I am not sure about you all… but there are days (and weeks) where I just feel a little over my head.   When that happens, it helps for me to organize a little.

Math Fluency in Kindergarten:  Need for Speed

We jumped into our Need for Speed this week with full force.  My students needed a place to keep their Progress Card.  So I created a pocket in the front of their Math Journal.

The VERY last thing I need is another stack on my desk.  I updated the packet to include these graphics. I organized all of the timed sheets into this box.  Then I can just carry the box from table to table and quickly see which paper to hand out. File boxes are perfect for this.

We made equation rings to use for practice at home and at school. Binder rings can be found HERE

Math Fluency:   Ongoing Progress Monitoring

They really love these time tests.  If a student does not pass the timed section, I tell them,  “Meet me at my table when we do math centers.”  Then I have 3-4 students who come to me and we work on these equations.  I have been keeping a close eye… and everyone seems to really love this.  I have watched those who struggle a little to see if they seem bothered.  It might help that I have mini-marshmallows at my small group table.   So far… so good!

Math Fluency:  Practice During Center time too!

During stations they have more time to practice.  I had one kid say, “In two days I will be at Need for Speed.”   I tell you, timers are so motivating!

    My kids loved this. I watched them during the Need for Speed Drills. Definitely, an all time favorite math resource.

    I actually love to organize things and love your idea about carrying the box of tests from table to table. I'm going to try that. The equation rings are fantastic. I do somethings similar with sight words, but equation rings are somethings that I'd love to use with students having difficulty. Thanks for sharing these.

    I love your organization idea! I also love the key ring idea for math facts. How many facts do you usually have on the ring? Do you just put on the facts the kids have trouble remembering or start with one set and change them? I love that idea. It is great with sight words and would be with math facts, too!
    Thanks, Deedee!

    How fast do you expect a kinder to solve math problems?

    • Deedee February 2 at 5:46 am

      Initially, we set a goal of 9 problems in under 1 minute, but I found my students were about to answer more than that. WOO! HOO! The majority of my classroom could answer 15 questions in under 1 minute.
