I created these certificates to motivate and encourage students to work towards fluency and automaticity with their number facts. We work on the facts starting the first week of school and as students feel ready, we check that fluency!
If they know their facts "in a snap," they get to take the certificate home after I have signed and dated it with great flourish. I make it a big deal because I know math will be much easier for them down the road if these skills are automatic.

Fluency with numbers is an important part of 3rd grade. Higher grades build upon the foundation that students learn in this grade level. There are several milestone standards that, when mastered, should be celebrated. These certificates are an easy and effective way to reinforce student accomplishments.
