With Common Core standards entering school curriculum, I have tried to find ways to make “fact-learning” less time-consuming and “thinking about math” more the focus. In order to help with this, I created math “tickets.”
I use these pages a couple of ways, and I'm sure you can come up with more ways! One thing I'll do is copy a class set, then cut them into the four separate sections. I give the section with the stars to count on Monday, the next section on Tuesday, the next section on Wednesday, and the hardest section on Thursday. Each day when they finish work, they get the section (I call them "tickets") to complete. When they have it completed, they give me their "ticket" for free choice time/recess/etc. (This is also called an “exit slip” at our school.)
Another way to use them is to differentiate. I'll give my more advanced students the harder "tickets" and the students who need more practice the easier ones. Even if they get the same ticket a few days in a row, they'll begin to memorize the facts, which is really my goal.
The set comes with 20 worksheets. Ten are for addition, and ten are for subtraction. Answer keys are also included.
