish Mastering Math Facts in print! I'm in the process of revising and updating the book, and I have a core group of teachers who are field-testing the materials now. Third grade teacher Suzy Huff Brooks of the Technically Invisible blog
is one of my field-testers, and she's been using the materials with her
students. She just posted a great video showing how she conducts her
daily math fact drills in her classroom.
I loved watching Suzy's video because it was fun to see the kids using the program and how she implemented the techniques described in the book. Several of Suzy's management strategies were uniquely her own, and I picked up a few tips myself! Be sure to hop over to Suzy's Technically Invisible blog where you can watch the video yourself. I think you'll enjoy it too!
multiplication practice board that looks like the one on the right. In all fairness, I have to admit that this practice board isn't in the current version of Mastering Math Facts. It's a template that was suggested by my field-testers as a replacement for individual whiteboards, and I've decided to offer it as a freebie for those who might need it. You can duplicate it on card stock, and then laminate it or slide it into a sheet protector. You can find this item on the Multiplication page on Teaching Resources.
By the way, if you need Mastering Math Facts now and are wondering if you should wait for the revised version, I have good news! I spoke with my publisher and we have decided to send a free upgrade to anyone who has already purchased my ebook version or who buys it before the new one comes out! We'll also offer these same folks a great deal on the print version when it's ready later this summer.The icing on the cake is that I've just reduced the price of Mastering Math Facts several dollars and that deal will last from now until the revised version is available! If you're in need of free multiplication resources, be sure to visit my Multiplication page where you'll find a free webinar recording and links to fun multiplication websites. Enjoy!
