I promised I would tell you about another awesome resource for memorizing math facts. I wish there was a way I could tell everyone in the world about this program because I love it and believe in it that much! Have you heard of xtramath.org? OMG! It is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I found it this summer when I was randomly typing into Google, "Dear God, please let my students memorize their math facts." Ok, I really was just looking for interactive math games and this popped up!
So what is this amazingness you ask? To get full details go to the website because they even made videos for teachers, parents, and kids to watch that tells about all the goodies.
What I love most about this is how easy it is and how much information the teacher gets from the program. You have a page for each kiddo that will tell you which facts they mastered, were too slow at, or totally missed. It will give you a percentage for each session. When kiddos master a fact program, for example: addition, it will email you and you can print off a premade certificate for them that has their name and it even has your name on it!
I shamelessly brag on my kiddos to my principal and my colleagues any chance I get. Almost ALL of my kiddos were on the division program in 3rd quarter of third grade. That means they mastered all of their addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts. It does not let them move on until every single fact is mastered! I LOVE it!
So have you ever heard of this?
P.S. I did not get struck by lightning! Yay!
