So, I am going to try my hand at Blogging Through the Alphabet again. Last year I think I made it to week 3, letter C. I am hoping to have better luck this year and make it through all 26 letters! Without further ado, here is my “A”.
To help us learn our facts we be using a variety of materials from some of my favorite teacher vendors on the Teachers Pay Teachers , including:
The interactive math packet from The Moffatt Girls is a favorite here. Montana used this set when she was learning her addition/subtraction facts. The author also is the producer of the sight word program we use, Ready 2 Read.
The girls both enjoy racing the clock to complete their timed drill tests for sight word reading so I am hoping they will enjoy the math drills too.
The girls will have plenty of time to drill each other or play math games during the week to help master these facts. This will be a great time for them to study when I am working with someone else. Fluency tests will be given each Friday afternoon with intermittent prizes given out here and there. Small things like a special treat from the store etc.
Blogging Through the Alphabet is being hosted this round by Meg @ Adventures with Jude and Cristi @ Through the Calm and Through the Storm. Be sure to check out the posts and see how creative everyone is as we make our way from A to Z.
