Fact fluency is one of the most important steps in laying a solid mathematical foundation. It helps students become automatic with the fact knowledge which can free up more space in their working memory. Fact fluency also helps to lessen confusion in higher-level math concepts.
Connect Five Math Fact Fluency game includes games boards covering facts 0-10. The common core now states that children should be fluent in their facts up to 10. There are also 3 boards of mixed facts for review.
There are 14 game cards total. These game cards are perfect to use in partners, small groups, math centers and more! Print out each page and laminate if possible. Students can use wipe off markers, small math manipulatives or the tokens provided to mark off their spaces.
Students take turns picking a question to answer. If they get the answer correct, they get to place their marker on that square. If they get it incorrect, they don't get to place a marker and it is the other players turn to choose where to go. The students are trying to get five markers (going any way) in a row. If they can't get five in a row, then the person with the most markers on the board total wins.

I have taught for five years. I taught fifth grade for a year, a third-fourth split and straight third for the other years. Before I received my teaching license I worked with a preschool and an afterschool program that served Title 1 students K-6. I have been selected by my district to lead professional developments on the language arts and math common core. There, I trained teachers of all ranges in the new standards.
MY TEACHING STYLE
I believe in using Whole Brain Teaching. It actively encourages students to participate in a fun, yet controlled, manner. Students learn more when they are speaking, explaining, and showing all at the same time.
