Encourage yours students to learn their basic math facts with automaticity through implementing this motivating and encouraging math fact program.
Students learn their basic facts through math fact families. They will learn four related facts (two addition and two subtraction) in each level starting with the family 1-1-2 and moving all the way through 10-10-20 (a total of 55 levels) . If they are able to solve 33-34 problems in one minute they will advance to the next level!
Students are motivated to advance by being awarded a Math Monster Reward Card after each level they master. The students can earn up to 55 monster cards that can be displayed in trading card pockets or a chosen method of storage.
I have been using this program in my classroom since 2014 and have seen great progress in student mastery and retention of the basic math facts. Many students enter my classroom able to solve less than 20 problems in 3 minutes. By the end of the school year, the majority are solving 100 problems or close to 100 in three minutes! They also develop a solid understanding of the relationship between numbers in a fact family. This, in turn, helps them understand the relationship between multiplication and division and prepares them better for third grade. The students LOVE the monster cards and work hard to earn them through mastering their basic facts. They love displaying the reward cards in their trading card pockets.
I didn't want to sell it on TpT until I was able to say it was a success by using it in my own classroom for the past three years. I am able to say, with confidence, this program has proven to be a success in my classroom and has been very motivating for my students.
