“Animal Math Facts” is a tried and true Differentiated Math Facts program for numbers within Five. It is designed to help students memorize their basic math facts within 5 (both numbers in the equation are 0-5).
As teachers, our goal is for them to memorize these important facts by the end of the kindergarten year. These are facts that students need to know “just like that (snap)” just like we know sight words “just like that”! We have been doing a lot of practice building these equations using manipulatives, using ten frames and with number paths, but our goal is to move away from those strategies and get them memorized automatically. Students should be able to tell the answer orally within 3 seconds.
Kids will work through various Animal Math Fact Levels as they master these facts. They will be able to move at their own pace and request to be assessed when they are ready.
Included in this Bundle is everything you need to implement this Fact Fluency System!
