After conversing with dh, we decided to have our first grade (twins) dd and ds write out the addition tables, just like we did as students. I am older than you and I can remember writing all our math tables sometimes, five, ten or even twenty times. But I can tell you it was very effective. My older step-children did not know or understand their math form public school, after have them write them out 20 times each they learned them by heart. And still do. Even if they put all the 1's x down the page.. they still needed to get the answer. I going to start the table this coming week. I wish you and Camille well, this week. <BR/>P.S. Do you like the Library Thing??? Or is it a waste of my time? I saw you mentioned it on the WTM forum the other day. I can't thank you for all your info. I have been encouraged and blessed. Now if only I can get as organized as you seem to have it. I truly appreciate all your efforts for those of us who are trying.<BR/>LeslieAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-35451298.post-44448709440279743802007-09-26T14:41:00.000-04:002007-09-26T14:41:00.000-04:00Jessica- I just want to say thanks for sharing all...Jessica- I just want to say thanks for sharing all the research you did into Math facts! This has been on my mind (along with skip counting) for my 2nd grade daughter and your research is very helpful! Thanks again!

I suppose it was too obvious for me to see. This may help my K/1st grade student.<BR/><BR/>One thing that has been a huge success for him with math facts is just letting him play with a calculator. He has learned a great deal of multiplication this way.Petuniahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14059145750315789676noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-35451298.post-77951012061473570892007-09-25T12:24:00.000-04:002007-09-25T12:24:00.000-04:00Seems to me you had a solution but need to be crea...Seems to me you had a solution but need to be creative with it. She played with the popsicle sticks? they were different colors? create problems that make her build the problem(math fact) you are focusing on. and patterns? with colored sticks you could make math fact patterns...1+1, 1+2, etc. seems that if she liked playing with those sticks you should use that to your advantage ;-)<BR/><BR/>tessTeressahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/06053117541076140481noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-35451298.post-72810031136099605132007-09-25T11:50:00.000-04:002007-09-25T11:50:00.000-04:00I have had success in memorizing math facts with t...I have had success in memorizing math facts with the following procedure: have the student write out all the +1's up to 10. Then while jumping on a mini-trampoline she recites them while looking at the same facts on a white board. Then I take the white board away and she recites them in order while jumping. She has to remember which one she recited proir. The key is to jump one time to every number, except jump twice for equals. For example, 3+1=4 should be jump (3) jump(+) jump(1) jump jump (equals) jump 4.<BR/>After learning this procedure we have learning all our facts quite fast. My older son is using this to cement the mult. facts.<BR/>A jump rope would be good if she is profecient in jumping rope.Ldeehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18140822590169358035noreply@blogger.com
