These were made with Kindergarten through second grade in mind. There is a section for kindergarten sums up to 5, first grade sums up to 10, and second grades sums up to 20. Each section has flashcards and addition sheets. It provides an opportunity to practice math addition fluency. The train set is a great way to motivate students. You can print each sheet of the train out on regular sized paper or cardstock. If you have access
to a printer that prints posters, you can make them bigger.
Cut each piece out and tape together the tracks so that it looks like a real train. You can make it flat or glue cardboard pieces behind it to make it stand out from the wall. Each student will receive an animal as a piece to move so they can see which level they are on.
You can use this to motivate students in the classroom. You could also use this to motivate an entire grade level by placing it in the hallway. You could use student names or just assign each student a number to go on the piece to move to each train car.
You could use paperclips, small clothes pins or etc. to attach to the pieces that the students move. I plan on putting a magnet strip on the back of each train car. Then I am going to put the pieces for the students on a popsicle stick and put a magnet on the front of it at the bottom. This way the students or teacher can move the stick easily as students complete each level. Cut sheets apart to use. I will only let the students move to the next level if they make a 100
without making corrections. I always make them go back and correct the ones they miss. I like to keep a record sheet of which level each student is on. Each math fact sheet has a place where you can write the number of tries and their score. I have made five different sheets for each level so that students who take more than one try to complete a level will not have to do the same sheet over and over. I only made two different sheets for second grade.
