Math facts made fun! Motivate your students to learn their math facts!
Want to get your students excited about learning their addition facts? Try this fun karate/martial arts incentive program with your class! I've been using this program with my students and have found it to be a very successful and motivating way for my students to learn/memorize their math facts. It only takes about 5-10 minutes a day to incorporate in your math block and your students will be begging to take timed tests each day to pass to the next level and earn their black belt in addition!
The program works with brain research and introduces only a few new facts each day. It engages both written and oral practice at school and at home. As students pass levels, they earn new colored “belts” on their way towards earning a black belt.
