Addition and Subtraction Fluency

Now that we are half way through the year... and my students have mastered their addition and subtraction concepts ... it is time to focus on SPEED. I need to make sure they really have those math facts down! So...it is time for lots and lots of facts fluency quizzes.

Since the textbooks we are piloting don't have nearly enough facts fluency pages, and the websites that allow me to generate them aren't as visually appealing as I would like, I decided to create my own template and start generating my own FLASH FACTS quizzes.

I decided on 20 problems per page - which makes it easy to score. Then, I added in a few of the Melonheadz superheroes. FLASH seemed to be the perfect character for the regular addition and subtraction quizzes and the other masked superhero characters were perfect for the pages I created for solving the UNKNOWN.

Here is a sample of what I have come up with.  I am hoping to have a huge pack available soon on TPT.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement.

  5. My control systems solution was great but unfortunately, it was delivered a day after the deadline. I took Matlab assignment help from here because I had read some really good reviews about MatlabAssignmentExperts and especially where the customers were happy about their assignments being delivered on time and sometimes even a few days before the deadline. I had a totally different experience and the only reason I was able to beat my deadline was that I had given the Matlab assignment helperwho handled my task the wrong deadline. Still, the platform isn’t so bad because I got a decent grade from the solution they prepared but they should address the late delivery issue asap.
