Fourth graders and beyond need a firm foundation in basic Math facts, which means that these facts have become their “sight vocabulary” just as the Dolch Words are in Reading. Included in this offering are 24 speed practices for addition. Each of these practices includes 20 problems which focus on several facts each, as well as several review facts from earlier speed practices. Each practice is written on a ½ sheet of paper. There are no answer keys for the Speedy Fact Trials.
At this point I would also like to introduce my “green disclaimer”. I am an ardent supporter of making as much use as possible out of each piece of paper. Therefore my margins are narrow, while still giving adequate space for what is most important, the students’ work. I’m a believer in printing on both sides of the paper. While color is eye catching, it is far more expensive to print. So, all of my materials print well in black and white to help stretch all of our schools’ budgets
