Why teach a math fact each day? Have you seen the benefit of how just doing something consistently like counting the days of school every day builds up such a deep understanding of place value with students? The consistency, repetition, and tapping into prior knowledge are all elements that help make that effective. Math Fact of the Day incorporates those elements to help students to gain not only memorization of their math facts, but depth of understanding with numbers interacting in this thing called math. In essence, these activities will allow opportunity for students to make connections between the math facts to deepen their understanding.
How to incorporate Math Fact of the Day? This is created to be used on an interactive whiteboard during something like a morning routine, an afternoon routine, or a whenever routine. It does not really matter as much as when you do the routine, but just as long as it is done consistently. This resource comes in both PowerPoint and Googles Slides format, so this will be able to be used by many teachers.
Can it only be used on a whiteboard? You can also assign students the file. I actually included options with the text boxes, so students can utilize this during math centers or math stations too. However, there is a little more tech specifications if using it for this purpose. Please see the preview for more details.
What facts does it cover? This covers addition facts 1-12 with sums up to 24. That is 144 different math facts, so this resource can be used all year long consistently. If you only cover up to 20 or something less, you can easily delete any facts you don't want to cover by deleting the slide.

What I LOVE about Using Digital Resources:
•Kids love using technology. It's engaging!
***Technical requirement: You will need PowerPoint or Google Slides on any devices that will be used with this resource. Please see the preview for more details if you plan to assign students a file from this. You only need access to PowerPoint or a free Google account if just using with an interactive whiteboard with your class. ***
***For interactive whiteboard use: To use any dragging/dropping features, your interactive whiteboard will need the feature that performs mouse functions with touch in programs outside of their software. Most should have this now, but there may be some older whiteboards out there that only have this feature when using their brand software. Basically, the touch feature takes the place of how you would use a mouse in other applications such as Google Slides, PowerPoint, surfing the internet, etc. If using. This feature that allows the computer to use touch on the screen to function like a mouse may sometimes only work in the software of whatever brand interactive whiteboard you are using, so make sure you can use that feature in other applications before purchase if you plan to use this resource on an interactive whiteboard.***
