Need a fun and motivating way to help your students learn their math facts!? Math Racers are a fun way to help your students practice their addition facts using daily timed tests that are engaging and motivating. Math racers are differentiated, so this unit is sure to help all of your little learners practice and memorize their math facts!
This unit includes:
-Timed math tests for addition facts 1-12
-Three sets of doubles
-Three sets of doubles plus one
-Three sets of mixed practice
-Directions to send home with volunteers on how to prep the math racers for the next day
-Ideas for how to implement math racers in your classroom
My daughter is doing these in her second grade class and is so motivated by it, I had to purchase them for my class (first grade). Great product. Clear instructions. The info sheet for parent volunteers is super helpful, too. (repeating my comment from the subtraction purchase)

I purchased these a couple of months ago for the new school year. Instead of making so many copies I copied mine onto cardstock, laminated and cut into strips. We use them everyday and this cuts down on paper. When my students move up to the next fact I just write their number with dry erase marker onto the top of their racer strip.

I am very excited to make this work in my class. My 2nd graders need to work on their math facts and what better way then to make it a cute "race" to get them motivated! I made mario kart racers with +1 mushrooms. I cant wait to see my kids' reactions.

Hoping to be able to implement this in my class, lacking the parent involvement may make it a bit tough...

Very easy to use..I will use it for students to grab and practice along with my rocket math program.
Hi there!!! I usually give the kids 1 minute and 30 second for the tests, but this can be adjusted depending on your students and their needs! Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions! :)

Will you or do you have a set of subtraction facts too? Also, do you have your students complete all of the addition facts and then go to the subtraction facts?
Hi there! Yes! I am working on the subtraction facts right now! I have my kiddos go through addition facts 1-12, then through 3 sets of doubles, then three sets of doubles plus one, and finally through three sets of mixed practice. Once they have passed all of these addition facts, they move on to their subtractions facts. The subtractions facts include 1-12, and three sets of mixed practice as well. Please let me know if you have any other questions!!! Thanks! :-)
