Put down your coffees people and get ready to be amazed. I cannot believe I haven’t shared this with you yet. I have seriously been hold out on you all. My sincerest apologies. What I want to share today is – Xtra Math. It’s a free (yes… free) website to work on math facts. It gives loads of amazing data, tracks progress, and get this – focuses on speed! Yep. That’s right fluency is involved. The format is each to use and provides a streamlined approach to working on math facts. I know it’s getting towards the end of the year but this is something to start now and make sure to include in your next year’s class planning!
Let me give you a little tour. Every student has their own login and starts by taking a placement test. This will place them somewhere addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. Most of my kids started in addition because they weren’t fast enough during the placement test and then they quickly moved up. From the teacher view, you can login and see progress after the placement test.
Students complete math facts and “race the teacher” which my kids love.
At the end of each set of flashcards, they get a smily face for each consecutive problem they get correctly within the certain time frame. Flashcard sets focus on 3-5 unmastered math problems. I love how this program breaks it down into small pieces! The program tracks how often they are logging on plus their advancement towards mastery of each skill!
Set up your classroom logins now! This is perfect to send home for the summer and have kids keep at it with their math work! Enjoy 🙂
