Do your students need motivation to master their basic addition and subtraction facts? This program is perfect for providing students with a FUN incentive to practice that fact fluency up to 20!
To get started, print off a class set of ice cream cones (two versions included) to use as a classroom display or for students to keep in their math journals/notebooks. Then, give students the "Fast Fact" quizzes as often as you like throughout a particular unit, quarter/semester, or throughout the whole school year. Each time a student completes a quiz within one minute (or the time frame of your choice), they earn the corresponding ice cream scoop to add to their cone!
As students see their ice cream cones begin to stack up, they can't WAIT to master all of their facts! It will only be a matter of time before you and your students are celebrating their success with an ice cream sundae party!
I have also included an individual set of quizzes for both addition (+1 to +10) and subtraction (-0 to -10). Simply laminate each set and place on a ring for easy practice during centers, stations, or for early finishers!
The full components of Ice Cream Math are:
- Directions for teacher use
- Ice cream cones for students (color & black/white versions)
- Ice cream scoops (0 through 10 for both addition & subtraction)
- "Fast Facts" quizzes (0 through 10 for both addition & subtraction)
- Tracking Sheets to easily track which students have successfully completed which quizzes
- Individual sets of quizzes for additional student practice
Each year I have used this program, my students beg for the next Fast Fact quiz!! Because the entire class is working towards a common reward, you will also see students quizzing, congratulating, and motivating each other throughout the entire process!
