My students were bored working towards the goal of math fluency. With this simple and easy to manage incentive students are now excited and engaged in math fact fluency!
Each student will get a gumball machine. Every time they can pass a math facts test (we have a 60 second time limit in our class) they earn a gumball for their machine. You can also give students an actual gumball too, but that is up to you!
+ Addition Gumball Machine (color and black and white)
+ Addition Tests 1 to 10 (2 per page to save ink and paper)
+ Subtraction Gumball Machine (color and black and white)
+ Subtraction Tests 1 to 10 (2 per page to save ink and paper)
+ Gumballs Master Page (print on colored paper, or allow students to color their own color before adding to the machine)
- We glue our gumball machines in our math journals.
- I use a 1" hole punch to punch out gumballs rather than printing and cutting them out.
- We use xtramath.com to practice our fact fluency (it's free!)
- Try hole punching gumballs from scrapbook paper. It's adorable and fun.
