Updated on 8-7-14 with Mixed Review Practice Added
This book is over 200 pages and full of basic subtraction fact practice--an essential component of math instruction. This "program" will help teachers track student's progress in learning their math facts for RTI documentation.

You can use these fact sheets in a variety of ways to meet your needs. This is how I use them:
PART 1—Learning the Facts-- FOR NINE WEEKS, I just work a different set of facts each week. For example, +1’s for a week, +2’s for a week, +3’s for a week and so on. Everyone does the same problems & homework everyday.
Flashcards* and Homework A, B, & C go home on Monday to work on each night.
Class Practice A- I give on Tuesday in class, we check it, and I send it home.
Class Practice B- I give on Wednesday in class, we check it, and I send it home.
Class Practice C- I give on Thursday in class, we check it, and I send it home.
TEST- I give on Friday in class, we check it, and I take a grade on it. I only count the problems they miss (not the problems they didn’t complete—but I usually give the students enough time to finish all the problems in crayon.)
*If you need flashcards, you can download them from my TPT store.
PART 2—Incentive Program-- Next, I have the students working on trying to master each set of facts as an incentive program.
I have folders with several copies of each set of practice sheets in them to make it easy to pull out the set I need for each student each day because they will be each working on a different set of facts—depending on which one’s they’ve mastered.
Students complete one “Facts in a Flash Mastery Test” each day. There are three different tests for each set of facts. If they have completed A, B, & C but still haven’t mastered the set, I have them do A again, and so on.
If they finish the sheet completely, and it’s correct, in one minute—they have mastered that set—and they move onto the next set the next day.
They get a sticker on the chart or some piece of the incentive “program” I am using. I have included a sticker chart, and a “color in the lightning bolt” chart. I am working on some other incentive ideas, and will post them on TPT when I get them finished. I have included the charts in color and black and white. I don’t have a colored printer, so I just copy the black and white ones on colored paper.
PART 3– Daily Fact Fluency—Mixed Review-
These problems are mixed up. Students track their progress daily to see how many problems correct per minute they can get. I usually do Part 2 and Part 3 together at the same time, so students are working on their own level of facts, but also getting a mixed set as well.
There are 3 homework pages for each “set” of facts—A, B, & C. They are the same as Class Practice A, B, & C from Part 1.
I have included 3 pages that have instructions for parents and 3 pages WITHOUT parent instructions, so you can add your own if you like to do it different that I do.
Then there are 25 pages with mixed facts the Fact Fluency Probes from Part 3. One set with instructions, and one set without.
